9780838639757: Testament Of Time: Selected Objects from the Collections of Palestinian Antiquities of the Museum of Art and Archaeology, University of Missouri--Columbia

This illustrated catalogue presents 190 objects from the Collection of Palestinian Antiquities in the Museum of Art and Archaeology at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Covering the 4th millennium BC to the 8th century AD, the artefacts are presented in ten thematic sections. These cover such subjects as: death and burial in the early Bronze Age; war; the domestic world in the Bronze and Iron Ages; the wider world; religion in the late Bronze and Iron Ages; Hellenistic and Byzantine trade; the villa at Tel Anafa; technology; everyday life in the hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine periods; and pagans, Jews and Christians. Each section begins with a discussion followed by a full description and discussion of the objects themselves, all of which are illustrated. Many types of object are represented including ceramics and lamps, personal implements and tools, religious figurines and carvings, jewellery, bone items, toilet implements, scarabs, armour and weapons, intaglio gems and ossuaries. The book begins with a brief discussion of changing attitudes and practice in the archaeology of the Holy Hand.

Book Description Associated University Presses, United States, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This text illuminates the long history of human activity in the southern Levant and the long-standing connection between the Museum of Art and Archaeology at the University of Missouri-Columbia and the archaeology of the Palestinian region. Under the direction of the Museum s founders, Drs. Saul and Gladys Weinberg, the Museum s own pioneering excavations, particularly at Jamane and Tel Anafa, are also highlighted. The objects detailed here range in date from the fourth millennium B.C.E. to the eighth-century C.E., and encompass 2,500 years of epochs including the Bronze and Iron Ages, as well as Persian, Greek, Roman, and Byzantine influence. The Weinbergs tenure at the museum, followed by that of Dr. Jane Biers, resulted in the acquisition of nearly 900 objects from the Levant, attesting to the much wider scope of these three scholars interests. For the final publication, an impressive roster of additional scholars contributed their expertise to various areas. Illustrated with seventeen color plates and more than two hundred black-and-white photos. Jane Biers is Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at the University of Missouri-Columbia. James Terry is Assistant Professor of Art, Stephens College.
