Die Bleifunde der Römisch-Republikanischen Anlage Von Sanisera, Menorca: Archäologische und Archäometrische Analyse

Author: Regine Müller

Publisher: Archaeopress Archaeology

ISBN: 9781784919887

Category: History

Page: 266

View: 5115

This volume includes the archaeological and archaeometrical analysis of the lead finds from the Roman Republican military fort of Sanisera in northern Minorca. The fort was built after the Roman conquest of the island in 123 BC and abandoned during the last third of the 1st century BC. By correlating typological-archaeological and scientific methods, the site's unusual large number of lead objects/artefacts are examined within their find context and reviewed for superregional connections to contemporary sites within the Mediterranean. Furthermore, based upon the results of the find analyses as well as the examination of written sources, the site's embedding within the historical context of the development of the late Roman Republic and early Imperial times is presented, especially in respect to the conquest of the Mediterranean and the consolidation of the Roman authority there. - Die vorliegende Arbeit umfasst die archäologische und archäometrische Analyse der Bleifunde der römisch-republikanischen Militäranlage von Sanisera im Norden Menorcas. Die Anlage entstand nach 123 v. Chr. in Folge der Eroberungen der Baleareninseln und wurde spätestens im letzten Drittel des 1. Jh. v. Chr. aufgegeben. Anhand der Korrelation typologisch-archäologischer und naturwissenschaftlicher Methoden wird hier die ungewöhnlich hohe Anzahl von Bleifunden aus der Anlage innerhalb ihres Fundkontextes analysiert und auf überregionale Verbindungen zu kontemporären Fundorten im Mittelmeerraum überprüft. Darüber hinaus erfolgt - basierend auf den Ergebnissen der Fundanalyse sowie der Auswertung von Schriftquellen - die Einbindung der Anlage in den historischen Kontext der späten römischen Republik und frühen Kaiserzeit, besonders im Zusammenhang mit der Eroberung des Mittelmeerraums und der Konsolidierung der römischen Vorherrschaft dort.

In every culture, ideas and practices concerning the human body reflect what people think about the human person and his/her dignity. Contemporary cultural and medical-technical developments pose new questions to traditional attitudes to bodiliness. How can these questions be addressed from the perspective of intercultural ethics, in particular with regard to organ donation? Harm Goris is assistant professor of systematic theology at the Catholic Theological University at Utrecht (the Netherlands).

Gegenwärtige westliche Gesellschaften sind von einem Paradoxon gekennzeichnet: Einem gesellschaftlichen Imperativ auf Wohlgefühle korrespondiert eine alarmierende Zunahme an psychischen Leidenszuständen. Burnout, Angstzustände, Depressionen - auch Selbstwahrnehmungen basieren zusehends auf einem therapeutischen Blick. International renommierte Wissenschaftler_innen, darunter Christina von Braun, Monica Greco, August Ruhs und Paul Stenner, gehen in diesem Buch aus transdisziplinärer Perspektive der Frage nach, wie diese Entwicklungen analysiert und erklärbar gemacht werden können.
