Archaeological Colloquium: Bringt dat Watt? Interdisziplinäre Forschungen im Nordfriesischen Wattenmeer (Dr. Ruth Blankenfeldt, Schleswig)

Nov 28, 2022 from 06:30 PM to 08:30 PM

Institut für Ur- und Frühgeschichte, Johanna-Mestorf-Hörsaal, Johanna-Mestorf-Str. 2–6 (Eingang 4, Erdgeschoss, R. 28), 24118 Kiel

Das Institut für Ur- und Frühgeschichte, Kiel, lädt im Rahmen des Archäologischen Kolloquiums im Wintersemester 2022/23 zu folgendem Vortrag mit anschließender Diskussion ein:

Dr. Ruth Blankenfeldt, Schleswig, 
spricht zum Thema: 
Bringt dat Watt?
Interdisziplinäre Forschungen im Nordfriesischen Wattenmeer 
Das nordfriesische Wattenmeer, heute als Nationalpark und UNESCO-Weltnaturerbe geschützt, unterliegt durch Umwelteinflüsse seit Jahrtausenden einem ständigen Wandel. Zudem griff der Mensch spätestens ab dem Mittelalter intensiv in die Gestaltung der Landschaft mit ein. Nach verheerenden Fluten konnten zwar manche Areale wieder zurückgewonnen werden. Viele Warften und landwirtschaftliche Nutzflächen versanken dagegen für immer im Meer, sind aber in ihren Resten unter der heutigen Oberfläche des Wattenmeeres erhalten. 
Ein aktuelles, DFG-teilfinanziertes Forschungsprojekt kombiniert nun erstmals geophysikalische, geoarchäologisch und archäologische Methoden zur Untersuchung ausgewählter Bereiche im nordfriesischen Wattenmeer. Ziel ist die systematische Erfassung und Dokumentation der hier untergegangenen Kulturlandschaft.

Veranstaltungsort:
Institut für Ur- und Frühgeschichte, Johanna-Mestorf-Hörsaal,
Johanna-Mestorf-Str. 2–6 (Eingang 4, Erdgeschoss,R. 28),

Social Inequality Forum

Nov 29, 2022 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Room 123, Leibnizstr. 3, 24118 Kiel

Pawel Cembrzynski: "Inequality in medieval towns and how to find it."

 

Abstract:

A medieval town was inhabited by a whole spectrum of people with a different social backgrounds like patricians, artisans, clergy, noble and poor. It was characterised by different levels of inequality of wealth and status. This talk will show the possibilities of tracing such inequality in medieval towns.

A common way to study wealth inequality is through tax registers, property value and wages. Additionally, sociotopographic approach studies the spatial distribution of wealth and property values in a town. Nevertheless, the perspective given by written records has specific flows as it concerns mostly well-situated upper classes of urban society. The question is if a more nuanced picture of inequality can be seen through the material culture and structure of the built environment. Medieval urban archaeology approaches the issue of inequality, looking mainly at luxury and quality of life. Luxurious objects are those that are known to be expensive, rare or hard to get. Such artefacts need to be analysed within the local context. The quality and quantity of material culture found on urban plots can show the inhabitants' potential wealth and status. The more diversified this culture is, the more wealthy the owners might be. The study of quality of life in medieval archaeology goes a step further. It looks not only at portable artefacts but also at the quality of housing (construction, material, heating, light, decoration etc.), access to water supply and waste disposal as well localisation. Despite this positivistic view, the biggest challenge is understanding the depositional and post-depositional processes. The reason why artefacts ended in an archaeological context and not always clear and can blur our understanding of medieval inequality.

Workshop on Environmental conditions in prehistory (c. 10,000 BP - present) - ecology, carrying capacity, and the landscape: integrating regional models and developing global databases

Dec 09, 2022 from 09:00 AM to 06:00 PM

Seminarraum 105 a+b, Leibnizstraße 1, 24118 Kiel

Workshop on "Environmental conditions in prehistory (c. 10,000 BP - present) - ecology, carrying capacity, and the landscape: integrating regional models and developing global databases".

Organizers: Oliver Nakoinz, Søren Wichmann, Laurenz Hillmann

Short description:

The modeling of past environments and demography is of importance to the understanding of past societies in archaeology and social science. In order to develop simulation models some basic environmental parameters are often needed. Moreover, spatial distributional analyses of archaeological may extract explanatory variables from environmental datasets. However, heterogenic data availability, different approaches, and the increasingly growing magnitude of data make comparative work difficult. Pertinent questions range from what data is most suitable for different time frames, what methods can be used in local and global research areas, and what are the minimally necessary environmental components of simulation models for prehistory. These are some of the questions that we would like to address during this one-day workshop. Its purpose is to generate ideas, to develop a good understanding of what comparative data is available globally for the study of prehistory and how it may be integrated, as well as to stimulate future collaboration.
