Stonehenge complete by Christopher Chippindale( Book )

65 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the first edition of Stonehenge Complete was published, it won the British Archaeological Book Award and was immediately hailed as the ideal introduction to this most famous and mysterious of all Europe's ancient sites. People have puzzled over Stonehenge for centuries: speculating and dreaming about it, drawing and painting it, trying to make sense of it. Here is the story of the one real Stonehenge, as well as the many unreal Stonehenges that archaeologists, tourists, mystics, astronomers, artists, poets and visionaries have made out of it. This new edition has been completely revised and updated to include the latest theories and discoveries, bringing the Stonehenge story into the 1990s."--Jacket

Seeing and knowing : understanding rock art with and without ethnography by Geoffrey Blundell( )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection focuses on David Lewis-Williams and the extent of his personal impact on the field of rock art research. It is largely through his work that San rock art has come to be understood so well, as a complex symbolic and metaphoric representation of San religious beliefs and practices. The purpose of this volume is to demonstrate the depth and wide geographical impact of Lewis-Williams' contribution, with particular emphasis on the use of theory and methodology drawn from ethnography that he has used with inspirational effect in understanding the meaning and context of rock art in va
The archaeology of rock-art by Christopher Chippindale( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pictures, painted and carved in caves and on open rock surfaces, are amongst our loveliest relics from prehistory. This pioneering set of essays goes beyond guesses as to what the pictures mean, instead exploring how we can reliably learn from rock-art as a material record of distant times: in short, rock-art as archaeology." "Sometimes contact-period records offer some direct insight about indigenous meaning, so we can learn in that informed way. More often, we have no direct record, and instead have to use formal methods to learn from the evidence of the pictures themselves." "The book's nineteen chapters range wide in space and time, from the Palaeolithic of Europe to nineteenth-century Australia."--Jacket

Contagious ideas : on evolution, culture, archaeology, and cultural virus theory by Ben Sandford Cullen( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a book about the transmission of culture and the development of a 'Cultural Virus Theory' to explain the processes of cultural change. This was Ben Cullen's intellectual project and his ideas, presented here in an edited version of his writings, are an important contribution to archaeological theory." "Setting aside pre-existing frameworks for explaining culture change in archaeology and anthropology, Ben Cullen develops his own neo-Darwinian theory. Recognising that cultural traits are inherited by individuals independently of their genes and that selection acts on pre-existing variations, he explores ways in which cultural traits can be seen as self-reproducing entities analogous to viruses; the appropriateness of this analogy is the most distinctive premise of his Cultural Virus Theory." "The core of this book is taken from Ben Cullen's doctoral thesis. After completing that he began to apply his theory to the explanation of cultural persistence and change in specific cases such as megalithic religion and Renaissance art, and to introduce new refinements of the virus metaphor for human culture."--BOOK JACKET

From Malibu to Rome : Further Developments on the Return of Antiquities by David W. J Gill( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During 2006 three major North American Museums, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, agreed to return a significant number of antiquities to Italy. Acquisition information relating to the return of 26 items to Italy and 4 to Greece from the Getty can be added to the details known from the objects returned from Boston. A more detailed picture is emerging of how antiquities, apparently looted from Italy, were being passed through Switzerland on their way to dealers in Europe and North America. This information also points toward other antiquities that may be included in future agreements.

From Boston to Rome : Reflections on Returning Antiquities by David W. J Gill( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The return of 13 classical antiquities from Boston's Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) to Italy provides a glimpse into a major museum's acquisition patterns from 1971 to 1999. Evidence emerging during the trial of Marion True and Robert E. Hecht Jr. in Rome is allowing the Italian authorities to identify antiquities that have been removed from their archaeological contexts by illicit digging. Key dealers and galleries are identified, and with them other objects that have followed the same route. The fabrication of old collections to hide the recent surfacing of antiquities is also explored.
