The Norse discovery and settlement of Iceland in the late ninth century AD offers a test case for the study of human impacts on previously unoccupied landscapes and the formation of new societies under challenging conditions. The Norse Viking Age settlement of the island serves as a cautionary tale about the anthropogenic destruction of fragile environments, while simultaneously providing lessons about the strategic management of marginal ecosystems and nuanced examples of societal evolution and secondary state formation. Archaeological investigation of these processes is complemented by oral traditions preserved in the Icelandic sagas.

This article presents a brief summary of the traditional interpretations of horse remains in burials of this period and presents an alternative interpretation of these remains with particular reference to the Viking cemetery at Pierowall, Westray, Orkney Islands which is dated c. AD — It is argued that the act of horse deposition at Pierowall should be understood in the wider social context of the Scandinavian Peninsula and Scottish Islands during the initial period of west-ward expansion and social and political upheaval. It is in this context that the act of horse burial performed a specific communicative function which served to create and strengthen cultural allegiances with trading groups travelling from the Scandinavian Peninsula towards the western seaboard of Scotland, and into the Irish Sea.

Animal remains from twelve Iron Age ca. Rarefaction analysis of the species richness and anatomical distribution indicates that the samples included both general domestic waste type and species and element-selective deposits of cattle and horse skulls, mandibles and limb bones. According to radiocarbon dating results, there seems to be a gap between the dates of burials and those of other ritual activities, indicating that the context of such deposits is a disused cemetery. The faunal deposits could represent remembrance rituals or relate to votive offerings intended to ensure healthy or productive livestock, a practice described in later ethnographic sources. These deposits seem to be in use within a large geographical area over a long period, and some aspects of this belief system may even have survived into the Christianisation of society in the historical period. The identification of various activities such as slaughter, butchery, consumption, crafts and rituals in the zooarchaeological record is a complex process and has been previously discussed in detail, with particular regard to the interpretation of ritual and domestic waste Lentacker et al.

Notes Abstract: As noted by Brothwell over thirty years ago, "[archaeological] remains of dogs have been discovered in Peru for over years, but relatively little information is available on them" Brothwell ; this situation is little changed in the ensuing decades. Although dog remains have been uncovered in their hundreds, perhaps thousands, no synthesis exists of their cultural context and meaning geographically and temporally. Andean collections in both Peru and in North America remain little studied, yet hold much important information on not only the dogs themselves, but on their related human counterparts as well. Dogs were in some cases restricted as status items in the same way as precious metals and vicuna cloth and other forms of wealth were in the Inca Empire, reserved for persons and families of status. In early European contexts, "an important function of the graves

Как они этого сразу не заметили. Северная Дакота - вовсе не отсылка к названию американского штата, это соль, которой он посыпал их раны. Он даже предупредил АНБ, подбросив ключ, что NDAKOTA - он. Это имя так просто превращается в Танкадо. И лучшие в мире специалисты-криптографы этого не поняли, прошли мимо, на что он и рассчитывал.

К тому времени все уже рухнет. Джабба открыл рот, готовый что-то сказать, но тут его буквально парализовал душераздирающий крик. Все повернули головы к Сьюзан Флетчер, которая выпрямилась и поднялась со стула.

Компьютер немедленно распознал частоту ее голоса, и дверь, щелкнув, открылась. Сьюзан проследовала. Охранник залюбовался Сьюзан, шедшей по бетонной дорожке.

Вспомнив всю услышанную от шефа ложь, она похолодела и посмотрела на него, в глазах ее мелькнуло подозрение. - Это вы убили Танкадо. Стратмор вздрогнул и замотал головой: - Конечно. Убивать Танкадо не было необходимости. Честно говоря, я бы предпочел, чтобы он остался жив.

Сьюзан плохо его понимала. Ей показалось, что столь своевременная кончина Танкадо решила все проблемы.
