Este Blogue é um estudo da Associação Projecto Raia Alentejana e tem como objectivo a discussão da violência em geral e da guerra na Pré-História em particular. A Arqueologia da Península Ibérica tem aqui especial relevo. Esperamos cruzar dados de diferentes campos do conhecimento com destaque para a Antropologia Social. As críticas construtivas são bem vindas neste espaço, que se espera, de conhecimento.

Guerra Primitiva\Pré-Histórica
Violência interpessoal colectiva entre duas ou mais comunidades políticas distintas, com o uso de armas tendo como objectivo causar fatalidades, por um motivo colectivo sem hipótese de compensação.

Man first reaction
Man first reaction to the unknown is violence in societies the reaction is war and genocide, we need to study the origin of war - Blog Violence and Prehistory.

Man, Science and Art
Man is science and art, they've been with him through the ages. Military science or art as been Man biggest investment. The World we live in is the result of our knowlegde. Knowlegde in killing and oppresing Nature and fellow sapiens.

Heroism
In a small group its easy to behave in ways that reduce our individual fitness but increase the fitness of the group (Altruism). You will fight for your family, for your Band and sacrifice yourself easely. In larger groups like the States in which we live in a concept was invented: Heroism.

Field Battle and Ritual
In smaller societies (Bands, Tribes and small Chiefdoms) field battle is ritual, with rules and a few casulties, it's a form of settling group disputes, ends with the ofenders death or with some form payment. Societies that saw in field battle the only purpose of annihilation became Empires (Romans, Zulus, USA,....).

Classical War
We cant use the term "Classical war", Greeek war was very different from Roman war, the first had ritual field battles with rules engraved on stone and a few casulties, the romans fought to the last man.

We cant define war chronologically, even today we have tribal war (guerrilla warfare) in Afeganistan, Papua, South America......everywhere autochthonos people fight state invaders.

Journal of Conflict Archaeology

Natasha Ferguson to MILITARCH

Maney Publishing to publish Journal of Conflict Archaeology from 2011

The Centre for Battlefield Archaeology is pleased to announce the re-launch of the Journal of Conflict Archaeology by Maney Publishing from 2011. Formerly published by Brill, with the final volume (5) now available, the journal will appear three times each year and is to be available in online and printed versions. Founded and edited by Tony Pollard and Iain Banks (University of Glasgow, UK), the Journal of Conflict Archaeology is devoted to battlefield and military archaeology and other spheres of conflict archaeology, covering all periods with a worldwide scope. Additional fields of interest include the archaeology of industrial and popular protest, contested landscapes and monuments, nationalism and colonialism, class conflict, the origins of conflict, forensic applications in war-zones etc. Submissions and proposals for papers are now being accepted and in the first instance can be submitted as abstracts or enquiries to the editors
(t.pollard@archaeology.gla.ac.uk or i.banks@archaeology.gla.ac.uk).

The Journal represents an exciting new discipline within Maney’s list of 17 journals in archaeology and heritage, and provides an important outlet for the best research in this fast-growing subject.

The Editors, Tony Pollard and Iain Banks, are based at the Centre for Battlefield Archaeology at the University of Glasgow, UK. The Centre is the first facility of its kind and has earned a reputation as an international centre of excellence for the burgeoning study of the archaeology of battlefields and other archaeological manifestations of human conflict.

Tony Pollard welcomed the new publishing partnership: “The new arrangement with Maney brings exciting opportunities to develop the journal according to refreshed aims and scope, and to increase the international reach through robust promotion and publication of the journal in electronic and printed format.”

Iain Banks added: “The move to three issues per year allows for faster turnaround of articles, which is good news for authors whose work will be published quickly, and for readers who will be accessing the very latest research.”

Michael Gallico, Managing Director of Maney, is “delighted to publish this acclaimed journal, edited from what is widely regarded as the leading international centre in this rapidly expanding field of study.”

Journal of Conflict Archaeology follows the acquisition of War & Society in 2010 which Maney publishes on behalf of the University of New South Wales, Australia. Along with Arms & Armour published on behalf of the Royal Armouries, Maney has formed a key collection of journals in the field of conflict and military studies.

A Guerra na Antiguidade V

Dando sequência às quatro edições anteriores (realizadas em 2005, 2006, 2008 e 2009), o Centro de História da Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa organiza no corrente ano o Colóquio A Guerra na Antiguidade V. O Colóquio, que se tornou já uma referência no panorama historiográfico nacional, ao propor novos horizontes teóricos, novos problemas metodológicos e novas linhas reflexivas para a análise e compreensão do fenómeno militar no Mundo Antigo, visa uma vez mais o estudo da guerra numa larga diacronia, que parte das civilizações pré-clássicas (Assíria, Egipto e Israel) até chegar ao mundo clássico (Grécia e Roma), sem esquecer os seus inimigos, a Ocidente e a Oriente.


O Colóquio terá lugar no Anfiteatro III da Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa, no próximo dia 1 de Junho; a entrada é livre, destinando-se a inscrição, no valor de 5 EUR, à obtenção do certificado de presença. Para qualquer informação, queiram por favor contactar o secretariado do Colóquio (Drs.
