    Aims and Scope

    Images are more than just objects to be observed. In all periods they have had a direct influence on the way we perceive things and act, in particular in the course of ceremonies. In this volume, various archaeological disciplines consider a number of case studies of the relationships between works of art, spaces and actions in past cultures – including the Nasca-Palpa glyphs in South America, the Stone Age site of Göbekli Tepe, Minoan and Mycenaean palaces, and Greek and Roman towns. The aim is to develop a new methodical approach to the power and effect of works of art.
