Eugen von Boch (1809-98), eigentlich Steingutfabrikant zu Mettlach, stellt auch einen herausragenden Akteur auf dem Gebiet der Altertumswissenschaften im 19.Jh. dar. Neben seinem Anspruch, eine keramische Universalsammlung aller Epochen und Regionen zu schaffen, machte seine Leidenschaft für die Antike ihn zu einem Pionier der Archäologie in Deutschland, die sich in eigenen Grabungen und spektakulären Funden zeigte. Doch das archäologische Interesse motivierte nicht nur zum Sammeln, Suchen und Bewahren, es inspirierte Boch auch zu künstlerischer Betätigung und zeigte sich in der industriellen Produktion seines Unternehmens. Dieses Buch ist die erste umfassende Darstellung der Antikensammlung Eugen von Bochs und dessen archäologischen Lebenswerks. Es bietet zudem einen Einblick in die Kultur- und Geistesgeschichte des 19. Jahrhunderts und lädt ein zu einer Entdeckungsreise durch das Forschungsfeld Archäologie zur Zeit ihrer großen Pioniere.

The analysis of stable isotope ratios of carbon and nitrogen in bone collagen provides a powerful tool for reconstructing past diets, since it provides the only direct evidence of the foods that were actually consumed. The chapters that comprise this volume describe the application of this methodology to the archaeology of Greece, a country whose archaeobotanical remains have been isotopically studied more extensively than any other place in the world. The archaeological issues that can be addressed using stable isotope methods include the importance of fishing; the possible early introduction of millet; the nature of childrearing including weaning age and weaning foods; temporal shifts in protein consumption; differential access to certain foods associated with social status as well as gender and age; and cultural differences in dietary patterns. Additionally, diet is strongly correlated with health or stress markers in the teeth and bones. Knowing what people ate has vital implications for our understanding of past environments and economies, subsistence strategies, and nutrition.

This study focuses on the "saucer pyres, " a series of 70 deposits excavated in the residential and industrial areas bordering the Athenian Agora. Each consisted of a shallow pit, its floor sometimes marked by heavy burning, with a votive deposit of pottery and fragments of burnt bone, ash, and charcoal. Most of the pots were miniatures (including the eponymous saucers) but a few larger vessels were found, along with offerings associated with funerary cult. The deposits represent a largely Athenian phenomenon, with few parallels elsewherre. When first found in the 1930s, the deposits were interpreted as baby burials. Recent zooarchaeological analysis of the bones, however, reveals that they are the remains of sheep and goats, and that the deposits were sacrificial rather than funerary. The present study investigates the nature of those sacrifices, taking into account the contents of the pyres, their spatial distribution, and their relationship to buildings around the Agora and elsewhere. In light of a strong correlation between pyres and industrial activity, the author argues that the pyres document workplace rituals designed to protect artisans and their enterprises.
