Magazine "Archaeology Worldwide"

Archaeology Worldwide, the magazine of the German Archaeological Institute, addresses the general public. It offers a biannual report on DAI activities, contains stories on how archaeology solves ancient riddles, and explains how archaeological findings can be used to understand our present and future – often with surprising results.

Die Neue Bauakademie

Megacities sind zu zentralen Herausforderungen unserer Zeit geworden. Das stete Wachsen einiger Städte und die Entvölkerung ehemaliger Industriestädte machen die Stadt zu einem Ort, an dem in großer Dynamik soziale und kulturelle Veränderungen wirksam werden. Deshalb braucht es Denkräume, um die nicht selten separat agierenden Disziplinen und Experten zum Thema zusammenzubringen. Die in diesem Heft skizzierten Perspektiven sollen die Diskussion um den Wiederaufbau der Bauakademie bereichern und für einen Ort werben, der sich diesen zentralen Themen ganz im Sinne Schinkels in einem ganzheitlichen Ansatz nähert.

Surveying the Ancient World

In this issue, our Cover Story illustrates how the collaboration between archaeology and the natural sciences can function. And how international cooperation specifically can lead to ground-breaking results is shown in the Cultural Heritage section with a feature on Chinese-German activities at the Sacred Pond Pavilion in the Forbidden City, Beijing. The Panorama section proves the point that authors of archaeological manuscripts should never give up hope. It can happen that they get published 90 years after submission.

On the Move

"On the Move" is the cover story in this issue of our magazine. Starting out with Neolithic journeys, it goes on to look at Greek sanctuaries with an international clientele, the Roman Empire shortly before its transformation into the medieval world, ports on various continents, and it ends with a voyage to the far-off South Pacific. In Focus this time is a recently founded archaeological heritage network that shows how current transformative movements can be an occasion to meditate on common origins and can promote cooperation. Our Panorama feature meanwhile reports on an indispensable human activity and the part it has played in the lives of all of us for 40,000 years now: music.

Reconstruction. A network for archaeological cultural heritage

The Archaeological Heritage Network (ArcHerNet) brings together German expertise in the field of cultural preservation and cultural heritage protection. The objective is to make this expertise available for cultural preservation projects in other countries too.  The first such project to be implemented by the ArcHerNet, with the support of the Foreign Office, is "Stunde Null" ("zero hour"), aimed at developing a viable future for the time after the crisis in countries that are riven by conflict.
