Excerpt from The Archeological History of New York, Vol. 1 Today most collectors are better informed, and the cultural remains of the race that formerly occupied this continent, are careful pre served, cataloged and labeled. Science has taken the lead and asks for facts. Today-the pottery pipe and engraved gorget, and even the humble arrowhead are regarded as archeological specimens. Definite scientific problems have arisen and challenge us to solve them. Every artifact left in the soil by the vanished red men may be of importance, if the associated facts are properly recorded. The position of a banner stone in a grave may unlock some secret; the presence of pottery 'even in the form of fragments may shed important light upon a knotty problem in archeology. A conscientious collector observes and records everything for he knows that a care less collector is a destroying vandal who merely confuses himself and others, and ruins the field of inquiry for the better informed.

The Classical Origins of Modern Homophobia

From government to literature to architecture, few fields in western culture are untouched by the influence of Ancient Greece and Rome. Even mores that may seem exclusively modern often have roots in the classical past. This book takes an in-depth look at the ancient roots of homophobia, including its Pythagorean origins and its eventual spread throughout the Roman Empire and, consequently, the rest of the world. Originally, male homosexuality occupied something of an honorable position in ancient Greece. By the end of the Roman period several centuries later, this attitude had changed so radically that to be found guilty of homosexual actions was punishable by death. This work investigates how such a shift occurred and traces the various cultural forces that brought about almost universal homophobia throughout western societies. Beginning with the earliest documented instance of homophobia in the teachings of Pythagoras (who was surrounded by mystery even in ancient times), the author examines its proliferation through various disciplines, citing sources from political history, anthropology, religion, and psychology as well as the analysis of ancient texts. Through extensive historical research, he follows the concept from Greece to Macedonia and finally to Rome, examining relevant religious attitudes including those of Christianity and Judaism. Finally, he discusses the ways in which homophobia was solidified in the legal legacy of the Roman Empire. An extensive bibliography provides additional resources regarding classical influence on modern culture.

Science is a living, organic activity, the meaning and understanding of which have evolved incrementally over human history. This book, the first in a roughly chronological series, explores the development of the methodology and major ideas of science, in historical context, from ancient times to the decline of classical civilizations around 300 A.D. It includes details specific to the histories of specialized sciences including astronomy, medicine and physics—along with Roman engineering and Greek philosophy. It closely describes the contributions of such individuals as Pythagoras, Hippocrates, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Alexander the Great, Euclid, Archimedes, Ptolemy, Seneca, Pliny the Elder, and Galen.

The articles in Naked Truths demonstrate the application of feminist theory to a diverse repertory of classical art: they offer topical and controversial readings on the material culture of the ancient Mediterranean. This volume presents a timely, provocative and beautifully illustrated re-evaluation of how the issues of gender, identity and sexuality reveal 'naked truths' about fundamental human values and social realities, through the compelling symbolism of the body.

Excerpt from Turquois Work of Hawikuh, New Mexico, Vol. 2 Small turquois pendants (fig. 1) also were found with the dead, usually in such position as to indicate that they had been suspended from necklaces. There is no evidence of the wearing of turquoises attached to the nasal septum, as mentioned by the natives through whose country Fray Marcos passed, and there is no likelihood that such a custom was in vogue among the ancient Cibolans, since it is not mentioned by any of the Spanish chroniclers who were actually among them. As at present, little effort was made to give such pen dants a conventional form, the main object being to preserve as much as possible of the turquois; yet for convenience in stringing or sus pending them, they were sometimes made more or less triangular, but with rounded corners and edges.

Excerpt from Shakespeariana, Vol. 2: June, 1885 Indeed any one who cares to examine the age of Shakespeare will see that archaeology was one of its special characteristics. After that revival of the classical forms of architecture which was the occasion of the Renaissance, and the printing at Venice and elsewhere of the master-pieces of Greek and Latin literature, had come naturally an interest in the ornamentation and costume of the antique world. Nor was it for the learning that they could acquire, but rather for the loveliness that they might create, that the artists studied these things. The curious objects which were being constantly brought to light by excavations were not left to moulder in a museum, for the con templation of a callous curator, and the ennui of a policeman bored by the absence of crime. They were used as motives for the produc tion of a new art, which was to be not beautiful merely, but also strange.

Excerpt from The American Museum Journal, 1909, Vol. 9 HE journal presents this month photographs of three Bird Habitat Groups. Two of these, recently completed, are of special interest to residents of the Vicinity of New York City. The first shows the Duck Hawk or Peregrine Falcon as it nests on the Palisades. This Falcon IS famed for its fearlessness and strength of wing and talon. Among falconers the Peregrine was rated second only to the Gyrfalcon and no person of lower rank than an earl was permitted to own and fly one of these noble hawks. The Peregrine is found throughout the greater part of the world but is nowhere common. Near New York City it is known to nest only on the less accessible ledges and cliffs of the Palisades and Hudson Highlands. The second local group illustrates the bird-life of our Hackensack Meadows in August. During this month, and in September, these marshes are the home of myriads of birds which come to them to roost and to feed. Swallows of several species are comparatively rare in_the marshes during the day, but late in the afternoon they stream in by the thousand, coming from every direction and steering their flight toward some regularly frequented roost in the reeds. They leave early in the morning radiating to all points of the compass to scour the country for food. Red-winged Blackbirds, Bobolinks, now called Reedbirds, and Carolina or Sora Rail are attracted to the marshes by the Wild rice which ripens about this time; and the last two are now killed in large numbers. In August the marshes are remarkable not only for their birds but also for their flowers. L\iarsh mallows, cardinal flowers, jewel-weed, sagit taria, pickerel weed, loose-strife, wild sunflower, hempweed, vervain gerardia and many other species bloom SO luxuriantly that one might imagine that nature was holding a flower Show.
