"Early metal ages' mining and raw material procurement: From economic strategies to societal impacts"

The lecture deals with the development of sustainable mining between the 4th till the end of the 2nd millennium in West Asia, Eurasia and Europe. Several recent projects, carried out by RUB and DBM (Bochum) highlighted the complex interwovenness of technical, economic and societal spheres in raw material procurement practices of societies of the Caucasus, the Iranian Plateau, the Balkans and Central Europe. The early appropriation of raw materials turned them to socially important resources that influenced the welfare and the societal systems of communities interconnected in these activity spheres. Heuristic problems are occurring for archaeologist when limited parameters are studied, which sometimes results in false or at least questionable interpretation. Therefore, the parameters (quantitative and qualitative ones) to be studied in detail will be considered briefly and examined in the current research projects on gold, copper, tin and salt mining complexes. One basic question will be followed during the lecture, and this is the permanency of societal and economic structures and how it could be achieved by economic strategies that were deeply embedded in societal value systems and cultural practices.

MOSAICnet 2018: Networks in Archaeological Research

International Summer School at Bibracte, Ecole Européenne de Protohistoire

O. Nakoinz, K. Gruel, P. Brun, F. Faupel und C. Filet

Poster in english and french 

Flyer in english and french

 

Ranging from exchange to urban networks, interactions systems are a basic component of every society, from the prehistoric to the modern.
The Research School ‘MOSAICnet: Networks in archaeological research’ aims at bringing together young and senior researchers around this transdisciplinary issue of networks. The Research School offers the state of the art of several methodological approaches (such as Social Network Analysis, Spatial Network Analysis, etc.), resulting from the dialogue between the Human and the Exact Sciences.
It also intends to discuss their contributions to the research on past social, cultural and economic interactions.
The Research School will last 6 days, and will address the matters of the theoretical context of the research on interaction systems, the empirical data we can rely on to grasp them, as well as provide an overview of several available methods of system analysis and reconstruction. Those tools will be applied using the Rstudio software.

 


Application forms available here in english and french

Application Dead-line : 15/05/2018

 

Location

Bibracte site obtained the “Grand site de France” label, for its exceptional archaeological heritage. Situated in the heart of the Morvan Regional Nature Park in today’s central France, the site was the location of one of the first cities of continental Europe, between the 2nd cent. BCE and the 1st cent. CE. The training will take place at the European Research Centre, adjacent to the archaeological site. The Centre possesses a documentation centre on European Protohistory (200 000 volumes), which is open 24 hours a day.

Fees

Courses + accomodation + meals + shuttle from/to train station Le Creusot TGV

300 € : Researchers/Professionals with position
100 € : PhDs and Postdocs without position

Languages

The theoretical training is given in English. Workshops will have support in three languages: French, German and English.

Programme

With the participation of Olivier BUCHSENSCHUTZ, directeur de recherche émérite
CNRS, École normale supérieure, France, Patrice BRUN, Professeur des Universités
Université Paris 1, France, Catalin POPA, Post-doctorant, Université de Leiden, Pays-Bas et Fabrice ROSSI, Professeur des Universités, Université Paris 1, France

  • Block 0 : Introduction to R and Rstudio (optional) (O. Nakoinz, C. Filet and F. Faupel) An introductory course on the use of the R language, intended for participants who have no practical experience of this programming language and of the use of scripts.
  • Block 1 : Networks in Archaeology: considerations and challenges (O. Nakoinz, P. Brun and O. Buchsenschutz) Presentations on the theoretical context of the research on interactions and networks in past societies. Several types of networks and the means to identify and reconstruct them, as well as non-computerbased approaches on spatial interactions are considered.
  • Block 2 : Social Network Analysis (O. Nakoinz) Introduction to Social Network Analysis methods. Different centrality indices are introduced to quantify comparisons between several organization structures of networks from several areas and periods.
  • Block 3 : Exchange systems in space (F. Faupel) Past interactions are constrained by the distance between actors. The course will focus on travel itineraries, by considering the analysis of the road structure, the identification of factors that influence the location of a path, and the method of least cost path analysis.
  • Block 4 : Approaching the organization of exchange systems (C. Filet, F. Rossi) Most of past interactions, their actors and their intensity are not known to archaeologists. The course will be dedicated to ways of approaching the organization of past exchange systems in theabsence of written sources. For this purpose an introduction to spatial interaction models and the study of distribution patterns of archaeological artefacts will be given.
  • Block 5 : Benefits and usefulness of network analyses in archaeology (C. Popa and participants) Critical review of the applicability and limits of each method.

Accommodation at Bibracte

  • Accommodation and meals are fully covered at the Bibracte Research Centre (see below)..
  • Applications are open to senior and young researchers (PhD and Post-docs) as well as all scholars and professionals in archaeology working on communication or exchange networks.
  • While interest in the application of network analyses from the participants is expected, expert knowledge about the methodology or the software will not be necessary.

45. Internationale Tagung des Arbeitskreises für historische Kulturlandschaftsforschung in Mitteleuropa e.V. (ARKUM)

19.09.2018 bis 22.09.2018

Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel

"Exklusion | Inklusion - Transkulturalität im Raum"

Die Tagung findet statt in Zusammenarbeit mit der:

  • Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel, Institut für Ur- und Frühgeschichte
  • Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Institut für Ur- und Frühgeschichte und Vorderasiatische Archäologie


Tagungsort: Kiel
Inklusion | Exklusion - Transkulturalität im Raum
19. – 22. September 2018

(English version below)

Auf seiner 45. Jahrestagung fragt der Arbeitskreis für Historische Kulturlandschaftsforschung in Mitteleuropa (ARKUM e.V.) nach den konkreten räumlichen Manifestationen transkulturellen Exklusions-, Inklusions- und Verschmelzungsprozesse. Die Tagung stellt in den Mittelpunkt, wie transkulturelle Prozesse und Praktiken r äumliche Anordnungen schaffen und wie räumliche Dispositionen auf transkulturelle Prozesse einwirken. Es sollen insbesondere die landschaftlichen Bezüge von Räumen oder Orten betrachtet sowie die Auswirkungen transkultureller Inklusions- und Exklusionsmechanismen auf die Gestaltung und Entwicklung von Kulturlandschaft untersucht werden. 

Wir denken beispielsweise an die Topografien von Migration, Aus- und Einwanderung, identitätsstiftende Praktiken an Grenzen, das transkulturelle Potential von Nicht-Orten, aber auch Prozesse des Ein- und Auschließens durch spezifische Handlungstypen (z.B. religiöse, politische, ökonomische), die sich in materiellen Arrangements niederschlagen. 

In it's 45th annual meeting the Arbeitskreis für Historische Kulturlandschaftsforschung in Mitteleuropa (ARKUM e.V.) looks at specific spatial manifestations of such transcultural processes of exclusion, inclusion and hybridisation. The meeting focuses on how transcultural processes and practices create spatial arrangements and how, on the other hand, spatial dispositions influence transcultural processes. Special attention will be turned to the relations between spaces and places in the landscape as well as the impact of transcultural mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion on the formation and development of cultural landscapes. 

Possible fields of research may be e.g. the topographies of migration, emmigration, immigration, practices of identity-building at borders, the transcultural potential of non-places, but also processes of ex- and inclusion through specific actions (religious, political, economical etc.), which manifest in material arrangements.

Moin 2018

20.08.2018 bis 24.08.2018

Leibniz-Straße 1, Room 205, University of Kiel

Moin: International Summer school on Modelling Interaction in Landscape Archaeology

  • Venue: Leibniz-Straße 1, Room 205, University of Kiel
  • Date: August, 20-24th, 2018
  • Topic: Developing an R Package for network modelling
  • Target group: Ranging from students to postdocs

 

What is it about?
Connecting points, creating patterns, understanding processes. It is often the most exciting task after an intensive phase of data acquisition to start thinking about the dynamics that are inscribed in these data and that wait for their discovery. Distribution maps, diagrams, and typology charts are the tools we use to develop our first narratives that describes or even explains our data. After these first steps we usually move on to more elaborate tools of data analyses that ensure the soundness of our interpretations, objectives the approach to allow comparisons, and enables its reproducibility. During the Summer school we want to present, discuss, and develop one of these methods: a tool to reconstruct, weigh, and model spatial interactions:

Presenting and Discussing spatial interactions
International experts will give introductory talks and use case on they reconstructed spatial interaction and which tools they employed or developed. We are happy to welcome: 

  • Emeritus Professor Dr. Ray Rivers, Imperial College London who developed, together with Tim Evans and Carl Knappett, a comprehensive analytical approach to model and reconstruct (maritime) interaction networks (check the numerous publications on his RG page 
  • Clara Filet, Sorbonne University Paris who uses a extended gravity model approach example publication with references to reconstruct spatial interactions that help to gain insights into economic flows and urbanization processes during LaTéne period.
  • Dr. Francesco Carrer, Newcastle University who is an expert in analysing settlement patterns and Ethnoarchaeology. 

 

Developing a spatial interaction model 
Together with you we want to create a package for the open-source software environment for statistical computing and graphics R that:

  • offers different algorithms to model interactions and flows in space;
  • can be used by any researcher aiming to investigate spatial interactions;
  • enables comparisons between different studies and due to this allows us to investigate the very nature of interactions and flows in landscape archaeology.

 

In addition to this, we will learn about and contribute to reproducible research, a field that gains continuously more importance and will change the practice of planning, conducting, and publishing scientific results in the not too far future see e.g. this example by Ben Mariwck, one of the leading archaeologists in this debate.

Dates and Fees

  • The Summer school will take place in August, 20-24th.
  • Talks, discussion, and joint work takes place at the CAU Kiel in direct vicinity to the Graduate School “Human Development in Landscapes”, Leibnizstr. 1, 24118 Kiel, Germany
  • There are no fees to participate in event. However, since we want to have an intensive workshop atmosphere there are only limited seats available. First come, first serve.
  • The Summer School is organized by:
    • CRC 1266
    • Institute for Pre- and Protohistory at Kiel University
    • ISAAK
  • and funded by:
    • International Center at Kiel University

 

How to apply?
Everybody can enrol who already has some experiences with R and knows the basics of spatial analyses. 
If you want to participate, please write a (very short) Email to Daniel with the following information:

  • Why do you want to participate?
  • What is your level of expertise (in your subject and in R)?
  • What is the current project you are working on?
  • At which institution are you hosted?
  • What is your status (ranging from student to postdoc)?
  • Do you already published on the subject “interaction”?

 

We, i.e. Oliver Nakoinz, Martin Hinz and Daniel Knitter, are looking forward to your application and hope to see you this summer in Kiel!

"Zwischen Savanne und Regenwald - Zur Landwirtschaftsgeschichte West- und Zentralafrika"

Afrika hat eine sehr spezielle Entwicklung der frühen Landwirtschaft durchlaufen, die sich von allen anderen Kontinenten unterscheidet. Während im Nahen Osten, China und Amerika Kulturpflanzen früher oder gleichzeitig mit Haustieren domestiziert wurden, beginnt die Nahrungsproduktion in Afrika mit der Viehhaltung um 6000 v. Chr. in der damals noch grünen Sahara. Domestizierte Pflanzen und Sesshaftigkeit folgten erst um 2500 v. Chr., als mit zunehmender Austrocknung der Sahara die Pastoralisten nach Süden in die Savannenzone zogen. Die westafrikanischen Savannen sind ein sog. Non-Zentrum (nach Harlan) der Pflanzendomestikation mit vielen einheimischen Kulturpflanzen, die in verschiedenen Regionen domestiziert wurden. Die älteste Kulturpflanze ist die Perlhirse (Pennisetum glaucum), die sich ab 2500 v. Chr. aus der Südsahara in ganz Westafrika ausbreitet und um 400 v. Chr. den zentralafrikanischen Regenwald erreicht. Untersuchungen aus zwei aktuellen Projekten der Frankfurter Arbeitsgruppe (Nok/Nigeria und DR Congo) belegen die wichtige Rolle der Perlhirse in zwei sehr unterschiedlichen Lebensräumen. Für die Dominanz und Persistenz der Perlhirse selbst in Gebieten, wo ihr Anbau aus ökologischen Gründen schwierig ist, sind neben Eigenschaften der Pflanze selbst wahrscheinlich kulturelle Faktoren verantwortlich. Eine Besonderheit West- und Zentralafrikas ist die Nutzung von Wildpflanzen bis in die Gegenwart und die Entwicklung einer speziellen Kulturlandschaft mit einer Kombination von Getreideanbau und wilden Fruchtbäumen (Parksavannen).
