Stefanie Archut, Sabine Schrenk (Hrsg.), Variatio in Kunst und Handwerk. Modulare Arbeitsweisen in spätantiker und frühbyzantinischer Zeit
Modular working is proving to be an essential motor for cultural development. These are the results of a project carried out mainly by students and doctoral candidates with funding from the VolkswagenStiftung in the research and teaching project of "Poolforschung" at the Department of Christian Archaeology at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn.

Silva Katherina Bruder, Man lebt, wie man wohnt. Untersuchungen zur Wohnhausarchitektur Mittel- und Norditaliens vom ausgehenden 6. bis zum beginnenden 2. Jh. v. Chr.
Most research into Etruscan-Italic domestic architecture of the 5th to 2nd centuries BC concentrates on idealized floor plans, rigid typologies and pre-defined designations. This study breaks new ground in a holistic approach including floor plans, building techniques, design elements and recurrent activity zones.
Mark L. Lawall (Eds.), Assemblages of Transport Amphoras: From Chronology to Economics and Society
Wherever they end up in the archaeological record and however they were used from initial potting to final discard, transport amphoras are artifacts of economic activity. That connection to the ancient economy, however, does not limit the range of archaeological contexts where amphoras played a significant role.
The study presented in this book offers a blueprint to a more holistic approach by systematically employing different methods and scales of analysis. This comprehensive view on Keilmesser opens up room for discussions by offering a new perspective on this and, potentially, other specific tool types.
