Spirits of the dead : Roman funerary commemoration in Western Europe by Maureen Carroll( )

27 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 1,676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spirits of the Dead examines the importance attached to preserving the memory of the dead in the Roman world, and explores the ways in which funerary inscriptions can be used to reconstruct Roman lives, however fragmentarily and imperfectly. It is the only study to examine epigraphic, historical, and archaeological evidence in order to gain insight into the way Romans used funerary texts to establish a dialogue with their own society. Maureen Carroll brings together a large body of material from many geographical areas, shedding light on provincial and regional variation in funerary commemoration and even on the differences between funerary traditions of neighbouring towns." "Readership : archaeologists, ancient historians, classicists."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Living through the dead : burial and commemoration in the classical world by Maureen Carroll( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Living Through the Dead investigates the archaeology of death and commemoration through thematically linked case studies drawn from the Classical world. These investigations stress the processes of burial and commemoration as inherently social and designed for an audience, and they explore the meaning and importance attached to preserving memory. While previous investigations of Greek and Roman death and burial have tended to concentrate on period- or regionally-specific sets of data, this volume instead focuses on a series of topical connections that highlight important facets of death and commemoration significant to the larger Classical world. A diverse set of archaeologically informed approaches is used, including visual reception, detailed analysis of excavated remains, landscape, and post-classical reflections and artefactual, documentary and pictorial evidence is employed. The nine papers present recent research by some of the leading voices on the subject, as well as some fresh perspectives. Case studies come from Thermopylae, the Bosporan kingdom, Athens, Republican Rome, Pompeii and Egypt. As a collected volume, they provide thematically linked investigations of key issues in ritual, memory and (self)presentation. As such, this volume will be of particular interest to postgraduate students and academics with specialist interests in the archaeology of the Classical world and also more broadly, as a source of comparative material, to people working on issues related to the archaeology of death and commemoration --Book Jacket
Earthly paradises : ancient gardens in history and archaeology by Maureen Carroll( Book )

24 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this illustrated book, Maureen Carroll examines the most recent evidence for gardens from the second millennium BC to the middle of the first millennium AD in the cultures of the ancient Near East, Egypt, Greece, Italy and the provinces of the Roman Empire. She explores themes such as house gardens, orchards and parks, sacred gardens and cemetery gardens, and dedicates a chapter to gardens in ancient poetry. She also discusses ancient horticultural practices and the role of gardeners. The final chapter looks at the survival of ancient gardening traditions in the Islamic and Byzantine worlds, and the perception and depiction of paradise in those cultures. Evidence is drawn from archaeology, which can reveal the remains of gardens that were never mentioned in written sources, as well as textual, pictorial and environmental sources." "Illustrated with delightful images from tomb and wall paintings, sculptural reliefs and manuscripts, as well as informative reconstructions and plans, this book provides a fascinating insight into the earthly paradises of antiquity."--BOOK JACKET
Infancy and earliest childhood in the Roman world : 'a fragment of time' by Maureen Carroll( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite the developing emphasis in current scholarship on children in Roman culture, there has been relatively little research to date on the role and significance of the youngest children within the family and in society. This volume singles out this youngest age group, the under one-year-olds, in the first comprehensive study of infancy and earliest childhood to encompass the Roman Empire as a whole: integrating social and cultural history with archaeological evidence, funerary remains, material culture, and the iconography of infancy, it explores how the very particular historical circumstances into which Roman children were born affected their lives as well as prevailing attitudes towards them. Examination of these varied strands of evidence, drawn from throughout the Roman world from the fourth century BC to the third century AD, allows the rhetoric about earliest childhood in Roman texts to be more broadly contextualized and reveals the socio-cultural developments that took place in parent-child relationships over this period. Presenting a fresh perspective on archaeological and historical debates, the volume refutes the notion that high infant mortality conditioned Roman parents not to engage in the early life of their children or to view them, or their deaths, with indifference, and concludes that even within the first weeks and months of life Roman children were invested with social and gendered identities and were perceived as having both personhood and value within society." -- Publisher's description
