»Sie waren auf dem Land, am Ende der Welt, und es gab kein Zurück.« – Nach dem Tod ihrer Eltern kehren sie für einen Sommer zurück in das alte englische Landhaus: Die vier Geschwister Harriet, Roland, Alice und Fran. Jetzt, in ihren Vierzigern und Fünfzigern, müssen sie entscheiden, ob sie das Haus ihrer Jugend, Erbe ihrer Vergangenheit, bewahren oder verkaufen sollen. Alice, gescheiterte Schauspielerin und unbelehrbare Romantikerin, bringt Kasim, den gerade erwachsenen Sohn ihres Ex-Partners mit, und Roland seine junge Tochter Molly, hübsch und unkonventionell. Sie alle zieht das alte Anwesen in seinen Bann, längst überwunden geglaubte Spannungen lodern wieder auf, und neue erotische Verwicklungen bahnen sich an. Doch auch dieser Sommer geht zu Ende, und über das Haus muss eine Entscheidung getroffen werden.

Pictures are an essential feature of archaeological discourse. The way they are used and their unconsciously made assertions demonstrate important things about ourselves, our theories, our methods, and the way we think. They subtly convey our convictions and view of the world - especially with regards to gender issues. The papers united in this volume highlight the relationship between words and images, thinking and showing, knowledge and assumptions, scholarly thinking and popular images in archaeology They cover two main issues: pictorial representations of archaeology in academic and popular media, and pictures in museums. The authors examine the use of gender in academic publications, TV-documentaries, video games, non-fiction books for children and adolescents, and in archaeological museums in Spain and Germany. The volume is the result of two sessions of gender study in archaeology: 'Images of the Past: Gender and its Representations' during the 20th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists in September 2014 in Istanbul, and 'Gender in Museums', the symposium of the Nordwestdeutscher Verband für Altertumskunde (Northwest German Association for Antiquarian Studies) in September 2013 in Lübeck. This book includes articles in English and in German.

Ästhetik und Konstruktion: das Zusammenwirken von Gestaltung und Technik anhand herausragender Gebäudebeispiele Anlässlich des 50jährigen Jubiläums hat die Redaktion erstmals in einem Band ausgewählte Artikel und Projektbeispiele aus zwei Jahrzehnten zusammengefasst – einem Zeitraum, in dem Verbreitung und Einfluss der Zeitschrift kontinuierlich gewachsen sind, Konzept und Erscheinungsbild beständig weiterentwickelt wurden und in den Jahren 1997 und 98 die behutsame Umstellung von der Hand- zur digitalen Zeichnung erfolgte. Dieser Band veranschaulicht nicht nur die Entwicklung der Zeitschrift selbst, sondern zeichnet kaleidoskopartig auch ein Bild der Architektur der letzten zwei Jahrzehnte, seiner Strömungen und Trends aber auch seiner konstruktiven Eigenheiten und leistet damit nicht zuletzt einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Architekturdiskussion. Wie die Zeitschrift selbst, bietet die Publikation weitreichende Inspirationen und Hilfestellungen für die tägliche Arbeit.

'History is written by the winners' is the received wisdom. This book explains why historical interpretation has to incorporate perspectives from those other than 'winners', and demonstrates archaeology's crucial role in this wide-ranging approach. The book draws more on Africa, Afro-America, Australasia and Oceania than on Europe, the source of the traditionally dominant perspective in archaeology. The four organizing themes of The Politics of the Past are the forms and consequences of the Eurocentric heritage, the conflicting perspectives of rulers and ruled, the significance of administrative and institutional rivalries, and the cleavages that divide professional from popular views of archaeology. Archaeologists, anthropologists, historians and other scholars will find The Politics of the Past illuminating and provocative. It will enrich historical and archaeological inquiry and interpretation, and ramify their relevance for public policy.

Recent years have witnessed a breakdown in consensus about what history should be taught within Canadian schools; there is now a heightened awareness of the political nature of deciding whose history is, or should be, included in social studies and history classrooms. Meanwhile, as educators are debating what history should be taught, developments in educational and cognitive research are expanding our understanding of how best to teach it. To the Past explores some of the political, cultural and educational issues surrounding what history education is, and why we should care about it, in the twenty-first century in Canada. Originally broadcast in the fall of 2002 on the CBC Radio program Ideas, the lectures that comprise this volume not only address how history is taught in Canadian classrooms, but also explore strands within larger discussions about the meaning and purposes of history more generally. Contributors show how Canadians are demonstrating a new interest in what scholars have termed 'historical consciousness' or collective memory, through participation in a wide range of cultural activities, from visiting museums to watching the History Channel. Canadian adults and children alike seem to be seeking answers to questions of identity, meaning, community and nation in their study of the past. Through this series of essays, readers will have the opportunity to explore some of the political and ethical issues involved in this emerging field of Canadian 'citizenship through history' as they learn about public memory and broadly defined history education in Canada.
