Short description:

The archeology of the emerging historical people of Central Europe in the last millenium BC, Celts, Skythians and Etruscans.

Full description:

Celts Scythians and Etruscans emerge as political social and ideological groupings, in historical and archaeological records beginning at the turn of the first millennium BC. These „ethnic” groups who speak languages distinguishing them from each other and their neighbours all react to the spread of Mediterranean civilisation as disseminated by the Greeks in distinct ways which sometimes resemble each other but can also be radically different. All three groupings integrate Mediterranian artefacts into their ostentatious life- and death-ways during the 8th to 5th centuries BC. But while the Etruscans become completely integrated into the civilized world and the Celts acculturate by adopting a selected range of Mediterranian lifeways into their societies while maintaining their „barbaric” Identity. The Scythians retain their radically different nomadic lifestyle. This lecture will offer students an archaeological and historical summary of the development of these European peoples in the first millennium and will concentrate on the emergence and development of the distinct and beautiful art and decor which results in the interactions between them and the Greek Polis civilisation and Levantine empires.
