    The church of Saint Sophia in Andravida, built around the mid-13th century in Elis, Western Greece has its still-remaining apse roofed in ribbed cross vaults. Built by the Frankish Princes of Achaia who occupied in the 13th and 14th century an area dominated by the native Byzantine architecture, Saint Sophia shows the great effort and attention paid in transferring new architectural forms and technology into a politically and culturally alien environment. This paper discusses the vaults’ construction and structural behaviour and explores questions around the technology transfer mechanisms from Western workshops. Although efficient, the vaults appear rather basic, and conservative compared to the contemporary endeavour to gradual disintegrate the envelope in Gothic architecture in Western Europe. On the whole, the analysis of the geometry, construction and structural performance showed a well-executed design with direct local input only at the construction stage.

    Menuahinili olarak tanımlanan arkeolojik merkez, Iğdır’ın Karakoyunlu ilçesinin 2,6 km. güneydoğusunda alçak bir lav akıntısı tepesi üzerinde bulunmaktadır. Bu merkez ile ilgili ilk araştırmalar 19. Yüzyılın sonlarında Rus bilim insanları tarafından başlatılmış olup geride kalan yaklaşık 150 yıllık süreçte yerli yabancı birçok bilim insanının hemfikir olduğu üzere ilgili arkeolojik merkez Menuahinili olarak tanımlanmıştır. Urartu Kralı Menua’ya ait Taşburun ve/veya Başbuluk-Bulakbaşı yazıtları ile haberdar olunan antik kentin Urartu Krallığı sonrasında Geç Demir Çağı’nda da yoğun bir kullanıma sahne olduğu anlaşılmaktadır. 2021 yılı araştırmaları kapsamında çalışma yapılan arkeolojik merkezde ateş çukuru bu ateş çukurlarına entegre libasyonlar, Geç Demir Çağı’na tarihlenen çanak çömlek parçaları ve bir tane heykelcik kafası tespit edilmiştir. Orta Aras Havzası’nın Iğdır Ovası ile Ağrı Dağı’nın doğuda iç içe geçtiği alanda bulunan arkeolojik merkezin İran ve Ermenistan’a olan yakınlığı merkezin Geç Demir Çağı’nda kullanılmış olma ihtimalini güçlendirmektedir. Menuahinili olarak adlandırılan arkeolojik merkezde Geç Demir Çağı’na tarihlenen bulgular bu makalenin özünü oluşturmaktadır The Arhaeological center, defined as Menuahinili is 2,6 km. from Karakoyunlu district of Iğdır southeast of it is on a low lava flow hill. The first researches on this center were starded by Russian scientists at the end of the 19 century, and in the past 150 years, as many local and foreign scientists agree the relevant archaeological center was defined as Menuahinili. It is understood that the ancient cidy which is known with the Taşburun and/or Başbulak-Bulakbaşı inscirptions belonging to the Urartian King Menua was the sceene of intense use in the Late Iron Age after the Urartu Kingdom. In the city where the work was carried out with the scope of the 2021 researches, libations integrated into these fire pits, potsherdes from the Late Iron Age and a figurine head were found. The proximity that the archaeological center to Iran and Armenia located in the area where the Iğdır Plain of the Middle Aras Basin and Mount Ararat intertwine in the east, strengthens the possibility that the center was used in the Late Iron Age. Findings dated to the Late Iron Age in the archaeological center called Menuahinili constitute the core this article.

    Wearable Mixed Reality (MR) technology is a tool that gives people a new enhanced experience that they have not encountered before. This study shows the process of designing new museum experiences while considering how this technology changes previous museum experiences, what those experiences are, and what people should feel through these experiences. This process was systematically conducted according to the UX design process of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. In the analysis step, six types of museum artifact viewing experiences were defined: knowing, restoring, exploring, expanded scale, encountering, and sharing experience through research and user surveys related to the museum experience. In addition, through research analysis related to MR technology, presence, flow, and natural interaction were defined as three essential factors that users should feel in the MR experience. In the synthesis stage, optimized wearable MR experiences were designed and implemented by applying the necessary experience types and essential factors according to the characteristics of each artifact. In the evaluation stage, user experience evaluations such as user experience tests for essential factors in the MR experience, User Experience Questionnaire (UEQ) tests for interaction products, and the Visual Aesthetics of Websites Inventory (VisAWI) test for visual experiences from various perspectives were conducted on the developed results. Through these evaluations, users gave positive scores to the design results based on the experience types and essential factors defined in this study. When applying new media technologies such as wearable MR technology, improved technology implementation is important, but an understanding of the applied field must first be obtained, and user analysis must first be thoroughly conducted. This study will be a guide to the systematic development process to be followed when applying wearable MR technology to other fields.

    Purpose Eco-museums safeguard the cultural authenticity and the historical identity of the place in which they operate. Conventional organizational models and management practices are generally employed to achieve this institutional aim. Conversely, innovative solutions – such as digitization – are overlooked. Adopting a service quality management perspective, the article intends to examine the role of managerialization and professionalization in triggering eco-museums' digitization. Design/methodology/approach An empirical analysis involving 126 eco-museums operating in Italy as of 2018 was designed to investigate the implications of managerialization and professionalization on the eco-museums' propensity to embark on a digitization process. Two different forms of digitization were examined: (1) the presence of eco-museums in the digital environment; and (2) the exploitation of digital tools for service delivery. The mediating role of two “soft” total quality management (TQM) practices, i.e. people centredness and strategic focus on visitors' experience, was contemplated in the empirical analysis. Findings The research findings suggest that managerialization and professionalization have ambiguous effects on eco-museums' digitization. Nevertheless, they indirectly contribute to a greater digital presence of eco-museums and to a larger use of digital tools for service delivery through an increased use of soft TQM practices. Research limitations/implications Managerialization and professionalization are likely to foster the digital transition of eco-museums, which advances their ability to protect and promote the local cultural heritage. Soft TQM practices intended to achieve people-centredness and to enhance the visitors' experience should be exploited to stimulate the eco-museums' digitization. Originality/value The article examines the triggers of eco-museums' digitization, providing some food for thought to scholars and practitioners.

    La Mission archéologique d’Amyan a débuté ses travaux en 2019. Situé dans le nord-ouest du Kurdistan irakien, le site d’Amyan se présente comme un tell important entouré d’une ville basse, d’une surface d’une quinzaine d’hectares. Occupé de manière quasi ininterrompue depuis le Néolithique jusqu’à la période islamique, Amyan se présente comme le site idéal pour étudier l’occupation de cette région du Kurdistan irakien ainsi que le rapport entre le site et son environnement immédiat, la plaine de Navkur, dans l’arrière-pays de Ninive, plaine extrêmement fertile qui témoigne d’une importante densité d’occupation. Cet article présente dans un premier temps un aperçu historique de cette région depuis le VIIe millénaire jusqu’à la période islamique. Dans un second temps sont exposés les résultats de la première campagne de la Mission archéologique d’Amyan. Northern Mesopotamia, Nineveh’s land and the new researches at AmyanThe Archaeological Expedition in Amyan began its work in 2019. Located in the northwestern region of Iraqi Kurdistan, the site of Amyan presents itself as an important tell surrounded by a lower town, with a surface area of around fifteen hectares. Occupied almost continuously from the Neolithic to the Islamic period, Amyan is the ideal archaeological site to study the occupation of this region of Iraqi Kurdistan as well as the relationship between the site and its immediate environment, the Navkur plain, in the hinterland of Nineveh, an extremely fertile plain which shows a high density of occupation. This article first presents a historical overview of this region from the 7th millennium to the Islamic period. Then, the results of the first campaign of the Archaeological Expedition in Amyan are developed. شمال بلاد الرافدين، أرض نينوى والأبحاث الأخيرة في اميانبدأت البعثة الأثرية في موقع اميان عملها في عام ٢٠١٩. وهو يقع في شمال غرب كردستان العراق، ويظهر كتل كبير محاط محاطة بمدينة منخفضة، تقدر مساحتة بحوالي خمسة عشر هكتاراً. تم استيطان الموقع دون انقطاع تقريبا منذ العصر الحجري الحديث وحتى العصر الإسلامي، ويعتبر اميان موقعاً مثالياً لدراسة الاستيطان البشري في هذه المنطقة من كردستان العراق وكذلك العلاقة المباشرة بين الموقع وبيئته، أي سهل نافكور، في المناطق المحاذية لنينوى، وهو سهل خصب للغاية يشهد على كثافة عالية من الاستيطان. يقدم هذا المقال أولاً لمحة تاريخية عن هذه المنطقة من الألف السابع حتى العصر الإسلامي. ثم يعرض ثانياً نتائج تنقيبات البعثة الأثرية في اميان.
