Extractions: 83 Archaeological evidence. The Skuldelev ships provide a convenient starting point for the Norse merchant ship in the early middle ages. Other archaeological evidence for this period is scanty. Excavations into the medieval harbour at Bryggen, the old harbour of Bergen, in 1960 revealed the remains of ships timbers reused as revetments. Some of these were very substantial, suggesting a very large Nordic ship of approximately 30 feet in the beam by over 80 feet in length, dated to the mid thirteenth century. The Bryggen finds suggested that Nordic shipbuilders were capable of producing substantial ships which might have competed with the more commonly known cog. Other finds of merchant ships include the 8th century Askekarr ship from Gothenburg, the 1200 AD Asker ship from Oslo, a variety of Nordic type ships on the Polish coast at Charbrow, Danzig, Szcecin, and at Hedeby (Haithabu) on the German/Danish coast and in the Zuider Zee (cf Bass for references, expand on these). The best documented of the medieval Nordic ships is the Kalmar boat from Sweden. The site picture shows the cross beams and vertical knees which have been noted in earlier ships, together with internal stringers. The Kalmar boat is dated to the C13th and reconstructions suggest new features borrowed from other European generic types

Extractions: By Martijn van Leusen, Sara Champion, Jonathan Lizee and Thomas Plunkett (University of Birmingham Field Archaeology Unit, University of Southampton Department of Adult Education, University of Connecticut Department of Anthropology) In the 1960s and 1970s, archaeologists used computers as engines for the construction and analysis of large data sets. This trend continued into the 1990s but has been supplemented by the use of the Internet for the sharing of pooled data sets and collaborative research projects. Recent development of the World Wide Web (WWW) protocol, with its user-friendly interfaces, offers the potential for construction of dynamic and interactive data sets, hypermedia reports, and artifact type catalogues. This development offers the potential to increase the effectiveness of collaborative works between users at remote locations - taking archaeologists into the Global Village at last -, and it also offers a cost effective means for distributing large data sets and high resolution images which would not be possible using traditional print media. In this paper, we will outline current uses of the World Wide Web and specific archaeological applications which have developed in the past year. These resources have the potential to enhance archaeological research through construction of large distributed data sets, visual databases, and interactive type catalogues. We will propose the setup of a European Archaeology Web (analogous to the ArchNet facility available from the University of Connecticut) which will bundle and promote initiatives currently emerging on institutional, regional, national, or international level in several European countries. Finally, we will outline the technical, financial, psychological and language barriers that such a network will have to overcome.

Extractions: RESCUE ARCHAEOLOGY: COMPROMISE OR OPPORTUNITY? Paul Barford The ephemeral traces of past human activity which form archaeological evidence are a valuable record which can be read in accordance with current archaeological practice to create a vivid picture of multifarious aspects of the lives of our predecessors, and as such form the only record of the story (the hopes, fears, aspirations, successes and failures) of countless generations of inhabitants of individual regions. They are the only way that we can recreate the lives of whole communities, societies and populations of forgotten generations stretching back in an unbroken chain to the first settlers of Europe after the retreat of the glaciers. These traces form their material, tangible, heritage, containing a multitude of messages that can be read into our times from it and forming a major element in the creation of the cultural identity of the peoples of Europe. All historical sources become historiography only by means of the selection and interpretation of the raw facts and their amalgamation into models of the past. With the increase of the quantity and quality of the information (brought about by the introduction of new techniques and research questions), previous models of the past are modified. While the number of known written records of many periods of the past is finite and can never be increased, the archaeological record is capable of revealing new facts (at least while there is still enough well-preserved material in the soil to act as a resource). It is the specific characteristic of the archaeological evidence which gives it a specific character and makes archaeology such an interesting discipline.

Extractions: This guide provides some suggestions for browsing the Memorial Library collection in the field of History. A number of classification systems have been used to organize the materials in the Memorial Library collection. The two main systems used to arrange the European history materials are the "Cutter" and the "Library of Congress" classification systems. Generally, the "Cutter" system was used to assign call numbers to materials added to the collection before 1970. There are approximately 214,000 titles in the "Cutter" collection. The Library of Congress system has been used to assign call numbers to materials added to the collection after 1970.

Orientation Research Report FY 1993 Historical Archaeology Statistical Evaluation of the Lead Isotope Data on Geological Ore Samples from Western and Central Europe Robert Vocke, Research Collaborator, NIST Spanish artifacts excavated in Spain and the New World were reexamined to determine their provenance in relation to the newly determined European ore sources. We decided to trace the origins of the lead used in these 16th century Spanish artifacts to test the validity of the European ore fields and to illustrate the effective use of the lead isotope database. Some of the lead data used in this study were from a previously published study conducted at our laboratory on glaze samples taken from majolica from Spain and from Spanish colonial sites in the New World. The original study successfully demonstrated that majolica produced in Mexico could be distinguished from those produced in Spain and are characteristic of the lead isotopic composition found in Mexican ores.

The department offers direction of research in every period of Irish history, including local history. The Maynooth Libraries have substantial holdings of primary reference material for significant areas of Irish history: proximity to Dublin and the major national repositories such as the National Library and the National Archives makes Maynooth an ideal location for Irish historical research. Among the themes of research are Irish historic settlement, church and society in pre-Norman Ireland, political and religious reform in Tudor Ireland, social, economic and cultural change in the seventeenth century, political thought in the eighteenth century, poverty, emigration and medicine in the nineteenth century, and political mobilisation in modern Ireland. Irish and comparative urban history is a particular research strength, as is Irish migration overseas, especially to continental Europe in the early modern period.

He was born in 1949 in Amsterdam, studied ecological prehistory and physical geography in Amsterdam and wrote his PhD thesis on the use of land evaluation (a form of predictive modelling) in archaeology. In Leiden he teaches archaeological methods and techniques and various courses in computer applications in archaeology. His research is in the field of computer applications in archaeology (predictive modelling, GIS, the use of computers in the field, sampling). In the 1980th, he co-directed the Agro Pontino survey in Italy and he was recently involved in excavations in Geleen (the Netherlands), Boxgrove (England) and in the Vézère valley (France).
