Some od his great contributions to Scrolls research still await publication. Zdzislaw J. Kapera presents a preliminary, but fully documented, account of Milik's family background and his scholarly career, focusing on his labours as a qumranologist, a Biblical archaeologist, and epigrapher of ancient Nabataea. He explains Milik's true role in the Third Battle of the Scrolls in the 1990s. Robert Feather publishes the transcriptions and comments on the contents of the tapes of his interviews with Milik in the scholar's last years. Many photographs from the private collections of the authors and from the archives of Milik's family are presented for the first time. Very Good/No Jacket.

Der Band 10 der Studien zur Archäologie in Ostmitteleuropa umfasst Beiträge zum Siedlungsgeschehen von der frühen bis zur mittleren Bronzezeit (ca. 2000-1400 v.Chr.) im Gebiet zwischen Elbe und Warthe. Auf der Grundlage von Siedlungskomplexen dieser Zeit wird - unter Einbeziehung naturwissenschaftlicher Datierungen, naturräumlicher Analysen und Untersuchungen zur Botanik und Anthropologie - das Siedlungsgeschehen hinterfragt und das Wissen zu der zum Teil nur schwer fassbaren Siedlungslandschaft des betrachteten Zeitraumes aktualisiert. Im Fokus steht dabei, neben der genaueren chronologischen Eingrenzung des Überganges von der frühen zur mittleren Bronzezeit, auch die Vorlage von Siedlungsplänen und des Fundmaterials. Dieser Tagungsband ist ein Ergebnis des Symposiums 2011 in Welzow, Brandenburg, das die Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel und das Archäotechnische Zentrum Welzow in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Brandenburgischen Landesamt für Denkmalpflege und Archäologischen Landesmuseum veranstaltet haben. Das vorliegende Werk bietet somit einen Überblick über die neuen Forschungen zur Früh- und Mittelbronzezeit zwischen Elbe und Warthe. New/No Jacket.
