[Ancient Architecture in Syria: Anderîn - Kerrātîn - Ma ͑râtā]
الأندرين – كراتين – معراتة هو جزء جديد من أجزاء العمارة القديمة في سوريا، تأليف هوارد باتلر وترجمة عائشة موسى. ويأخذنا هذا الجزء في جولة جديدة تطوف بنا بين كوكبةٍ من 42 موقعًا أثريًا لا تقل جمالًا عن سابقاتها، ويتميز كل منها بمعلمٍ أو أكثر حافظ على شكله بما يكفي ليميط اللثام عن فنٍ جديدٍ من فنون العمارات القديمة. فتارةً نجد كنيسة بازليكية وتارة تصادفنا ثكنات منيعة، وتارة أخرى تستقبلنا منازل وخزانات ومدافن وحمامات تبهرنا بجودة صقل حجارتها وتصاميم تيجانها وثراء نقوشها وفسيفسائها الخالدة ومداميكها المتناوبة بين البازلت والآجر.
إنها جولة لن تنسى في مدن أثرية كاملة تمتد جذورها في عمق التاريخ، تستحضر لنا صورة شاملة عن الفنون العمرانية لحضارات نهضت وازدهرت هنا، وخلّفت أوابد تعد منبع علمٍ تنهل منه الأجيال القادمة.

Il-Anderîn - Kerrātîn - Ma ͑râtā, written by Butler and translated by Aisha Moussa, is a new tour to 24 archaeological sites that are no less attractive than any other site in Syria. Each boasts one or more landmarks that are still well preserved to belong to the ancient architectural masterpieces in the region. The spectacular basilicas, fortified barracks, houses, reservoirs, tombs and baths all display stones highly finished, capitals well designed and richly carved, mosaics delicately patterned, and alternating bands of brickwork and basalt.
It is a tour to be remembered among archaeological cities of great antiquity, depicting the architecture of civilizations that rose and flourished here, then left behind ruins that became the knowledge resource for future generations.
Volume Editor:
Burial and Memorial explores funerary and commemorative archaeology, A.D. 284-650, across the late antique world, from Catalonia to Cappadocia. The first volume includes an overview of research, and papers exploring bioarchaeology, mortuary rituals, mausolea, and funerary landscapes. It considers the sacralisation of tombs, movements of relics, and the political significance of cemeteries. The fate of statue monuments is explored, as memorials for individuals. Authors also compare the spoliation or preservation of tombs to other buildings, and, finally, how the city itself, with its monuments, served as a place of collective memory, where meanings were long maintained.
The second volume includes papers exploring all aspects of funerary archaeology, from scientific samples in graves, to grave goods and tomb robbing and a bibliographic essay. It brings into focus neglected regions not usually considered by funerary archaeologists in NW Europe, such as the Levant, where burial archaeology is rich in grave good, to Sicily and Sardinia, where post-mortem offerings and burial manipulations are well-attested. We also hear from excavations in Britain, from Canterbury and London, and see astonishing fruits from the application of science to graves recently excavated in Trier.

This first volume includes an overview of research, and papers exploring bioarchaeology, mortuary rituals, mausolea, and funerary landscapes. It considers the sacralisation of tombs, the movements of relics, and the political significance of cemeteries. The nature and fate of statue monuments is explored, as memorials to individuals. Authors also compare the destruction or preservation of tombs in relation to other buildings. Finally, the city itself is considered as a place of collective memory, where meanings were long maintained, via a study of spoliation.

Material Culture, Socio-territorial Features, Archaeozoology and Archaeometry
Editor:
The Oasis of Bukhara, Volume 3: Material Culture, Socio-territorial Features, Archaeozoology and Archaeometry, focuses on the study of material culture (pottery and glass), as well as on the archaeoscience activities that took place during the archaeological mission MAFOUB (2009-2023). The topics in this third, concluding volume concern environmental aspects, preliminary results on archaeozoology, the reconstruction of the evolution of the fauna over nineteen centuries, and politico-territorial aspects. It completes the urban and demographic framework that was presented in the previous two volumes.

Numinous Fields has its roots in a phenomenological understanding of perception. It seeks to understand what, beyond the mere sensory data they provide, landscape, nature, and art, both separately and jointly, may mean when we experience them. It focuses on actual or potential experiences of the numinous, or sacred, that such encounters may give rise to. This volume is multi-disciplinary in scope. It examines perceptions of place, space, nature, and art as well as perceptions of place, space, and nature in art. It includes chapters written by art curators, and historians and scholars in the fields of landscape, architecture, cultural geography, religious studies, philosophy, and art. Its chapters examine ideas, objects, and practices from the ancient time of Aboriginal Australians’ Dreaming through to the present. The volume is also multi-cultural in scope and includes chapters focussed on manifestations of the sacred in indigenous culture, in cultures influenced by each of the world’s major religions, and in the secular, contemporary world.

Author:
Structured as five microhistories c. 632-705, this book offers a counternarrative for the formation of Islamic architecture and the Islamic state. It adopts a novel periodization informed by moments of historical violence and anxiety around caliphal identities in flux, animating histories of the minbar, throne, and maqsura as a principal nexus for navigating this anxiety. It expands outward to re-assess the mosque and palace with a focus on the Qubbat al-Khadraʾ and the Dar al-Imara in Kufa. It culminates in a reading of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem as a site where eschatological anxieties and political survival converge.
