ANE 2: A DISCUSSION LIST FOR THE STUDY OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST A successor to the Ancient Near East Discussion List originally hosted by the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago. ANE 2 is a moderated academic discussion list that focuses on topics and issues of interest in Ancient Near Eastern Studies, from the Indus to the Nile, and from the beginnings of human habitation to the rise of Islam. It is intended to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on these topics between and among scholars and students actively engaged in research and study of the Ancient Near East. Active (on-list) participation in ANE 2 assumes an informed knowledge of the ancient Near East and adherence to List Protocols (which are available at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ANE-2/files/ANE%202%20Protocols and are sent to each new subscriber upon approval of subscription application). The act of subscribing to the list signifies the agreement of the subscriber to follow these protocols and to accept the adjudications of the Moderators. ANE 2 is international in scope. List Members should expect to be able to read postings in English, French and German. Participants are free to post in any of these languages, and, upon occasion, in other languages used in the study of the Ancient Near East. Moderators: Trudy S. Kawami, Ph.D., Columbia University Art History & Archaeology, Director of Research, Arthur M. Sackler Foundation; N. P. Lemche, Professor Dr.Theol., Department of Biblical Exegesis, The University of Copenhagen; Marc Cooper, Missouri State University, Department of History; Robert Whiting, University of Helsinki; Charles E. Jones, Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, New York University; Jeffrey B. Gibson, D.Phil. (Oxon)
Στο Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Θεσσαλονίκης εκτίθενται ευρήματα κυρίως από την περιοχή της Θεσσαλονίκης και των γειτονικών νομών και παρουσιάζεται συνολικά ο πολιτισμός της Μακεδονίας από τα προϊστορικά χρόνια μέχρι την ύστερη αρχαιότητα. Το κτίριο του Μουσείου, σχεδιασμένο από τον αρχιτέκτονα Πάτροκλο Καραντινό, εγκαινιάστηκε το 1962 και αποτελεί σημαντικό δείγμα του μοντέρνου κινήματος της αρχιτεκτονικής στην Ελλάδα.
The Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) is North America's oldest and largest organization devoted to the world of archaeology. The Institute is a nonprofit group founded in 1879 and chartered by the United States Congress in 1906.
The mission of the Archaeological Research Facility (ARF) is to encourage and carry out archaeological field and laboratory research conducted by U.C. Berkeley archaeologists and related specialists. As a field of research, archaeology is inherently interdisciplinary and collaborative; not only are there intimate research collaborations among natural scientists, social scientists and/or humanities scholars, but archaeology is practiced by scholars who expectedly hold faculty and/or research positions in a variety of departments, ranging from Classics to Earth and Planetary Science.
An independent learned society, the Archaeological Society assists the Greek State in its work of protecting, improving and studying Greek antiquities. Whenever necessary, it undertakes the management and execution of large projects: this has happened with the excavations in Macedonia and Thrace in recent years and with the large-scale restoration projects in the past. An important part of the Society's work is its publishing. It brings out three annual titles: Praktika tes Archaiologikes Hetairias (Proceedings of the Archaeological Society), since 1837, containing detailed reports on the excavations and researches carried out in all parts of Greece; Archaiologike Ephemeris (since 1837), containing papers on subjects to do with Greek antiquities, including excavation reports; and Ergon tes Archaiologikes Hetairias (The Work of the Archaeological Society), since 1955, published every May, with brief reports on its excavations.
The Archaeology Program at Cornell University is an interdisciplinary field that offers one of the few majors in Archaeology available in the United States today. Faculty members affiliated with several departments coordinate Archaeology course offerings and help students identify archaeology-related opportunities for fieldwork, graduate study, and professional positions.
The MA Program in Archaeology at Cornell is designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of students -- in fact, it is for all promising students with a baccalaureate or equivalent degree and a serious interest in studying archaeology. Although applicants with little formal training in archaeology are considered, successful applicants often have completed significant course work and have some field and/or museum experience. Typical applicants intend to pursue archaeological careers in small museums, historic preservation, public archaeology, and other fields in which a Ph.D. is not required. Still others are foreign students who seek training not available in their home countries. We particularly encourage applicants from the countries in which Cornell archaeologists are active. The fields of Anthropology, Classics, History of Art, Medieval Studies, and Near Eastern Studies all provide for a specialization in archaeology at the Ph.D. level, and potential master's candidates are discouraged from applying. For this reason we have set up a separate MA degree program in archaeology. Admission to this program is, however not a commitment for later admission to any Ph.D. program, although internal transfers sometimes are permitted for qualified applicants.
The Archaeology Program at UNCG introduces students to past civilizations and cultures around the globe and to the analytical methods, techniques, and theories that archaeologists use to facilitate their study. The major is designed to develop anthropological, historical, and geographical perspectives in archaeological research, encompassing prehistoric and early historic cultures. The Program's faculty is actively involved in research and/or fieldwork in the Mediterranean region, the Middle East, North America and South America, and students participate in these or other field work projects in addition to meeting classroom requirements. Graduates of the Program are prepared for advanced training in archaeology and museum studies; cultural resource management; team leading in a variety of settings; and other professions for which critical thinking and good communication skills are necessary.
