Esther van Deman was important not only as one of the first female Archaeologists, but also for writing the original survey of Roman building methods, materials, and chronology. This paper encapsulates her work into a short form focused specifically on Roman concrete buildings, showing the methodology by which building chronology was set. Even in modern times, this sort of work forms the basis for the dating of Roman buildings. This paper is of use to anyone wishing to develop a more nuanced understanding of how and why Roman buildings are dated as they are and the process by which the dating of material remains are arrived at.

The Life & Legend of the Vilna Ger Tzedek Count Walenty Potocki

ISBN: 1-59333-097-9
Walenty Potocki was a young Polish nobleman who abandoned wealth, power, and unlimited worldly prospects to convert to new religion - Judaism. Potocki was betrayed by a member of the religious community he embraced and burned at the stake by the Church he left behind in 1749. This book examines eleven versions of this remarkable man’s story and the heated, previously unpublished, correspondence between the Potocki clan and one of his early biographers. Noble Soul is the record of one man’s defining faith, and of the compelling human need for personal spiritual fulfillment.
