Finding the Walls of Troy

. . . This book presents both new and little-known material and is fascinating in its treatment of Calvert and Schliemann.

Finding the Walls of Troy

The discovery of the ancient city of Troy has long been attributed to the relentlessly self-promoting archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann. Now, Susan Heuck Allen sets the record straight and gives a good portion of the credit to Frank Calvert, the first archaeologist to test the hypothesis that Hisarlik in Asia Minor was the Troy of Homer's "Iliad". 55 illustrations. 4 maps.

Geschichtsdeutung auf alten Karten

Geschichtsdeutungen" auf und mit alten Karten sind Gegenstand der 22 Beitrage des Bandes. Es geht um "kartographische Reprasentation" als Mittel zur Gestaltung geschichtlichen Bewusstseins sowie die kartographische Erfassbarkeit von Geschichte, und zwar kartentypisch nicht auf die Geschichte der Kartographie oder thematische Karten beschrankt. So wurden Karten einbezogen, die manchem naturwissenschaftlich gepragten Geographen oder Kartographen in der Tradition von Aufklarung und Rationalismus fremd und paradox erscheinen mogen, wie die sogenannten "TOKarten", die in ihrer eigenen Weise die Okumene symbolisieren als den Raum, in dem sich Geschichte vollzieht. Funf Themenbereiche gliedern die Untersuchungen: 1. Signa und Imagines unterschiedlicher Weltsichten2. Neue Weltbilder mit tradierten Weltdeutungen?3. Geschichtskartographisches4. Versunkene Welten5. Welterfassung im Dienste herrschaftlicher Instrumentalisierung.
