    Attitudes towards the Past in Antiquity. Creating Identities: Proceedings of an International Conference held at Stockholm University 15-17 May 20092014Conference proceedings (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume brings together twenty-eight papers from an International conference on attitudes towards the past and the creating of identities in Antiquity. The volume addresses many different approaches to these issues, spanning over many centuries, ranging in time from the Prehistoric periods to the Late Antiquity, and covering large areas, from Britain to Greece and Italy and to Asia Minor and Cyprus.

    The papers deal with several important problems, such as the use of tradition and memory in shaping an individual or a collective identity, continuity and/or change and the efforts to connect the past with the present. Among the topics discussed are the interpretation of literary texts, e.g. a play by Plautus, the Aeneid, a speech by Lykurgos, poems by Claudian and Prudentius, and of historical texts and inscriptions, e.g. funerary epigrams, and the analysis of the iconography of Roman coins, Etruscan reliefs, Pompeian and Etruscan frescoes and Cypriote sculpture, and of architectural remains of houses, tombs and temples. Other topics are religious festivals, such as the Lupercalia, foundation myths, the image of the emperor on coins and in literature, the significance of intra-urban burials, forgeries connected with the Trojan War, Hippocrates and Roman martyrs.

    Cutting the Gordion knot: The iconography of Megaron 2 at Gordion2015In: Opuscula: Annual of the Swedish Institutes at Athens and Rome, ISSN 2000-0898, Vol. 8, 85-108 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the incised drawings of Early Phrygian Gordion, and in particular those of Megaton 2. Aspects of their iconographic and archaeological contexts are taken in to consideration, as well as literary sources and especially the story of the Gordian knot. The focus of the study is a series of incised labyrinths, which have hitherto not been recognized as such, but which are of particular interest for the analysis of this building. The myth of Theseus and the Minotaur in the labyrinth helps to throw light on both the images of Megaton 2 but also on the story of the Gordion knot, and how these are interlinked with each other. It is suggested that Ariadne's ball of thread and the Gordian knot are two different expressions of a similar concept; both represent sovereignty provided by a Goddess. Megaron 2 seems to have been a building that was intimately connected with both the king and the Phrygian Mother Goddess.

    The triad from Ephesos: The Mother Goddess and her two companions2014In: Labrys: Studies presented to Pontus Hellström / [ed] Lars Karlsson, Susanne Carlsson, Jesper Blid Kullberg, Uppsala: Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2014, 415-425 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume contains studies on Classical Antiquity presented to Professor Pontus Hellström on his 75th birthday in January 2014. The 41 papers cover subjects ranging from the Etruscans and Rome in the west, to Greece, the landscape of Karia, and to the Sanctuary of Zeus at Labraunda. Many papers deal with new discoveries at Labraunda, but sites in the surrounding area, such as Alabanda, Iasos, and Halikarnassos are well represented, as well as Ephesos and Smyrna. Many architectural studies are included, and these examine both Labraundan buildings and topics such as masonry, Vitruvius, the Erechtheion, stoas, watermills, and Lelegian houses. Other papers deal with ancient coins, ancient music, Greek meatballs, and Karian theories on the origin of ancient Greece.

    Labraunda in late antiquity c. 300-600 A.D.2010Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis presents my work on five late-antique buildings discovered inLabraunda, divided into five parts. Part I discusses the East Church, PartII the recent work at the Tetraconch, Part III the South Thermae, Part IVthe remains of late-antique structures at the Oikoi building and finallyPart V the most recent work at the West Church. The thesis is put togetherfrom six separate articles that have been slightly revised in order to forma continuous text. The first published article New research on CarianLabraunda in late antiquity,1 was mainly a general survey of thelate-antique buildings and architectural marbles excavated at Labraundabetween 1948 and 1960. The section on the Byzantine Church, here called theEast Church (in Part I), was primarily based on my M.A. thesis TheByzantine Church at Labraunda.2 A more detailed architectural analysis onthe East Church was presented in the paper Recent research on the churchesof Labraunda at the 60-year-anniversary symposium of the excavations atLabraunda, held at the Royal Academy of Letters History and Antiquities inStockholm in November of 2008.3 I have published two more articles on theEast Church focusing on the excavations of 2005-2007. The article theByzantine Churches,4 was a descriptive account for the excavation reportbut also with a short note on the restoration work inside the SouthThermae, cf. part 3.1. The article Late-antique glass in sacred context: ahagiasma at Carian Labraunda,5 was an attempt to contextualize the glassfound inside the apse-channel of the East Church; an important find, whichI consider to be the possible genesis of the site as a Christian sanctuary.Part II, deals with the Tetraconch complex from an architectural point ofview, but also the discussion of private establishments in a supposedextra-urban, sanctuary context. It is based on two preliminaryarchaeological reports on the excavations of 2008-2009.6 However, much hasbeen added to this section that has not previously been published. PartsIII and IV, are both mainly based on the first survey of the site in 2006,7but the section on the South Thermae has, as mentioned above, also beensupplemented with the small section on the restoration of 2007. The finalsection, Part V, focuses on the so-called West Church, and is based on thepreliminary archaeological report of 2009.8 Short reports on the marbleambo found in 2007, have been published in several articles.

    Sacred Movement to Labraunda - an Archaeological Perspective2012In: HEROM - Journal on Hellenistic and Roman Material Culture, ISSN 2294-4273, Vol. 1, no 1, 157-195 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sacred movement to the Karian sanctuary of Labraunda in Late Antiquity is here for the first time closely examined. The focus is set on scrutinizing the material remains that emerged from these journeys, and this will be further supplemented by a brief survey of what is known about the equivalent occur- rence in the Imperial period. It is argued that Labraunda's strategic location along the mountain passage between the Mylasa plain and the Karian inland provided safe over-night accommodation and trade opportunities, which consequently stimulated the economy of the sanctuary. Two churches have been excavated immediately outside of the ancient temenoswall, dating from the foundation of Labraunda as a Christian locus sanctus during the early fifth century. The topography of Labraunda with its rich water sources and fertile terraces, along with the eco- nomically fortunate locality, formed an appealing milieu that kept the site's importance also during the Byzantine Middle period.

    Bysans som gränsland i Julia Kristevas roman Murder in Byzantium2009In: Bysantinska sällskapet Bulletin, ISSN 1102-674X, Vol. 27, 5-18 p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the notion of Byzantium and Byzantium’s potential capacities as a multifaceted borderland, as shaped and perceived in Julia Kristeva’s novel Murder in Byzantium. In spite of its title, this is not a historical, but rather a so-called total novel, which reconciles several different plots – romantic, criminal, political and philosophical. It relies on both fictive and historical texts, especially on The Alexiad, written in the 12th  century by the Byzantine princess and the first female historian ever, Anna Comnena. Through a literary analysis, this article shows how Byzantium is shaped in the novel by transgressions of the borders of narration, identity, space and time. Byzantium is thus of great interest to the general public and an academic discussion of borders, origin, history and culture, so important for the discussion of Europe’s role today in – or, as suggested in the novel, perhaps between – Eastern and Western cultures.

    More than a Sensitive Ear: What to Expect of a Professional Expert2014In: Who Needs Experts?: Counter-mapping Cultural Heritage / [ed] John Schofield, Farnham: Ashgate, 2014, 101-112 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The need for dialogue between heritage management and various societal groups is now widely recognized. This is a great improvement which has changed the role of the professional expert. It is no longer sufficient to just have expert knowledge within your scholarly field; you must also be able to conduct a two-way communication with people outside that field who have other interests and priorities. How the heritage management should respond to these different views is however a delicate matter. It is not self-evident that the management best represents the public interest by making the public’s opinion their own. It may, on the contrary, be argued that the professional expert has a particular responsibility to stand up for other values than those that are spontaneously embraced by the public.

    Blood on the altars?: On the treatment of blood at Greek sacrifices and the iconographical evidence2005In: Antike Kunst, Vol. 48, 9-29 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     

    This study discusses the handling and use of blood at Greek sacrifices as depicted in Greek vase-painting. Modern scholars have usually assumed that the blood from the animal victims was completely discarded by pouring it on or at the altar, since the blood belonged to the divine part of the sacrifice. However, a more comprehensive analysis of the literary and epigraphical evidence shows that it is more likely that the blood at regular thysia sacrifices was kept and eaten by the human worshippers.

    The analysis of the iconographical evidence can be taken to further support the suggestion that the blood at Greek animal sacrifices was usually collected, in order to be prepared as food, after a small quantity had been sprinkled on the altar. The main support for this proposal is how and when blood is shown or referred to on the vases, and when it is not. Blood pouring out of the victim is never part of the iconography of thysia but instead confined to representations of sacrifices, at which the blood had to be discarded, or set in a mythical context and with little or no correspondence to actual, practised rituals. The sphageion, the vessel used for collecting the blood, most frequently occurs in scenes showing the mageiros cutting up the meat, indicating the use of this vessel when preparing the blood for consumption. The bloodstains on the altar, finally, are not found on all altars and, when depicted, there are only a few stains on the vertical side of the altar, and the altars are never shown as covered with blood.
