ROOTS Public Lecture: Pavlos Avramidis

Jul 06, 2022 from 05:15 PM to 06:30 PM

Kiel University, Leibnizstr. 1, 24118 Kiel, Rm. 105

"Holocene Coastal Depositional Environments – Important Geoarchives and Endangered Environmental areas. Case studies from western Greece"

Talk by Johanna-Mestorf-Chair: Prof. Pavlos Avramidis,University of Patras, Rio, Greece


Pavlos Avramidis

Abstract:

Coastal areas constitute dynamic depositional environments which are shaped by the interaction of tectonic activity, sea level change and diverse environmetal factors related to human activities. Coastal palaeonvironmental changes in the Mediterranean region during the Holocene are fundamental parameter that influences present and past societies. Lagoons constitute important archives for the study of Holocene palaeoenvironmental changes and several proxies have been imployed to reconstruct shoreline dislocation, sea level and palaeoclimatic changes as well as geomorphological changes. In this presentation three coastal case studies from western Greece will be presented: (a) Zakynthos island, (b) Etoliko lagoon and (c) Gialova lagoon, under the prism of palaeoenviromental evolution and environmental sedimentology.

Archaeological Colloquium: „Rethinking Domestication: Seed-dispersal-based mutualisms“

May 02, 2022 from 06:30 PM to 08:30 PM

Hybrid event

Dr. Robert Spengler • Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, Jena.

When thinking about plant domestication, most of us immediately think about ancient
sickle harvesting and seed sowing, as leading to tough rachises in wheat and barley, but the other seed dispersal properties in crop progenitors are rarely discussed. The first steps toward domestication are evolutionary responses for the recruitment of humans as dispersers. Plants that evolved traits to support human-mediated seed dispersal express greater fitness in increasingly anthropogenic ecosystems. The loss of dormancy, reduction in seed coat thickness, increased seed size, pericarp density, and sugar concentration all led to more focused seed dispersal through seed saving and sowing. I argue that a better understanding of these early steps in the long domestication process can be clarified by looking at the ways plants and animals evolve in the wild. In this talk, I will explore some of these ideas in relation to plant domestication and look at case studies from the Silk Road trade routes that led to both the dispersal and the domestication of certain plants. Humans are the most successful seed dispersers on the planet, and plants evolve in response to mutualistic relationships for seed dispersal.

"Scales of Interaction. Quantity and Quality of Encounters amongst Northern Foragers"
While it is generally acknowledged that most hunter-gatherers live in small groups, notably emphasized by anthropologist Nurit Bird-David (2017), it has recently been pointed out that they may still draw on a quantitatively large social and cultural network (Bird et al. 2019). Here it will be argued that the quality and intensity of interactions may be of greater importance for the impact than the sheer number of contacts. This argument builds on insights from archaeological and anthropological studies of the transmission of technology and of the sharing of such practices. Insights from a multi-scalar study of mid-Holocene foragers in northern Norway illustrates that interaction occurred at several different scales, both spatially and numerically. Through the interpretation of the regularity, frequency and intensity of social and practical interaction it is suggested that although the majority of the time was spent in small and intimate residential units, the assumed flexibility in the composition of these, frequent relocations and regular aggregations led to quantitatively extensive networks. Nevertheless, any transmission of knowledge and skills would have depended on individual interaction over an extended period and the involvement of active practical tasks. It is furthermore argued that to comprehend the dynamics of interaction and transmission also in small scale societies we must consider their heterogenous composition and diversity. Only by envisioning the past as populated by actors of different gender, ages and capacities may we understand the dynamics and complexity of interactions.

"Can We Identify Early Warning Signs of Collapse or Transformation in Social Systems? Some Affirmative Evidence from Pueblo Societies"
For some three decades ecologists and systems thinkers such as Stephen Carpenter, Carl Folke and Marten Scheffer have been arguing that ecosystems may suddenly “flip” from one behavior to another, such as when temperate lakes switch from a clear-water to a turbid-water regime rather than undergoing slow, incremental change. More recently there have also been suggestions that some of these ecosystems may exhibit early warning signals of impending regime shifts. For a decade or more there have also been attempts (including by some archaeologists) to broaden this logic to include social systems. In my opinion these attempts have not been very convincing. Here I report what is possibly (though I’m an interested party) the best evidence to data from the archaeological record in favor of the ideas that (1) these social regime shifts exist; (2) they exhibit early signals of the expected sorts; and from these two findings we can infer that (3) slow internal developments apparently sometimes made theses societies less resilient over time, setting them up for collapse or transformation. These ideas are illustrated by reference to the Pueblo history of southwestern North America from 500 – 1300 CE.

Workshop: "Soothing Gardens: Ancient ideas and practices about plants, natural environments and well-being" (organised by C. Thumiger and D. Zentgraf)

May 12, 2021 from 01:30 PM to 06:00 PM

Virtual

Workshop: "Soothing Gardens: Ancient ideas and practices about plants, natural environments and well-being". The workshop is organised by Chiara Thumiger and Dana Zentgraf in the framework of the ROOTS Research Group "Gardens, Human Senses and Eudaimonia".

Abstract: This workshop aims at discussing gardens in ancient (mostly Greco-Roman) culture and practices, with particular attention to ideals of well-being and therapy, and focusing on concrete experiences and activities, from the subjectivity of sensorial experience (smelling, seeing and hearing in the pleasures a garden offers) to material aspects (e.g. recipes, ingredient trade and availability).

Talk by DAAD Fellowship Sébastian Plutniak

Oct 22, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Talk 'Fragmentation, layers admixture, and refitting: a methodological attempt to bind the discrete and fuzzy aspects of archaeological knowledge'

Sébastien Plutniak who is currently DAAD fellow in Kiel, will give a talk on his recent work. We plan to a physical talk in Leibnizstraße and a BBB stream. Please let us know beforehand, if you would like to participate physically. The talk will be streamed on Big Blue Bottom.
 

Abstract:
The determination of spatial discrete units (e.g. stratigraphical layers, "structures") inside the mass of larger entities (e.g. the "site") is one of the crucial steps of any archaeological investigation. However, the boundaries of such entities are fuzzy. Consequently, stabilising their definition generally relies on an agreement among archaeologists, based on the cross-examination of multiple aspects (direct observation, artefacts distribution, soil chemistry, geoarcheology, etc.). The study of the relationships between fragments of objects which are parts of the same original object ("refitting") has a particular status to this regard: it enables one of the most (if not the most) certain reconstruction of past states of the world which are possible in archeology. Based on this assumption, the first step of this research requires a close  examination of the available methods for "refitting" analysis. This led to the development of a new way to model the relationships between fragments, which first application concerns the measurement of the admixture of two spatial units (e.g. layers). This approach was implemented into the "archeofrag" R package, which will be the basis for this presentation. While focusing on methodological aspects, their conceptual and theoretical implications will also be suggested.
