    Caught in a trap: landscape and climate implications of the insect fauna from a Roman well in Sherwood Forest2018Ingår i: Archaeological and Anthropological Sciences, ISSN 1866-9557, E-ISSN 1866-9565, Vol. 10, nr 1, s. 125-140Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire is often considered a well preserved ancient landscape, subsequently having survived by way of centuries of management as a hunting preserve. Archaeological evidence suggests otherwise, with an enclosed landscape beginning in the pre-Roman Iron Age and continuing through the Romanperiod. Due to the nature of the region's soils, however, there is little empirical, palaeoecological evidence on its environmental history prior to the medieval period. This paper presents an insect fauna from a Roman well in a small enclosure in north Nottinghamshire, on the edge of Sherwood Forest, and its interpretation in terms of contemporary land use. Wells and small pools act as large pitfall traps and mayeffectively sample aspects of the local and regional insect fauna. The Wild Goose Cottage fauna and its environmental implications are also compared with a number of archaeologically and geographically similar contexts.

    Excavations on Roman pottery kiln sites in Cantley Parish, South Yorkshire, 1956–19752022Ingår i: Journal of Roman Pottery Studies Volume 19 / [ed] Steven Willis, Oxbow Books, 2022, Vol. 19, s. 44-146Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The South Yorkshire Roman pottery industry is concentrated largely in the parish of Cantley, immediately south-east ofDoncaster, the site of the fort and associated settlement of Danvm. Over seventy kilns, lying either side of the Lincolnto York via Castleford road, have been located, of which 55 have been excavated. This report deals with the remainingunpublished material, that from Cantley Kilns 30–32, 35–36 and 40–44. The earliest excavated kilns belong to themid-second century and production continued at least until the mid-fourth century. Material from Doncaster and othersites, however, suggests that earlier local late first and early second century production centres remain to be identified.Kiln types range from surface-built with removable furniture, to more substantial deeply excavated types with survivinginternal structures, including radial firebars over single and double pedestals, to more massive permanent floors overup to four pedestals. The products include mortaria, beakers, cooking pots/jars and bowls. White slip is employed onmortaria and red and white paint occurs on a few other vessels. Most of the material is in a hard gritty fabric producedin both light grey and red oxidised forms with varying degrees of burnishing. The mortaria have Mancetter/Hartshillaffinities which appear evident even after the demise of stamping by SARRIVS and others, and the cooking pots andbowls, reflect the general trend of Black-burnished ware production, although the latest forms do not occur. Threetypes, lid-seated jars, wide-mouthed/shouldered bowls and large bowls/pancheons of truncated conical form, belongto different, perhaps Continental traditions. Whilst most of the material appears to have been marketed locally, a fewvessels travelled further, particularly in the mid-second century, when Rossington Bridge, on the southern edge of theindustry, was involved in supply to the Antonine Wall.

    A re-assessment of numbers. The case of Cantley Kilns 33–4 and 37–9 using EVEs and comparing vessel counts between two sampling events2022Ingår i: Journal of Roman Pottery Studies Volume 19 / [ed] Steven Willis, Oxbow Books, 2022, Vol. 9, s. 147-164Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The selective archiving of pottery sherds in museums is rarely analysed with respect to its potential impact on subsequent re-analysis. An undergraduate dissertation on pottery groups from the production site at Cantley provided an opportunity to test this empirically. Two quantification events are thus explored through simple statistical and visualisation methods and the implications of different quantification methods, including the use of EVE (Estimated Vessel Equivalents), discussed.

    Omodernt: Människor och tankar i förmodern tid2009Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kan vi idag ha något att lära av de klassiska, medeltida och tidigmoderna kulturerna? Många skulle svara ja på den frågan, men det finns också de som skulle beskriva det förmoderna som irrationellt, traditionsbundet, kollektivistiskt och framför allt otidsenligt.

    Att behålla kontakten med det förmoderna behöver inte betyda att man bekräftar ett "arv" från det förflutna eller ägnar sig åt återbruk av äldre tiders idéer. Bättre är att omvandla, utveckla eller avveckla tidigare tankar eller kritik kring sociala och estetiska mönster. I antologin Omodernt - Människor och tankar i förmodern tid medverkar elva forskare som representerar en rad humanistiska discipliner. Deras texter berättar på mångfacetterade sätt om idéer och föreställningar, språk och texter från antiken till 1600-talet som är relevanta än idag. De argumenterar för vikten av kunskap om de perioder som ligger före vår moderna tid och ger konkreta exempel på forskning i den andan.

    Det viktiga är att uppmuntra kommunikation över seklen, viljan att vidga sina egna associationer kring mänskligt handlande, att fördjupa sina insikter om hur människor i historien försökt att hantera sin existentiella och samhälleliga situation. Genom sådana perspektivbyten kan vi i bästa fall få klargörande idéer även om vår egen tid.

    Beauty and the Beast: Femininity, Animals and Humour in Middle Comedy2011Ingår i: Classica et Mediaevalia, ISSN 0106-5815, E-ISSN 1604-9411, Vol. 62, s. 51-80Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Approximating humans to animals is a technique employed in Greek Literature, drawing on epic stylistics. The topsy-turvy nature of Old Comedy encouraged the use of animal choruses and characters. In Middle Comedy, their dramatic use appears limited: a number of similes are built around refernces to animals for both male and female characters, producing social comments in humorous form. This paper explores how animal semantics in selected fragments (Alexis and Epicrates)  impart occasional otherness to female entities (women and hetairai) reinforcing the sense of difference from the norm, whereas on other occasions they subtly underline the importance of females in the civic environment.

    Beyond deviant: Theodora as the other in Byzantine imperial historiography2015Ingår i: Deviant women: cultural, linguistic and literary approaches to narratives of femininity / [ed] Tiina Mäntymaki; Marinella Rodi-Risberg; Anna Foka, Oxford: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2015, s. 29-47Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Early Byzantine historiography offers two contradictory portrayals of Theodora  (Crowned Empress 427-458 CE). Whereas in Procopius' Wars of Justinian and Buildings she appears to be a courageous and influential empress, in his later work, Secret History, she is represented as a deviant female figure. Procopius' narrative of Theodora is overall disapproving of her character and actions. He discusses her early years as a 'shameless' performer and a prostitute, brought up in the social margins of Constantinople; Similarly, during her reign, he describes her exercise of power over the palace and her subjects as cruel and violent, driven by premeditated self-interest. In this chapter, I aim to discuss Theodora's portrayal by Procopius as a sociologically deviant female; it is a systematic study of what the author considers to be social norm violations that are subject to social sanction. I will specifically concentrate on Theodora's depiction as a sexually deviant young performer. I will then focus upon actions of cruelty and violence in her political and social career as an Empress.  I will show how the paradigm of Theodora, in Procopius' Secret History, can be read as both making visible coercive social, political and religious power structures, as well as, disenfranchising femininity in early Byzantium.

    Half-Naked yet Empowered?:  Spartacus (2010-) (Ancient) Gender Equality in Contemporary Television2013Ingår i: 12th Annual Hawaii International Conference on Social Sciences, Honolulu Hawaii, 2013Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Spartacus is attested in several ancient sources (Plutarch, Appian, and Florus) as the leader of a rebellion against the Roman Republic (73 to 71 BC). Despite that none of Spartacus' historical representations overtly suggest that he aimed at reforming Roman society by abolishing slavery and promoting equality, he has inspired a number of intellectuals across times and cultures as a egalitarian leader. Marx, in the Manchester letter to Engels (1861), considered him a real representative of the ancient 'proletariat’ and members of the German Spartacus League, a forerunner of the Communist Party of Germany. In contemporary popular culture, the most recent reception of the tale of Spartacus is the US Television series Spartacus: Blood and 

    Sand (premiered on Starz in: 2010- followed by a late prequel and a sequel), where he is also portrayed as a just and egalitarian leader.

    In this paper, I will discuss how Spartacus (2010-) promotes social and gender equality as an ancient virtue within a contemporary context. Unlike Spartacus’ historical and other cinematic representations, women play a major role in the 2010- TV series either as slaves that join the rebellion, inspired by the egalitarian Thracian slave-leader, or wealthy Romans who oppose him. Despite incidental nudity, scenes of a sexual and violent nature, a TV MA rating for graphic violence, and strong sexual content in overexposed video stylization, I will show that female characters evolve from the older sexualized and objectified females of gladiatorial Sword and Sandals (e.g. Warrior and the Slave Girl: 1958) to strong and brave action heroines. Finally, I will discuss how the 2010- TV series reflects upon the impact of equality and feminism in the portrayal of the ancient world in our contemporary popular culture.

    Material Girls: Humor and Female Professional Seduction in Greek Literature and Culture2014Ingår i: Eugesta: Journal of Gender Studies in Antiquity, ISSN 2156-2253, Vol. 4Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Current scholarship typically views the ancient Greek prostitute/ courtesan figure as an artificially manipulated, sexualized body motivated by material profit. By examining fragments of Middle Comedy and their echoes in post-classical antiquity, this article proposes an alternative view of courtesans and prostitutes as professionals of emotional labor. Through narrative analysis, I show that the Greek comic portrayal of courtesans is multifaceted and not sufficiently illuminated by discussions of their subjectivity, aesthetic modifications, and greed but also extends to the realm of their emotions. Intersecting gender and humor theories with the concept of Emotional Labor (Hochschild 1983), I then argue that these figures can be seen to comically modify their appearance and behavior in order to reflect contemporary ideological and cultural standards of female sexual conduct. Viewing humor as a communicative tool for social hierarchies consequently facilitates a more complex analysis of attitudes towards the commercialization of bodies and emotions in Greek literature and culture.

    Remixing Classics for the Screen: Woody Allen and the Classical Tradition2015Ingår i: Studia Oliveriana, ISSN 0562-2964, Vol. 1, s. 55-76Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Several films by Woody Allen (Interiors, Oedipus Wrecks, Match Point and Mighty Aphrodite) contain elements of classical tradition that have been neglected or oversimplified by film scholarship as references to the director’s personal engagement with psychoanalysis. Using Mighty Aphrodite (1995) as illustration, I argue that these films convey the expression of contemporary social issues through a complex and multi-layered reception of classical culture that goes beyond pure psychoanalysis. In Mighty Aphrodite, specifically, Allen deploys the strict formalism of tragedy and the myth of Oedipus as film mechanisms for contemporary societal discourse. Via evaluation of film and narrative, I demonstrate that Allen’s classical reception is self-reflexive as it refers back to the very processes of performative arts. Furthermore, Allen utilizes the classical tradition as a form of expression in contemporary classical Hollywood narratives and creates a rich cultural experience for his audience; a cinematic treatise on cultural remix, dramatic formalism and classical reception per se.

    Mapping socio-ecological landscapes: geovisualization as method2021Ingår i: Routledge international handbook of research methods in digital humanities / [ed] Kristen Schuster and Stuart Dunn, Oxon & New York: Routledge, 2021, s. 203-217Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Geovisualization, here perceived broadly as a representation of data on a digital map, has been used within a number of disciplines for different purposes: from creating new knowledge to sharing existing scholarly ideas. This chapter focuses on how building maps conceptually and with specific research questions in mind often requires a set of fresh methodologies. Methodologies ought to be tailored to conceptual research questions and existing limitations set by data, as well as aggregation, and visualization software. Through an analysis of three case studies spanning the disciplines of archaeology, linguistics and ethnology, classics and media studies, we identify a number of methodological choices and limitations for geovisualization set by available fragmented historical data, digital platforms for data aggregation, and visualization software. We then highlight two issues that are open for further development, more specifically 1) the complexities of representing multiple temporal data in one single mapping interface, as well as 2) the need for common global vocabularies and ontologies that provide us with the possibilities of linking common references.

    Digital Archaeology? Greece on Focus: Tools, methodologies and trends2017Övrigt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Archaeology is an interdisciplinary science, as it is a scholarly study of past processes that often combines space, place, natural science, materials and texts in its interpretation. Presently, the majority of practicing archaeologists include digital tools in their work (e.g. data keeping, digital mapping, visualization tools). And recently, digital visualization is trending beyond 3D modelling and landscape reconstruction and into the interactive, scientific visualization of data in order to render relations between geographies and cultures, sensory properties (Betts 2011, Betts 2017, Foka and Arvidsson 2016), external /internal networks and aerial visualizations. On an international level, we have come to speak of the notion of “cyber-archaeology” (Forte 2015): archaeological methods that utilize participatory technology to interact with past artefacts and spaces and to understand the past through reflection and cooperative efforts. Current digital tools and methodologies help capture and display knowledge about the past. While there is considerable room for improvement, both in terms of tools and of methodologies, from composing plain databases to visualizations intended for wider museum audiences, we address here the current progress within Greek archaeological practice and emphasize the importance of sustainable and updated digital research infrastructures in order to enhance access to materials for researchers and laypeople alike.

    Human bones tell the story of atmospheric mercury and lead exposure at the edge of Roman World2020Ingår i: Science of the Total Environment, ISSN 0048-9697, E-ISSN 1879-1026, Vol. 710, artikel-id 136319Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Atmospheric metal pollution is a major health concern whose roots pre-date industrialization. This study pertains the analyses of ancient human skeletons and compares them with natural archives to trace historical environmental exposure at the edge of the Roman Empire in NW Iberia The novelty of our approach relies on the combination of mercury, lead and lead isotopes. We found over a 700-year period that rural Romans incorporated two times more mercury and lead into their bones than post-Romans inhabiting the same site, independent of sex or age. Atmospheric pollution sources contributed on average 57% (peaking at 85%) of the total lead incorporated into the bones in Roman times, which decreased to 24% after the decline of Rome. These values and accompanying changes in lead isotopic composition mirror changes in atmospheric Pb deposition recorded in local peatlands. Thus, skeletons are a time-transgressive archive reflecting contaminant exposure.

    MUSTEL: Framing the Design of Technology-Enhanced Learning Activities for Museum Visitors2007Ingår i: International Cultural Heritage Informatics Meeting - ICHIM07: Proceedings, Archives & Museum Informatics, 2007Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we discuss our emerging approach to museum learning involving the use of new technologies in museums. Our approach is shaped by the experiences of the multidisciplinary EU Kaleidoscope MUSTEL team (Museums and Technology Enhanced Learning), which includes researchers with experience in art history, cultural studies, IT development, interaction design, education and learning sciences, and social science. The outline framework is grounded in a Vygotskian sociocultural approach and Leonte'v's activity concept, and has been employed in a number of design interventions in museum contexts by MUSTEL members in recent years. The group is currently engaged in collating their experiences and insights concerning the design of ICTs for museums. Several examples of our work on augmenting visitors' activities in museums through the use of ICTs are presented and discussed. These examples focus on the integration of ICTs in exhibition design, and on the design and implementation of mobile devices in art museums.

    Protean Tarpeia2017Ingår i: Classical Review, ISSN 0009-840X, E-ISSN 1464-3561, Vol. 67, nr 1, s. 189-191Artikel, recension (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Quicksilver Tarpeia darts and flits across the pages of this immensely learned volume, her form and myth protean. From Fabius Pictor’s greedy girl to Plutarch’s multifarious figure, Welch (W.) traces instantiations of the Tarpeia myth (TM) in text, silver, and stone, revealing that these tellings are fundamentally about belonging in and under Rome. The volume comprises an introduction and initial background chapter, nine chapters in three parts, a brief conclusion, an appendix of ‘treasonous girls’, and closes with two indexes (locorum and general). The three parts, ‘Tarpeia, Ethnicity, and Being Roman in the Republic’, ‘Tarpeia and the Caesars: From Republic to Empire’ and ‘Tarpeia from the Outside In: Greek Sources and the Roman Empire’, map the shifting contours of the TM from the late third century BCE to the mid-second century CE. Throughout, W. underlines the powerful flexibility and utility of the TM for the teller, marking the ways in which it spoke variously to ancient ‘ethics, gender, ethnicity, political authority, language, conquest, and tradition’ (p. 285). This volume, appropriate for readers who are advanced undergraduates or beyond, evolved from W.’s doctoral research on Propertius (p. xi), and is itself a monumentum to Tarpeia. It will serve henceforth as a foundational text on Tarpeia and her myth, augmenting G. Dumézil’s Tarpeia: Essais de philologie comparative indo-européene [1947], Z. Gansiniec’s Tarpeia: The Making of a Myth [1949], and A. Semioli’s Tarpeia e la presenza Sabina di Roma arcaica [2010]. By ensuring that each chapter of the volume is self-contained, W. has written this volume in such a way that readers can pick and choose, but only a complete reading will reveal Tarpeia’s variegated life in Greco-Roman antiquity.

    Shame transfigured: Slut-shaming from Rome to cyberspace2015Ingår i: First Monday, E-ISSN 1396-0466, Vol. 20, nr 4Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Slut-shaming, the public exposure and shaming of individuals for their (perceived or actual) sexual behavior, is rife on the Internet; it primarily affects women, and it too often has tragic outcomes. Slut-shaming is not new, but a form of cultural suppression of female sexuality that has been practiced since antiquity. In this paper, I historicize this phenomenon, by comparing and contrasting cases of slut-shaming from the Roman Republic with recent cases on the Internet, and I maintain that the focus of this slut-shaming, namely sexual virtue, has remained the same over time, but that the unregulated nature of the Internet has increased its scope and impact. A central contention of this paper is that women have been complicit in this slut-shaming; they have shamed other women for their sexual behavior, and have done so because it conferred social benefits on them. We will see that men and women have used the Internet to perpetuate and maintain the cultural suppression of female sexuality, and expose women to increased scrutiny over their sexual behavior.
