Thomas Terberger, Stefan Winghart (Hrsg.): Die Geologie der paläolithischen Fundstellen von Schöningen
In 1994, archaeologists in the open-cast lignite mine near Schöningen encountered a scientific sensation: finds and findings pointed to Stone Age hunters who had hunted wild horses here on a lakeside about 300,000 years ago. After the first volume of the series "Forschungen zur Urgeschichte aus dem Tagebau Schöningen" provided a chronological classification of the site, the current volume is about geology.
Sebastian Hornung, Johannes Gilhaus und Bettina Glunz-Hüsken: Rituell oder profan? Ein bronzezeitlicher Fundplatz in der bayerischen Donau-Aue
The laying of the gas pipeline from Forchheim to Finsing in Bavaria in the years 2017-18 brought to light a section of a Bronze Age settlement in the Danube floodplain. The present excavation report describes the excavation methods comprehensively and asks the question about the character of the finds: ritual or profane?
The newly published volume is dedicated to the 'main church' of al-Andarin, the investigation of which was started in 2010 with a research project of the University of Heidelberg. Although only one excavation campaign could be undertaken because of the Syrian war, first results are available on the typological classification of the 'main church' in the early Byzantine church building of Syria as well as the consideration of the ensemble in its urbanistic context. Finally, in a contribution by N. Viermann some inscriptions newly discovered in 2010 are published and the state of research on the Greek epigraphy of al-Andarin is summarized.
Sebastian Brather, Hans Ulrich Nuber, Heiko Steuer, Thomas Zotz (Hrsg.): Antike im Mittelalter. Fortleben, Nachwirken, Wahrnehmung
A new, preferably unbiased view of spatial structures proves to be a decisive prerequisite for freeing research from rigid assumptions and models. On the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the research association "Archäologie und Geschichte des ersten Jahrtausends in Südwestdeutschland", the contributions collected in this volume underline how different approaches and perspectives can be, even when they deal with the same topic.

Verena Gassner (ed.): Regional exchange of ceramics – case studies and methodology
Pottery vessels and other ceramic objects constitute important sources for issues of trade and exchange in Antique societies. Most studies on the exchange of ceramics however concentrate on aspects of long-distance trade. Aspects of regional exchange between neighbouring cities have not been given the same attention in the field of Mediterranean archaeology, although they might give important insights into the problems of regional connectivity and they also had greater importance during Antiquity than normally assumed. These newly published conference proceedings comprise case studies from different areas and different periods of the Mediterranean.
