"Life and Death in Asia Minor combines contributions in both archaeology and bioarchaeology in Asia Minor in the period ca. 200 BC-AD 1300 for the first time. The archaeology topics are wide-ranging including death and territory, death and landscape perception, death and urban transformations from pagan to Christian topography, changing tomb typologies, funerary costs, family organization, funerary rights, rituals and practices among pagans, Jews, and Christians, inhumation and Early Byzantine cremations and use and reuse of tombs. The bioarchaeology chapters use DNA, isotope and osteological analyses to discuss, both among children and adults, questions such as demography and death rates, pathology and nutrition, body actions, genetics, osteobiography, and mobility patterns and diet. The areas covered in Asia Minor include the sites of Hierapolis, Laodikeia, Aphrodisias, Tlos, Ephesos, Priene, Kyme, Pergamon, Amorion, Gordion, Bogazkale, and Arslantepe. The theoretical and methodological approaches used make it highly relevant for people working in other geographical areas and time periods. Many of the articles could be used as case studies in teaching at schools and universities. An important objective of the publication has been to see how the different types of results emerging from archaeological and natural science studies respectively could be integrated with each other and pose new questions on ancient societies, which were far more complex than historical and social studies of the past often manage to transmit"--Publisher description.
The Oxford Handbook of Early Christian Archaeology brings together expert work by leading scholars of the archaeology of Early Christianity and the Roman world in the Mediterranean and surrounding regions. The thirty-four contributions to this volume survey Christian material culture and ground the history, culture, and society of the first seven centuries of Christianity in archaeological method, theory, and research. The essays emphasize the link between archaeological fieldwork, methods, and regional and national traditions in constructing our knowledge of the Early Church and Christian communities within the context of the ancient Mediterranean, Near East, and Europe. Three sweeping introductory essays provide historical perspectives on the archaeology of the Early Christian world. These are followed by a series of topical treatments that focus on monuments and environments ranging from Christian churches to catacombs, martyria, and baths, as well as classes of objects of religious significance such as ceramics, lamps, and icons. Finally, the volume locates the archaeology of the Early Christian world in fifteen regional studies stretching from Britain to Persia, highlighting the unique historical contexts that have shaped scholarly discussion across time and space. The thorough, carefully-researched essays offer the most intensive, state-of-the-art treatment of recent research into the archaeology of Early Christianity available.

La publication repose sur les fouilles menées à l'agora de Palmyre par H. Seyrig et R. Duru en 1939et 1940. Complétées dans les années 1960 par le dégagement, conduit par la Direction Générale des Antiquités et des Musées de Syrie, d'un bâtiment voisin appelé " salle annexe ", ces recherches étaient largement restées inédites. Reprenant l'ensemble de la documentation dispersée entre Damas, Beyrouth, Strasbourg et Bordeaux, les auteurs fournissent une nouvelle chronologie ainsi qu'une nouvelle interprétation de ce groupe monumental (agora-forum entre basilique et curie), qui repose sur l'étude des inscriptions (étude entamée dans les années 1970 sous la direction d'Ed. Frézouls) et des consoles, du décor architectural et de la sculpture. Cet ensemble est réintégré dans une compréhension globale de la documentation palmyrénienne. L'étude de ce complexe monumental conduit également à redéfinir l'évolution de l'urbanisme de la ville. Au terme de cette analyse, apparaît qu'une forte volonté impériale a imposé comme un modèle romain -forum entre basilique et curie- dans ces terres des confins orientaux de l'Empire romain par ailleurs imprégnés de culture parthe.
