The essays in this volume, which are conducted across a broad geographical range, reveal the great potential of studying Bronze Age hoard sites. This volume provides a glimpse into current research on Bronze Age hoard sites between the Baltic Sea and Carpathian Basin while also opening up new perspectives on a phenomenon often regarded as fully researched.

English summary: The special structure of the German provinces makes it necessary to examine their 'provincial religion' as a number of regional organizations and not as a unified structure. In order to obtain a complete picture of a 'provincial religion', it is necessary to take a look at the essence and above all at the upholders of the regional religions from a chronological and regional perspective which does justice to the heterogeneous cultural, social and economic structure of the area under examination. This volume, the result of a collaboration between religious studies experts, linguists, archeologists and ancient history experts, shows various ways of researching the religious conditions in one of the border provinces of the Roman Empire. This can and is meant to be used as a basis for continued work in this field. German description: Der vorliegende Band ist das Ergebnis einer gleichnamigen Tagung, die unter Leitung der Herausgeber im Oktober 1998 in der Werner-Reimers-Stiftung, Bad Homburg, durchgefuhrt wurde. Die in dem fruheren Band Romische Reichsreligion und Provinzialreligion (herausgegeben von H. Cancik und J. Rupke) erarbeiteten inhaltlichen und methodischen Ergebnisse werden nun auf die germanischen Provinzen ubertragen.Die beiden 'Militar'provinzen Ober- und Niedergermanien besassen weder urbane Traditionen noch eine Schriftkultur und unterschieden sich deshalb erheblich von den Provinzen des Mittelmeerraumes und des Ostens. Die besonderen Verhaltnisse dieser Regionen sind religionsgeschichtlich ein ausserst wichtiges Untersuchungsfeld, da sie Aufschlusse uber die religiosen Gegebenheiten an der Peripherie des Romischen Reiches versprechen. Dort mischten sich ausserdem keltische und germanische Kultureinflusse. Durch die starke romische Militarprasenz, Umsiedlungsaktionen ganzer Stamme in der fruhen Kaiserzeit und den Zuzug aus anderen Gegenden des Reiches, vor allem Innergalliens und Italiens, besassen sie eine sehr heterogene Bevolkerung. Mit Ausnahme einiger weniger Gebiete gab es dort keine einheitliche religiose Tradition. So kam es zur Ausbildung einer eigenen regionalen Religion mit spezifischer lokaler Auspragung in landlichem und stadtischem Umfeld. Diese besondere Struktur der germanischen Provinzen macht es notwendig, deren 'Provinzialreligionen' regional zu betrachten.Dieser Band soll als Ergebnis einer Zusammenarbeit von Religionswissenschaftlern, Sprachwissenschaftlern, Archaologen und Althistorikern Perspektiven und Zugangsweisen zur Erforschung der religiosen Verhaltnisse in einer der Randprovinzen des Romischen Reiches bieten, auf denen weitergehende Arbeiten aufbauen konnen und sollen.

The volume provides collected papers by the Indo-Europeanist Günter Neumann (1920-2005) on Germanic, and especially Old Germanic, names. The author's main interest lays in the semantic and etymological interpretation of personal and place names, together with exploring the motivation behind the giving of names. Here, the link with historical studies is particularly evident.

"Divine interiors" is een onderzoek naar de aankleding van Griekse en Romeinse heiligdommen met wandschilderingen. Machtige marmeren façades, beeldhouwwerken en schilderingen speelden een belangrijke rol in het aanzien van deze monumenten. Terwijl de officiële tempels, die met de steden of de staat waren verbonden, meestal een plechtige maar sobere uitstraling hadden, waren de gebouwen die gericht waren op meer volkse uitingen van religiositeit juist bont beschilderd. Scènes uit het leven van de vereerde godheid, aanhangers en beoefenaren van de cultus, planten en dieren konden de bezoekers van deze heiligdommen in hogere sferen brengen. Het valt op dat er in de uitgestrekte Grieks-Romeinse wereld veel overeenkomsten te vinden zijn tussen vaak ver van elkaar gelegen tempels. De muurschilderkunst kende net als andere kunstvormen stijl- en smaakveranderingen, maar die hadden wel overal dezelfde uitstraling.

English summary: Ancient festivals served to promote religious communication beyond the boundaries of political or religious communities. It was in these festivals that religious communication was intensified and practised extensively. Permanent religious signs - sanctuaries, statues, religious roles - were highlighted and adapted for at least one festival each year. Due to the dramaturgy of the festivals, many of the people concerned became actors, and even more became part of the audience. Games, theatrical performances and processions in particular attracted many local people as well as those from outside the city. Professional actors, athletes and orators introduced new practices and established new standards. The competition between cities and their elites was the driving force behind many innovations and the development of new festivals. German description: Gegenstand dieses Bandes sind die Feste der antiken Gesellschaften. Die Beitrage blicken auf das Fest als Ort von religiosem Austausch auch uber die Grenzen einer politischen oder religiosen Gemeinschaft hinweg. Die Diffusion von Festen und Festpraktiken gerat in den Blick. Grosse offentliche Feste waren der Ort, an der religiose Kommunikation an einem Ort besonders intensiv und breitenwirksam wurde. Die standig vorhandenen Zeichen - Kultstatten oder gar Kultstatuen, religiose Rollen - wurden ins Licht geruckt, wurden fur wenigstens ein Fest im Jahr aktualisiert. Die Dramaturgie des Festes machte viele zu Akteuren, mehr Personen noch zu Zuschauern: Rituelle Elemente wie Schauspiele, Zirkusspiele oder Prozessionen ermoglichten eine solche Beteiligung fur viele in Stadten und wurden zum Anziehungspunkt fur Festgaste von ausserhalb, 'Touristen'. Professionelle Athleten, Schauspieler und Festredner verbreiteten neue Praktiken und Standards. Der Wettbewerb zwischen den Stadten und in den stadtischen Eliten war ein wichtiger Motor von Innovationen und der Neuerfindung von Festen. Beitrage uber auswartige Festbesucher, Kalenderexporte und uber Feste zu Ehren des romischen Herrscherhauses lassen diese Funktionen wie die Realitat antiker Feste greifbar werden, die Weinkulte wie Mysterien einschlossen.

Studies on finds in Roman Britain and the Western Provinces have come to greater prominence in the literature of recent years. The quality of such work has also improved, and is now theoretically informed, and based on rich data-sets. Work on finds over the last decade or two has changed our understanding of the Roman era in profound ways, and yet despite such encouraging advances and such clear worth, there has to date, been little in the way of a dedicated forum for the presentation and evaluation of current approaches to the study of material culture. The conference at which these papers were initially presented has gone some way to redressing this, and these papers bring the very latest studies on Roman finds to a wider audience. Twenty papers are here presented covering various themes.

Derived from a conference held in Aarhus, Denmark in 1998, these essays discuss a wide range of archaeological issues centered around the study of the landscape and its relationship to human settlement. Information from unpublished research and fieldwork in Denmark is drawn together and set within a broader Scandinavian and European context. The various papers therefore discuss evidence from Norway, Denmark, Finland, Germany, and Sweden, and are divided into sections on: Landscape and settlement transformations; problem of nucleation and dispersal; Settlement and non-agrarian production; Human-animal relationship; landscape seen as a social and mental construct; landscapes of power; Methods of study. A vast amount of information at a very reasonable price.
