Is it possible to trace the footprints of the historical Sokrates in Athens? Was there really an individual named Romulus, and if so, when did he found Rome? Is the tomb beneath the high altar of St. Peter’s Basilica home to the apostle Peter? To answer these questions, we need both dirt and words—that is, archaeology and history. Bringing the two fields into conversation, Artifact and Artifice offers an exciting excursion into the relationship between ancient history and archaeology and reveals the possibilities and limitations of using archaeological evidence in writing about the past. Jonathan M. Hall employs a series of well-known cases to investigate how historians may ignore or minimize material evidence that contributes to our knowledge of antiquity unless it correlates with information gleaned from texts. Dismantling the myth that archaeological evidence cannot impart information on its own, he illuminates the methodological and political principles at stake in using such evidence and describes how the disciplines of history and classical archaeology may be enlisted to work together. He also provides a brief sketch of how the discipline of classical archaeology evolved and considers its present and future role in historical approaches to antiquity. Written in clear prose and packed with maps, photos, and drawings, Artifact and Artifice will be an essential book for undergraduates in the humanities.

Since its founding in 2001, Dermot Foley Landscape Architects has developed a wide variety of successful projects from an impressive list of clients, contributing its own distinctive voice to the rapidly evolving Irish and international landscape. This beautifully designed hardback volume celebrates ten years of Dermot Foley by reflecting on some of the most emblematic projects developed by its vibrant team, but even more poignantly, by unveiling the practice's underlying design ethic. Artifice is therefore more ambitious than a general catalogue of work, it presents rather, an analysis of the ideas and themes that have emerged through the collective interactions between Dermot Foley's varied team of architects, designers, urban planners and horticulturists, and which have informed Dermot Foley's projects to date. This volume reflects on the holistic approach to landscape design that has been at the basis of the practice's projects. Essays by theorists and practitioners such as Krystallia Kamvasinou, Simon Canz and Dermot Foley himself, provide expert reflections on the practice's approach to landscape as well as its impact on the nature and future development of the Irish, and international, built environment.

Back cover: "Deacon is a prototype android soldier so advanced he is referred to as an 'artificial person'. On his first extended mission, Deacon was ordered by his corporate masters to eliminate a team of scientists who knew too much--and he has failed spectacularly. Not only did he let one of his targets live, he attacked the team sent to retrieve him. Now the Corporation wants answers and they bring in the brilliant robopsychologist Dr. Clarice Maven to get them, giving her the power to make sure Deacon never fails the Corporation ever again. As the doctor cuts through his defenses, Deacon is forced to reveal the shocking events that took place on Da Vinci Four. He disobeyed orders. He murdered corporate workers. And yet he insists that his actions are those of a good soldier! Somehow Deacon's relationship with the sole survivor, 19-year-old outcast Jeff Linnell, is behind it all and Dr. Maven will stop at nothing to learn the whole truth. Deacon is clearly protecting something, but what chance does he have in fighting an adversary who can control his every move? With scenes of tense action and surprisingly tender romance, Artifice is a thoughtful and provocative science-fiction story that both women and men will enjoy."
