In a recent paper (>5-6 years ago), I remember seeing a paleogeographic reconstruction of South America (it looked something like the attached link, but for South America) during the period it was isolated from other land masses (either the Eocene, Oligocene, or Miocene). However, when I went to try to find the figure again, I could not locate it. All of the paleogeographic maps of South America I have seen either focus on the northwestern corner of the continent or Patagonia. I was wondering if anyone knew of any papers that had presented similar maps of South America during this time period.
In what PGmc form would PIE *ste-stóh2-e result according to established sound laws? The question hypothesizes that the word had been reanalysed as pretero-presentic, with parallels such as *kann(e), *skal(e).
The reconstruction *ste-stóh2-e ‘is standing’ is from Ringe 2006 p.34 https://oxford.universitypressscholarship.com//mobile/view/10.1093/acprof:oso/9780199284139.001.0001/acprof-9780199284139
The examples of such ruins are the Egyptian pyramids, the Parthenon of Greece, the Coliseum of Rome and indeed the Seven Architectural Wonders of Antiquity, etc. Why are they left to rot and decay, even when the drawings to reconstruct them are known and the technologies to reconstruct them to their original concepts are available?
These are the etymological generics of the cultural conservation and management in the Local Legislation of the Historic City: (Ordinance No. 14, Series of 1997)
1. Cultural Conservation. It means all the processes of caring/ looking after the Historic City with the end objective of retaining/ monitoring/ maintaining its cultural significance. It embraces maintenance and may in some of circumstances include preservation, restoration, reconstruction and adaptation or a combination of any one of these processes enumerated.
2. Cultural Preservation. It means continuously maintain the fabric of the historic city in its existing and present state so as to retard/ avert further deterioration in its fabric.
3. Cultural Restoration. It means returning the fabric of a historical building, a landmark , a monument, a shrine to a known earlier state by removing additions or reassembling existing components without introducing new material and without altering its cultural significance.
4. Cultural Reconstruction. It means returning the historical building, a landmark, a monument, a shrine , a street or a plaza to nearly as possible to its known earlier state. It is differentiated from restoration by the introduction of new material as fabric but does not prelude the use of old material into the fabric of the place.

After WW II, the way of reconstruction was selected to recover quickly in terms of social, economic and cultural aspects. On the other hand, considering globalization and demand of high-rise building stocks in big cities, some historical buildings were faced to be demolished. At this point,the question is to conserve them by reconstruction techniques since important assets are psychical view, appearance, overall height in city and construction techniques of structures or is to accept what happened and to revive the death structure.
I seek co-authors for a research on the demography of isolated communites. I have a few thousand of records from the parish registers (baptisms, marriages and deaths) of an Italian village located in a small island, covering the XVI-XVIII centuries. I'm looking for specialists in the fields of automatic family reconstruction, genetics of isolated populations and historical demography
Cultural heritage documentation and preservation require the possible techniques for digitization and archiving process as a valuable resource for specialists involved in the conservation and protection of heritage, moreover, as an open-source project for public access through the Web. The new digital technologies facilitate the possibility of obtaining new products not only by the survey activities, but also in the representation and visualization of CH which represent powerful tools for the analysis of historical monuments in support of the reconstruction and restoration activities.
I want to acquire an A3 scanner for historical aerial photography. I will use these images for digital photogrammetrical reconstruction and the quality and consistency (lack of deformations caused by the scanning process) is essential. After doing some preliminary reading it is still not clear to me what scanning method is better for this purpose CCD or CIS as I have found very different opinions on this subject.
I would be thankful if I could get opinions about this and, if possible, recommendations of good A3 scanners for this task.
