ISBN 9781784914141. 
How can we find alternative, sensorially rich and affective ways of engaging with the material past in the present?

How can photography play a central role in archaeological narratives, beyond representation and documentation?

This photo-book engages with these questions, not through conventional academic discourse but through evocative creative practice. The book is, at the same time, a site guide of sorts: a photographic guide to the archaeological site of the Sanctuary of Poseidon in Kalaureia, on the island of Poros, in Greece.

Ancient and not-so-ancient stones, pine trees that were “wounded” for their resin, people who lived amongst the classical ruins, and the tensions and the clashes with the archaeological apparatus and its regulations, all become palpable, affectively close and immediate.

Furthermore, the book constitutes an indirect but concrete proposal for the adoption of archaeological photo-ethnography as a research as well as public communication tool for critical heritage studies, today.

Hale and Buck: A Latin Grammar

Hale and Buck: A Latin Grammar

Introduction

Hale and Buck's A Latin Grammar was first published by Ginn and Company in 1903. This edition is a collation of the two different versions of the original that I am aware of, hereafter referred to as versions A and B.

Editorial practices

Throughout I have tried to emulate the typographical conventions of the original fairly closely, but I have not hesitated to depart from them where convenient. Most such changes can pass without comment, but one perhaps requires some justification. In the original, there are many instances of paragraphs that are set in a smaller type than the main text, for example, 269 a and 270 a, b. An examination of the changes made in version B reveals that many of them are similarly reduced in size, which makes me think that most if not all such passages represent changes made in galleys. In other words, I believe the smaller typeface was used solely (or at least primarily) in order to make room for late additions to the page rather than to indicate that this material is somehow of less importance. Especially in view of the absence of any indication by the authors that they attach any such meaning to variation in type size, I have not tried to preserve such variations. (It's possible, of course, that the smaller type size does carry meaning in some cases, and there is sufficient variation in style to foster doubt. But if so, I'm unable to distinguish the cases.)

Open Access Monograph Series: Agora Picture Books

Agora Picture Books











The primary purpose of the Agora Picture Book series is to enliven the experience of a visitor to the Athenian Agora, excavated by the American School since 1931. While drawing on the object and monuments that can be viewed on a visit to the site, these well-illustrated guides attempt to add some human color to the dry material remains. A number of the concise guides have become popular supplementary texts for undergraduate and graduate classes in classical civilization. Since 1998 the Picture Books have been published in color.
