BBC News - Fast Track - Will a mock-up of Tutankhamun's tomb pull in tourists? | Hot Spot Antike | Scoop.it

The original tomb of Tutankhamun has deteriorated over the years so an exact replica has been created. But will it pull in the tourists?

Will tourists really want to travel to Egypt just to visit a mock-up?

Constructing the life as lived by our ancient forebears

Constructing the life as lived by our ancient forebears | Hot Spot Antike | Scoop.it

Have you ever tried digging a hole with a stick? Or chopping down a tree with a stone axe? How about living on porridge for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a month? Reading about the way people lived in Stone Age and Mesolithic (10000-5000 BC) times gives only a very limited understanding of how things were in the distant past. Actually recreating everyday life introduces a sense of empathy and other dimensions which paint a far more detailed picture: the essence of experimental archaeology.

Let’s begin with a clarification. Experimental archaeology should not be confused with reconstruction. Those involved don’t dress up as cavemen and women for the sake of an audience. They are using certain tools and techniques common in different time periods to try and learn more about the variables which affected hunter gatherer life while also exposing some of the misunderstandings that have become accepted truths.

The University College Dublin experimental archaeology department is currently building a Mesolithic structure based on the only surviving example on this island: Mount Sandel in Co Derry, which dates from 7800 BC.

José María Herrera: El latín, lengua de Europa

José María Herrera: El latín, lengua de Europa | Hot Spot Antike | Scoop.it

No hay razón para que el lector conozca a Wilfried Stroh, profesor emérito de filología clásica de la Universidad de Múnich. Su fama es reciente y está ligada al inesperado éxito de un libro sobre la historia de la lengua latina titulado “El latín ha muerto, ¡viva el latín!” El doctor Stroh ha venido a la península para promocionarlo y ha causado una gran impresión. Simpático y ocurrente, con pinta de sabio chiflado, se ha dedicado menos a cantar las excelencias de su ensayo que a reivindicar el latín, empresa en la que lleva ya muchos años. “¿No le parece que, para ser coherente, además de hablar latín, debería usted vestir a la romana?”, le preguntó un periodista chusco. Stroh, haciendo gala de buen humor, se excusó diciendo que sólo su mujer y un estudiante sabían hacer el tableado de la toga y que, lamentablemente, no habían podido acompañarlo.

La reivindicación del profesor alemán no es ninguna tontería. Durante siglos el latín fue la segunda lengua de la gente culta europea. Su sustitución por el francés y el inglés tuvo que ver con el auge de estos países, en los que se encarnaban los ideales modernos, y también un cierto progresismo. Aunque suele creerse que el declive del latín fue paralelo a la pérdida de influencia de la Iglesia Católica, cosa parcialmente verdadera, identificar esta con el latín es un error. El latín es la lengua oficial de la Iglesia, pero fue antes la lengua de los romanos y de los ciudadanos de su imperio, dentro del cual se hallaba grandes porciones de Europa. Prueba de su importancia histórica es que en todos los idiomas europeos el número de voces de origen latino es considerable.

La historia del latín. El artículo da mucha información sobre el éxito y el declive de latín. Lo que es más importante, el escritor hace la argumentación sobre la enseñanza de latín: espero que el gobierno español entender la utilidad y las razones de aprender latín.

Classics Collective's curator insight, May 26, 2013 5:25 AM

In this article Herrera narrates the rise and fall of Latin with the help of Wilfred Stroh. On the tradition of Latin Herrera puts the case for teaching Latin, even ranking it as more important than taking our mother tongue as a subject, in the face of teaching reform (known as LOMCE) led by the Education Secretary Wert. A recomended article.
