ARCHAEOLOGY & HISTORY
In the ancient civilizations of
the Eastern Mediterranean,
textiles were generally
much more costly than
foodstuffs, animals or
bronzes; it is very likely that
the same was the case
throughout prehistoric
Europe. In this study, the
first for over seventy years,
Klavs Randsborg examines
completely preserved
woollen dresses, both female and male, from Danish oak coffin graves of
the early second millennium BC. These garments, matched in age and
superb preservation only by finds from Ancient Egypt, along with related
artefacts such as images and figurines, are used to build up a rich picture
of Bronze Age society and culture in the context of archaeological,
ethnographical and historical information from Europe and beyond.
After neo-evolutionism, how
does one talk about the
premodern state? Over the
past two decades
archaeological research has
shifted decisively from
check-list identifications of
the state as an evolutionary
type to studies of how
power and authority were
constituted in specific polities. Developing Gramsci’s concept of
hegemony, this book provides an accessible discussion of general
principles that serve to help us understand and organize these new
directions in archaeological research. Throughout this book, conceptual
issues are illustrated by means of case studies drawn from Madagascar,
Mesopotamia, the Inca, the Maya, Egypt and Greece.

FLUID PASTS

Archaeology of Flow Matt Edgeworth

Fluid Pasts outlines an innovative archaeological approach to the study of rivers and flowing water, challenging the view that rivers are somehow more natural, less cultural than other kinds of material evidence. In bringing archaeological perspectives to flowing water, as opposed to static and solid objects, the book follows water from rivers along numerous channels to the many archaeological sites where running water was utilised or built into designs and layouts, or where other kinds of flow have left material traces. A focus on flow changes our perception of otherwise ordinary sites and landscapes, its very nature prompting us to think about the material world differently, and to develop more dynamic and fluid forms of analysis.

PAGAN AND

CHRISTIAN

Religious Change in Early Medieval Europe David Petts

Conversion to Christianity was a key cultural process that saw the transformation of Europe from the Classical world to medieval Christendom. The study of conversion in the early medieval world has increasingly become a focus of study for both historians and archaeologists, but there has been a noticeable lack of engagement with the methodological and theoretical problems underpinning any attempt to explore the archaeology of belief. This book, drawing on case studies and examples from sources including the ‘Celtic’ west, Anglo-Saxon England, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, tackles these key issues and in particular explores two under-theorised aspects of conversion: the relationship between archaeology and belief, and the ‘pagan’ as a key element in conversion.

ARCHAEOLOGY & HISTORY
ARCHAEOLOGY & HISTORY

WRITING ANCIENT PERSIA

Thomas Harrison

The history of the Achaemenid Persian empire has been largely rewritten in the last thirty years by an international group of scholars, inspired partly by new sources of information, but also by a concerted attempt to look at Ancient Persia in its own terms, rather than through the lens of neighbouring societies, and to excise the pejorative bias of the Greek sources. This essay is a critique of this new Achaemenid historiography, concentrating on the difficulties of using Greek sources for the writing of Persian history. It argues that the excising of Greek bias should be seen to be, if possible at all, a much more complex procedure. It then examines two themes in more detail: the representation of the Kings and Queens (in Greek sources and in recent histories of Persia), and the accounts given of the Persian Wars and the conquests of Alexander. It concludes with an analysis of past versions of Persian history, suggesting that there is a much greater degree of continuity between earlier accounts of Persia (often derided as narrowly Hellenocentric or orientalist) and those of the new Achaemenid historiography.

GREEKS AND PARTHIANS IN MESOPOTAMIA AND BEYOND, 331 BC – AD 224

Wolfram Grajetzki

Greeks and Parthians is an innovative, archaeologically based investigation into urban life in Mesopotamia and the northern part of what is now the Persian Gulf, from the arrival of Alexander the Great to the end of the Parthian Empire. With detailed coverage of the cities of Seleucia-Ktesiphon, Babylon, Uruk, Susa, Spasinou Charax, Ikaros (Failaka) and Tylos (Bahrein), Wolfram Grajetzki shows that for most people in the region, life and material culture were not, as is commonly stated, transformed by the coming of the Greeks. The Parthians have tended to receive a negative press from historians, but their supremacy lasted some 350 years and the archaeology of their cities reveals innovations in architecture and decorative arts, with lavishly equipped houses showing a high standard of living.

Wolfram Grajetzki has participated in excavations in Egypt and Pakistan and taught Egyptology at Humboldt University, Berlin.

THINKING THE OLYMPICS

The Classical Tradition and the Modern Games Edited by Barbara Goff & Michael Simpson

This is the first book to address the convergences and divergences between the ancient and modern Games from the perspective of the classical tradition, examining the ways in which connections between ancient Greece and the revived Olympics may be constructed, interrogated, lauded, or deplored. The Athens Games in 2004 were a climax of convergence, as the Games effectively returned to their ancient origins. Yet the Beijing Games in 2008 celebrated another, even more ancient civilisation. Thinking the Olympics brings together contributions from various disciplines ranging around two opposing themes. On the one hand, the Games are presented as an ideal enactment of pure, intrinsic Olympic values, such as peace through sport; on the other, the Games appear as a messy performance of extrinsic investments by diverse groups with their own interests, commercial as well as political.

IMPERIALISM

Donald Walter

Baronowski

This is the first study to explore in depth the complex reaction of the Greek historian Polybius to the expansion of Roman power. Although he considered imperialism intrinsically noble, and both admired and supported Roman domination, Polybius also demonstrated a certain intellectual distance from Rome, evident in his application of abstract principles to the evaluation of Rome and other imperial powers, his acknowledgement of the aggressive drive underlying all imperial ventures, his willingness to criticize Rome, his concern for the interests of subject nations, the promotion of his own political views, and his willingness to contemplate the end of Roman power.

THE CLASSICS AND SOUTH AFRICAN IDENTITIES

Michael Lambert

The teaching and research of the Classics in South Africa are deeply rooted in the racial, political and educational inequalities which have characterised its turbulent history. Michael Lambert opens three windows on to this history, using the creation of identities as his theoretical lens. The foundation of the Classical Association of South Africa in 1956 and the cultural reinforcement of Afrikaner nationalist identity; the deployment of British colonial identity in public discourses about the role of the Classics in apartheid South Africa at an English-speaking university; and the exploration of black African identities in response to the teaching of the Classics at missionary institutions, where ‘vocational training’ was locked in combat with a classical education, regarded by an educated black élite as the means for upward social mobility in a highly-stratified colonial society.

PAGAN GODDESSES IN THE EARLY GERMANIC WORLD

Eostre, Hreda and the Cult of Matrons Philip A. Shaw

This book considers evidence for Germanic goddesses in England and on the Continent, and argues on the basis of linguistic and onomastic evidence that modern scholarship has tended to focus too heavily on the notion of divine functions or spheres of activity, such as fertility or warfare, rather than considering the extent to which goddesses are rooted in localities and social structures. Such local religious manifestations are, it is suggested, more important to Germanic paganisms than is often supposed, and should caution us against assumptions of pan-Germanic traditional beliefs. Linguistic and onomastic evidence is not always well integrated into discussions of historical developments in the early Middle Ages, and this book provides both an introduction to the models and methods employed throughout, and a model for further research into the linguistic evidence for traditional beliefs among the Germanic-speaking communities of early medieval Europe.

INVENTING BYZANTINE ICONOCLASM Leslie Brubaker

Byzantine ‘iconoclasm’ is famous and has influenced iconoclast movements from the English Reformation and French Revolution to Taliban, but it has also been woefully misunderstood: this book shows how and why the debate about images was more complicated, and more interesting, than it has been presented in the past. It explores how icons came to be so important, who opposed them, and how the debate about images played itself out over the years between c. 680 and 850. Many widely accepted assumptions about ‘iconoclasm’ – that it was an imperial initiative that resulted in widespread destruction of images, that the major promoters of icon veneration were monks, and that the era was one of cultural stagnation – are shown to be incorrect. Instead, the years of the image debates saw technological advances and intellectual shifts that, coupled with a growing economy, concluded with the emergence of medieval Byzantium as a strong and stable empire.

AESCHYLUS: SUPPLIANTS

Thalia Papadopoulou

Aeschylus’ Suppliants dramatises the myth of the fifty daughters of Danaos, who flee Egypt and come to Argos as suppliants, trying to escape forced marriage to their Egyptian cousins. It was long considered to be the earliest surviving tragedy. Even after the mid-20th century, when new evidence established a later date for the play, critics tended to condemn it for its alleged ‘archaic’ features. As a result it has long been underestimated, although a careful examination reveals it to be one of the most exciting tragedies. This companion employs a variety of critical approaches to set the play in its literary, dramatic, social and historical contexts, and also offers a thorough examination of the performance of the tragedy, investigating topics such as stage action, music, song and dance.

AESCHYLUS: PROMETHEUS BOUND I.A. Ruffell

Prometheus Bound is a play beloved of revolutionaries, romantics and rebels, though its blazing idealism is tempered with an acute awareness of the compromises, dangers and obsessions of political action. This companion sets the play in its historical context, explores its challenge to authority, and traces its reception from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries. Many scholars have disputed its Aeschylean authorship, but it has proved the most influential of tragedies outside academia. Marx’s favourite tragedy, Prometheus Bound is also a foundational text for the genre of science fiction through its influence on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. In its open-eyed celebration of technology and democracy, it is the tragedy for the modern age.

CHALLENGES TO THE POWER OF ZEUS IN EARLY GREEK POETRY

Noriko Yasumura

In the earliest extant works of Greek literature, Zeus reigns supreme in the Olympian hierarchy. However, scattered and scanty though they may be, there are allusions to threats of rebellion which challenge Zeus’ supremacy. This book examines these passages, drawn mainly from Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, Hesiod’s Theogony and the Homeric Hymns, to offer some intriguing new interpretations. Focusing on the themes of cosmic/divine and generational strife, Noriko Yasumura shows that hints of lost legends underlie these texts. Tracing their hidden logic helps to improve our understanding of early Greek poetry. Throughout the book the texts and fragments scrutinised and discussed are quoted both in Greek and in the author’s accompanying English translation.

THE MYTH OF PAGANISM

Nonnus, Dionysus and the World of Late Antiquity Robert Shorrock

With the adoption of Christianity as the official religion of the Roman world in the fourth century AD, the role of the poet underwent a radical transformation. In place of the traditional poet of the Muses there emerged a new figure, claiming inspiration from Christ. This established a conceptual framework that still drives modern approaches to the period: Christian poetry is taken ‘seriously’; ‘pagan’ or ‘secular’ poetry is largely ignored. The Myth of Paganism re-evaluates the role of ‘pagan’ poetry in late antiquity. Attention focuses on an exploration of the contemporary resonance of Nonnus’ Dionysiaca – traditionally regarded as a ‘pagan’ epic in terms of its theme and content, yet in all probability the work of a ‘Christian’ poet responsible for a Homeric-style retelling of St John’s Gospel.

The Impact of Freed Slaves on the Roman Empire

Edited by Sinclair Bell & Teresa Ramsby

How did freed slaves reinvent themselves after the shackles of slavery had been lifted? How were they reintegrated into society, and what was their social position and status? What contributions did they make to the society that had once – sometimes brutally – repressed them? This collection builds on recent dynamic work on Roman freedmen, the contributors drawing upon a rich and varied body of evidence – visual, literary, epigraphic and archaeological – to elucidate the impact of freed slaves on Roman society and culture amid the shadow of their former servitude. The contributions span the period between the first century BC and the early third century AD and survey the territories of the Roman Republic and Empire, while focusing on Italy and Rome.

VIRGIL’S

GARDEN

The Nature of Bucolic Space

Frederick Jones

Virgil’s book of bucolic verse, the Eclogues, defines a green space separate from the outside worlds both of other Roman verse and of the real world of his audience. However, the boundaries between inside and outside are deliberately porous. The bucolic natives are aware of the presence of Rome, and Virgil himself is free to enter their world. Virgil’s bucolic space is, in many ways, a poetic replication of the public and private gardens of his Roman audience – enclosed green spaces which afforded the citizen sheltered social and cultural activities, temporary respite from the turbulence of public life, and a tamed landscape in which to play out the tensions between the simple ideal and the complexities of reality. Virgil’s Garden looks at the Eclogues in terms of the relationship between its contents and its cultural context, making connections between the Eclogues and the representational modes of Roman art, Roman concepts of space and landscape, and Roman gardens.

SLAVERY

Edited by Richard Alston, Edith Hall & Laura Proffitt

Evidence relating to the ‘real world’ of antiquity – inscriptions, historiography and legal speeches – has dominated studies of ancient Greek and Roman slavery, although providing few direct accounts by slaves of their subjective experiences. Yet the imaginative fictions produced by the ancient psyche in its literature and art provide many representations and discussions of what it felt like to be a slave. This volume provides a sustained discussion of the theory and practice of handling ancient poetry and images in order to enhance our understanding of the way that slavery was experienced by both slaves and their owners in the ancient world. Twelve essays by an international team of specialists develop a variety of theoretical positions, reading practices and interpretive strategies for recovering the psychological, emotional and social impact of ancient slavery from Homer, Aristotle, Greek drama, visual images, Roman poetry and imperial Roman dream interpretation.

RECONSTRUCTING THE SLAVE

Kelly L. Wrenhaven

Although the importance of slavery to Greek society has long been recognized, most studies have primarily drawn upon representations of slaves as sources of evidence for the historical institution, while there has been little consideration of what the representations can tell us about how the Greeks perceived slaves and why. Although historical reality clearly played a part in the way slaves were represented, Reconstructing the Slave stresses that this was not the primary purpose of these images, which reveal more about how slave-owners perceived or wanted to perceive slaves than the reality of slavery. Through an examination of lexical, visual and literary representations of slaves, the book considers how the image of the slave was used to justify, reinforce and naturalize slavery in ancient Greece.

CTESIAS:

ON INDIA

Translation and Commentary Andrew G. Nichols

A Greek doctor serving at the court of the Persian king Artaxerxes II in the fifth century BC, Ctesias met travellers and visitors from the far eastern reaches of the Persian Empire, merchants from along the Silk Road and Indians from near the Indus Valley. His Indika (On India), was the first monograph ever written on India by a western author, introducing its readers to such fantastic creatures as the unicorn and the martichora, along with real life subjects such as the parrot and the art of falconry. Confirming pre-existing conceptions of what were considered to be the edges of the earth, Ctesias’ Indika helped shape the Greek view of India. Offered here for the first time in over a century is a full English translation and commentary on all the extant fragments of the Indika, along with fragments of Ctesias’ minor works never before translated into English.

COSTUME IN GREEK TRAGEDY

Rosie Wyles

This is the first book-length survey of tragic costume to be published for over forty years. The core of the book focuses on tragic costume in its original performance context of fifth-century Athens, but the implications of subsequent uses in Roman and more recent performances are also taken into consideration. Most importantly, the reader is invited to think about how tragic costume worked as a language in ancient performance and was manipulated physically and verbally in order to create meaning. Elements of this language are shown through a series of test cases from a range of ancient tragedies. All ancient passages are given in translation and the book includes a glossary of terms.

CLASSICS ON SCREEN

Ancient Greece and Rome on Film Alastair A.L. Blanshard & Kim Shahabudin

Cinema loves Greece and Rome. Hollywood epics, animated movies, avant-garde features – all have turned to classical antiquity for inspiration. On the silver screen, we see a world of virtuous Christians, depraved pagans, gladiators and muscle-bound demigods – a potent mix of sex, violence and art. So pervasive are these images that this cinematic output dominates the public understanding of the ancient world. Through analysis of ten influential films, this book examines the representation of Greece and Rome in popular and art-house cinema. Arranged by cinematic genre, it offers an accessible introduction to the depiction of antiquity in cinema.

FIGHTING HYDRA-LIKE LUXURY

Sumptuary Regulation in the Roman Republic Emanuela Zanda

From the Old Testament to classical Rome, from the religious societies of the Middle Ages to Elizabethan England, luxury has been morally condemned. In Rome, sumptuary laws seemed the only weapon to defeat ‘hydra-like luxury’, the terrible monster that was weakening even the strongest citizens. Here Emanuela Zanda explores the reasons and purposes behind the enactment of such legislation in Rome during the Republic, placing it in a wider political and social framework. She engages with the historical-literary polemic against luxury and focuses on government intervention in matters of extravagance by taking into consideration not only sumptuary laws but also other measures that dealt with self-indulgence. She addresses and answers a number of questions about the purposes that the ruling class was trying to achieve, about its real motivations, and about the significance of the ideological discourse surrounding the enactment of these laws.

EMOTION, GENRE AND GENDER IN CLASSICAL ANTIQUITY

Edited by Dana Munteanu

This tightly focused collection of essays analyses the degree to which expressions of emotion in ancient literature and art become an ‘artistic’ rather than a ‘social’ construct. To what degree do literary genres, philosophy and visual arts produce expectations for the arousal of certain emotions? Are the emotions of women, for example, represented differently in different genres? How and why do literary genres and visual arts concentrate on specific emotions and stylise them accordingly, and how do particular emotions relate to gender within literary texts?

PHOENICIA

An Introduction

Mark Woolmer

The Phoenicians played a fundamental role in shaping the history of the Mediterranean. Lauded by Homer as unrivalled navigators and traders, they founded colonies across the length of North Africa and into Southern Spain, yet as a people they have often remained an enigma. This introduction aims to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding this ancient culture. Presenting the latest research and archaeological discoveries, it explores the social, political, economic and ecological changes that occurred in Phoenicia between the Early Bronze Age and the start of the Hellenistic era. Phoenician government and society, agriculture and economy, trade and colonisation, warfare, religion, and art and architecture are all discussed in order to illustrate the character and achievements of this vibrant civilisation, which was able to maintain its unique identity and culture in the face of external threats from states such as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon and Persia.

This book offers an introduction to the main forms of spectacle in the Roman world (human and animal combat, chariot racing, aquatic displays), their nature, context and social importance. It explores the vast array of sources, from literary to archaeological material, that informs the subject, examines the spectacles with special emphasis on their physical setting, and considers the variation in the provision of venues and their context across the Empire.

ROMAN EGYPT

Livia Capponi

Egypt is by far the best- documented province of the Roman Empire. The dryness

of its climate means that an

enormous number of literary and documentary papyri have survived – a unique, reliable

and lively source that documents Egypt in more detail than any other Roman province. Hitherto these have

not been used extensively by Roman historians, on the erroneous assumption that Egypt is somehow ‘atypical’ as

a Roman province. However,

scholars now agree that Egypt should be devoted more attention by anyone interested in the history of the Roman Empire. This book offers a first approach to the subject, presenting a survey of the most important

aspects of life in the province under Roman domination, from the conquest by Octavian in 30 BC to the 3rd century AD, as they emerge from the micro-level of the Egyptian papyri and inscriptions, but also from the ancient literary sources, such as Strabo, Diodorus and Philo, and from the most important archaeological discoveries.

Livia Capponi is Lecturer in Ancient History, Newcastle University.

LATIN LANGUAGE TESTS FOR LEVELS 1, 2 & GCSE

Ashley Carter

This collection of tests provides practice for students preparing to take the new Latin language examinations at the WJEC examination board Levels 1 and 2. It also includes tests similar to those used in the OCR examination board GCSE examinations. The book is divided into five sections, each devoted to a different format or level of tests. Words that are not expected to be known at each level are glossed. The range of grammatical and syntactical features is similar to that found in the public examinations. The tests are designed to cover translation and comprehension of specially constructed stories in Latin. Users are not expected to have familiarity with any particular course book, and the stories may also be used simply as a graduated Latin reader, if desired. Also available: Latin Language Tests: Mark Schemes 9781853997525 £8.99/ US$17

entertainment, Pompeii, and Herculaneum. Each chapter can be read independently, although there are many cross-references and links between each of them. There are also useful Appendices on the city of Rome, Roman politics, currency values, clothing, and the calendar. Review questions throughout the book challenge students to read further and reflect on some of the most important social, political and cultural issues of ancient Rome, as well as comparing them with those of their own society. Essential reading for teachers and students of Classical Civilisation, this book will also be of considerable interest to those involved in drama and citizenship courses.

This selection of poems from the third book of Ovid’s Amores is designed to meet the needs of those studying or teaching the verse literature prescription for OCR Latin AS level, 2012-2014. Introductory essays by Jennifer Ingleheart discuss Ovid’s historical and literary context, and offer an overview of the Amores as a whole. In addition, each poem is accompanied by an exploratory essay. The Latin text is supplied, and at the back are extensive language and explanatory notes. All words not included in the GCSE Defined Vocabulary List are glossed.

LATIN STORIES

A Pre-GCSE Reader Henry Cullen, Michael Dormandy & John Taylor

Latin Stories is an ideal first reader for students of Latin. It offers 100 self-contained passages of manageable length, chosen for their intrinsic interest and adapted from a wide range of ancient authors. Generous help is given, with a short introduction to each story and glossing of all proper names and non-GCSE vocabulary. The collection will also be attractive to older students beginning or returning to the language. Section 1 provides 30 passages, starting with very short and simple stories and building up to the level of the current OCR GCSE paper Language 1. Section 2 provides 30 passages at the level of the GCSE paper Language 2, with its more demanding grammar and vocabulary requirements. Section 3 provides 40 longer passages in the style of current GCSE papers, with comprehension questions as well as sections for translation: 20 for Language 1 (stories from mythology or Roman life) and 20 for Language 2 (stories from Greek and Roman history).

Henry Cullen teaches Classics at Tonbridge School.

FROM PLATO TO POSTMODERNISM

The Story of the West through Philosophy, Literature and Art Christopher Watkin

Bridging the gap between what is taught in schools and the cultural knowledge required at university, this book gathers together the cultural history of the West into one concise volume, Nearly four thousand years of Western history come together in one unfolding story in which philosophy, literature and art all reflect and shape the twists and turns that have built today’s world, weaving its way from the West’s Greco- Roman and Judeo-Christian origins through the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Enlightenment and Romanticism to the postmodernism of the twenty-first century. With the help of diagrams, illustrations and timelines, terms like ‘gothic’ and ‘baroque’, ‘idealism’ and ‘the death of God’ are explained and set in context, along with important names from Aristotle, Abraham and Charlemagne to Michelangelo, Blake and Derrida.

Christopher Watkin is Lecturer in the Department of French, University of Cambridge.

ALCIBIADES AND THE SOCRATIC LOVER-EDUCATOR

Edited by Marguerite Johnson & Harold Tarrant

In the Platonic work Alcibiades I, a divinely guided Socrates adopts the guise of a lover in order to divert Alcibiades from an unthinking political career. The contributors to this carefully focussed volume cover aspects of the background to the work; its arguments and the philosophical issues it raises; its relationship to other Platonic texts, and its subsequent history up to the time of the Neoplatonists. Despite its ancient prominence, its authorship is still unsettled; the essays and two appendices, one historical and one stylometric, come together to suggest answers to this tantalising question.

TAMING ANGER

The Hellenic Approach to the Limitations of Reason Kostas Kalimtzis

Taming Anger is an important contribution to the study of emotion in the ancient world and today. From Homer to Aristotle, understanding anger and harnessing its power was at the core of Hellenic civilization. Homer created the framework for philosophical inquiries into anger, one that persisted until it was overturned by Stoicism and Christianity. Plato saw anger as the guardian of justice while Aristotle went further, conceiving of it as bound to the logos of friendship. Yet both showed, in different ways, that anger, when not nurtured properly, could become the guardian of injustice and the defender of psychological deformity. Though the philosophers sought ways to bring anger under the command of reason, they emphasized reason’s limited ability to withstand the impulses of anger. The Greeks’ view of the emergence of anger in public life as an early warning sign of disease and dissolution retains its importance to this day.

Kostas Kalimtzis is an independent scholar who took his PhD in Philosophy at the University of Florida.

TEN GIFTS OF THE DEMIURGE

Proclus on Plato’s Timaeus Emilie Kutash

Proclus’ commentary on Plato’s Timaeus is perhaps the most important Neoplatonic commentary. In it Proclus contemplates nature’s mysterious origins and at the same time employs the deductive rigour required to address perennial philosophical questions. Nature, for him, is both divine and mathematically transparent. He renders theories of Time, Eternity, Providence, Evil, Soul and Intellect and constructs an elaborate ontology that includes mathematics and astronomy. He gives ample play to pagan theology too, frequently lapsing into the arcane language of the Chaldaean Oracles. Ten Gifts of the Demiurge is an essential companion to this rich but complex and densely wrought text, providing an analysis of its arguments and showing that it, like the cosmos Proclus reveres, is a living coherent whole.

Emilie Kutash is Lecturer in Philosophy, St Joseph’s College, New York.
