Talking Neolithic: Linguistic and Archaeological Perspectives on How Indo-European Was Implemented in Southern ScandinaviaRune Iversen, Guus Kroonen
In this article, we approach the Neolithization of southern Scandinavia from an archaeolinguistic perspective. Farming arrived in Scandinavia with the Funnel Beaker culture by the turn of the fourth millennium B.C.E. It was superseded by the Single Grave culture, which as part of the Corded Ware horizon is a likely vector for the introduction of Indo-European speech.

The figure of Helios driving his chariot into the heavens in the south angle of the east pediment of the Parthenon is underappreciated. After brief reviews of the role of the god in myth, religion, and culture, and of his appearance in Attic vase painting, the article surveys the four (possibly five) Helioi in the Parthenon’s sculptural program.
Cretan Pottery in the Levant in the Fifth and Fourth Centuries B.C.E. and Its Historical ImplicationsAyelet Gilboa, Yiftah Shalev, Gunnar Lehmann, Hans Mommsen, Brice Erickson, Eleni Nodarou, David Ben-ShlomoAvailable as Open Access
Among the painted pottery types in the Levant during the fifth and fourth centuries B.C.E., the “East Greek” class is especially conspicuous and usually assumed to have been produced in Ionia. This pottery is the subject of a comprehensive research project, examining it from typological, analytical, and other perspectives. Our conclusion is that the “East Greek” class comprises in fact several subgroups from various other parts of the Mediterranean.
This article bridges two divergent traditions in the study of Graeco-Roman shipwrecks: analysis of single well-explored sites and growing databases of more cursorily documented wrecks.

In three field seasons, between 2010 and 2012, the Brown University Petra Archaeological Project (BUPAP) conducted a diachronic archaeological survey of the northern hinterland of Petra, Jordan. While regional reconnaissance has a long history in Jordan, it has rarely been conducted with the “intensive” methodologies today characteristic of projects elsewhere, most proximately in the Mediterranean.
