We all have dreams of what we want to do and who we want to become. Many of us eventually decide it is too late; we have missed our chances. But is it ever really too late to try?
Don Simpson does not think so. In his memoir, Too Old for Motor Racing, he tells the story of how he became a race car driver at the age of sixty-two. Simpson is an ordinary man from a regular family; he spent his early years living on a council estate in Liverpool, UK. He attended the school at the end of his street, leaving as soon as he could. As a young man with a young family, he could not indulge in his passion for motor racing except as a spectator; racing was simply too expensive and risky for someone with a family to take care of. Later in life, however, Simpson discovered limits are almost always imagined, not real. At the age of sixty-two, he began to race.
Although your passion may be for something other than motor racing, this memoir seeks to inspire you to go after your dreams, because it is never too late to try.
Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean past communities were nodes of contacts where a wide range of crafts were employed, developed, sometimes ordered and overseen, but, most of all, needed in order to sustain the community itself -- whether the context was a small village, a cave settlement or a palace. This volume investigates smaller and larger networks of contacts within and across the Aegean and nearby regions, covering periods from the Neolithic until Classical times (6000#xE2;#xAC;#x1C;323 BC). It zooms into the world of technologies, crafts and, more specifically, its archaeological #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;left-overs#xE2;#xAC;", in order to place social and technological networks in their larger economic and political contexts. By investigating ways of production, transport/distribution and consumption, this book covers a chronologically large period in order to expand our understanding of wider cultural developments inside the geographical boundaries of the Aegean and its regions of contact in the east Mediterranean. This book brings together scholars#xE2;#xAC;" expertise in a variety of different fields ranging from historical archaeology (using textual evidence), archaeometry, geoarchaeology, experimental work, archaeobotany, and archaeozoology. Chapters in this volume study and contextualise archaeological remains and investigate these via an interdisciplinary methodology in order to expose networks of crafts-people, craft traditions or people who employed various technologies to survive. Central questions in this context are how and why traditions, techniques and technologies change or remain stable, or where and why cross-cultural boundaries developed and disintegrated #xE2;#xAC;#x1C; and then to explore the impact of these phenomena. Tracing Prehistoric Social Networks through Technologythus contributes to the field of archaeological and anthropological technologies and social structures of a wide range of Mediterranean communities with these widening ideas, concepts and methodologies in mind.
