Die Innenausstattung des Rössenhauses — Zeiteninsel-Blog

Zitat

Wir haben alle eine ziemlich genaue Vorstellung von dem was zum Inventar eines heutigen Haushalts gehört. Es wäre schön, wenn wir dies genauso auf die Inneneinrichtung eines Rössener Haushaltes vor 6600 Jahren übertragen könnten. Bei den Ausgrabungen in Niederweimar hat man anhand von Pfostenspuren zwar die Gebäudegrundrisse rekonstruieren können, der Innenraum war aber weitestgehend Fund-leer. […]

Neolithic seafarers

Tuesday, 21 July 2020

This is Pelješac peninsula on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. 
 
 
In one of the caves near the tip of the peninsula, archaeologists have discovered prehistoric cultural deposits, about 4 meters thick, covering the entire local post-Mesolithic sequence…
Eleven occupation phases and sub phases span 6,000 years, from the Early Neolithic to the Illyrian Iron Age…
 
You can read about the lithic finds from Pelješac peninsula in the article „Lithic artifacts from nakovana (Pelješac): Continuity and change from early neolithic until the end of prehistory“ by S. Forenbaher and Zlatko Perhoč
 
Among many lithics found in the cave, a few were made from glossy and semi-translucent black obsidian…
The analysis of the obsidian has determined that it came from the Gabellotto Gorge area of the island of Lipari, just above Sicily…
 
 
This in itself is amazing…How the hell did Lipari obsidian end up on Pelješac in Neolithic??? But there is more…All other lithics from the cave were made of non local cherts…
The analysis of the material showed that it came from the mines located in Gargano Peninsula in Apulia region.

Mistress of the house

Thursday, 2 July 2020

Early Neolithic figurines from Macedonia depicting anthropomorphised house and bread oven…They are symbolically equating Woman, Mistress of the house, with the house and the bread oven…



 

This symbolism is still found in Balkan Slavic folklore where both the house and bread oven are exclusive domains of the Mistress of the house, the oldest woman in the house…

In Serbia we have two very interesting proverbs equating the woman with the house (home):

„Ne stoji kuća na zemlji nego na ženi“ – The house doesn’t stand on the ground but on the woman

„Gde nije žene tu nije ni kuće“ – where there is no woman, there is no house

Original primitive shelters were made by leaning single supporting beam against a tree and then creating a roof by piling twigs, branches and fallen leaves against it. You can see that the most important part of this construction is the main roof supporting beam…


This shelter eventually became house roof, when horizontal walls were added to create more space in the shelter. But the roof is still the most important part of the house, because it turns enclosure into a shelter…This is artist depiction of a neolithic house…
