 +//​Abstract//:​ Recent scholarship has begun to unveil the culturally rich and dynamic landscape of southwest Iran during the first half of the first millennium BCE (aka the Neo-Elamite period) and its significance as the incubation ground for the Persian Empire. In Profiling Death. Neo-Elamite Mortuary Practices, Afterlife Beliefs, and Entanglements with Ancestors, Yasmina Wicks continues the investigation of this critical epoch from the perspective of the mortuary record, bringing forth fascinating clues as to the ritual practices, beliefs, social structures and individual identities of Elam's lowland and highland inhabitants. Enmeshed with its neighbours, yet in many ways culturally distinct, Elam receives its due treatment here as a core component of the ancient Near East.

 +//​Abstract//:​ Studies of seals and sealing practices have traditionally investigated aspects of social, political, economic, and ideological systems in ancient societies throughout the Old World. Previously, scholarship has focused on description and documentation,​ chronology and dynastic histories, administrative function, iconography,​ and style. More recent studies have emphasized context, production and use, and increasingly,​ identity, gender, and the social lives of seals, their users, and the artisans who produced them. Using several methodological and theoretical perspectives,​ this volume presents up-to-date research on seals that is comparative in scope and focus. The cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approach advances our understanding of the significance of an important class of material culture of the ancient world. The volume will serve as an essential resource for scholars, students, and others interested in glyptic studies, seal production and use, and sealing practices in the Ancient Near East, Egypt, Ancient South Asia and the Aegean during the 4th-2nd Millennia BCE.

 +** Bronze Age Maritime Trade (in the Eastern Mediterranean) **

 +//​Abstract//:​ Seafaring is a mode of travel, a way to traverse maritime space that enables not only the transport of goods and materials but also of people and ideas — communicating and sharing knowledge across the sea and between different lands. Seagoing ships under sail were operating between the Levant, Egypt, Cyprus and Anatolia by the mid-third millennium BC and within the Aegean by the end of that millennium. By the Late Bronze Age (after ca. 1700/1600 BC), seaborne trade in the eastern Mediterranean made the region an economic epicentre, one in which there was no place for Aegean, Canaanite or Egyptian trading monopolies, or ‘thalassocracies’. At that time, the world of eastern Mediterranean seafaring and seafarers became much more complex, involving a number of different peoples in multiple networks of economic and social exchange.
 +
 +This much is known, or in many cases widely presumed. Is it possible to trace the origins and emergence of these early trade networks? Can we discuss at any reasonable level who was involved in these maritime ventures? Who built the early ships in which maritime trade was conducted, and who captained them? Who sailed them? Which ports and harbours were the most propitious for maritime trade? What other evidence exists for seafaring, fishing, the exploitation of marine resources and related maritime matters?
 +
 +This study seeks to address such questions by examining a wide range of material, documentary and iconographic evidence, and re-examining a multiplicity of varying interpretations on Bronze Age seafaring and seafarers in the eastern Mediterranean,​ from Anatolia in the north to Egypt in the south and west to Cyprus. The Aegean world operated on the western boundaries of this region, but is referred to more in passing than in engagement. Because the social aspects of seafaring and transport, the relationship different peoples had with the sea, and the whole notion of ‘seascapes’ are seldom discussed in the literature of the eastern Mediterranean Bronze Age, this volume devotes significant attention to such factors, including: mobility, connectivity,​ the length and purpose as well as the risk of the journey, the knowledge and experience of navigation and travel, ‘working’ the sea, the impact of distance and access to the exotic upon peoples’ identities and ideologies, and much more.

 +
 +//​Abstract//:​ Questo libro rappresenta un manuale introduttivo a più voci sulla medicina dell’antica Mesopotamia,​ basato sulla lettura e interpretazione di testi in grafia cuneiforme e in lingua assiro-babilonese del tardo II e soprattutto del I millennnio a.C. Il volume, che non ha alcun precedente o parallelo in Italia, è concepito ad uso di un pubblico di lettori abituali e a vasto raggio, soprattutto interessato alla storia, tecnologie e condizioni di vita nell’Antichità.
 +Per la sua tematica vasta e articolata e per la molteplicità degli spunti storico-culturali,​ il presente volume è fruibile e di stimolo anche per cultori di fasi più recenti della storia della medicina, in Occidente come in Oriente, per esperti di quelle medicine tradizionali ed etniche tuttora praticate in molte aree del mondo e, infine, per specialisti di area medico-scientifica odierna. ​

 +
 +//​Abstract//:​ Il libro, come la mostra a cui si accompagna, presenta la sorte del tutto particolare di un sito archeologico in Siria durante i recenti sette anni di guerra. L'​antica città di Urkesh, oggi Tell Mozan, nella Siria nord orientale, è diventata un focolaio di attività che sviluppano, attorno al sito archeologico,​ una forte e inaspettata sinergia fra una varietà di comunità e gruppi sociali. In forte contrasto con la violenza distruttrice della guerra e di intenzionali e perversi movimenti iconoclastici,​ Urkesh è emerso come una fonte di speranza e un motivo di orgoglio per le popolazioni che vi gravitano attorno. In questa prospettiva,​ il progetto è anche diventato un modello di quella nuova sensibilità che l'​archeologia come disciplina sta sviluppando - la sensibilità,​ cioè, per il valore del territorio come elemento portante in comune fra gli antichi e chi oggi vi abita. ​

 +//​Abstract//:​ This volume explores the long, rich traditions of viticulture and wine production in Anatolia and Thrace, from the Neolithic era to the present day. Chapters by ten contributing authors illustrate the important and varied roles that viticulture has played in the Anatolian region, and how the vine and wine have shaped the civilizations of Anatolian peoples for millennia. Examining archaeological remains, archival and historical texts, works of art, the records of chroniclers,​ ethnographic data, migration and demographic patterns, and contemporary legislation and advertising,​ the ten authors collectively reveal the importance of wine production and consumption in Anatolia'​s past, and demonstrate why its legacy of tangible and intangible cultural heritage should be valued in the present, and protected in the future. ​
