  • Early human occupation in the Balkans: Balanica cave complex

    on Dec 15, 13 • in Anthropology, Archaeology, News, Paleolithic, Prehistory, Serbia • with Comments Off on Early human occupation in the Balkans: Balanica cave complex

    Professor Mirjana Roksandic (paleonathropologist at the Department of Anthropology, University of Winnipeg) joined Dusan Mihailovic‘s (University of Belgrade) team in 2006 to study early human occupation in the Balkan peninsula. Balkans represents the most convenient corridor for human and animal populations to penetrate Europe. At the gates of Europe in Dmanisi Georgia, we have earliest evidence of human populations outside of Africa at 1.7 million years ago. We also know that hominins reached western Europe by 1.2 mya. We also know that anatomically modern humans (an older version of all of us) spread into Europe

  • Catalog – Prehistoric ladies from Macedonia

    on Dec 5, 13 • in Anthropology, Archaeology, Art, Cultural heritage, Eneolithic, Exhibition, Neolithic, News, Prehistory, Republic of Macedonia • with Comments Off on Catalog – Prehistoric ladies from Macedonia

       The abundance of terracotta figurines depicting women from prehistory. i.e. from the Neolithic and Eneolithic, discovered in the Republic Macedonia, have imposed the idea of conjoining the most of them together and displaying them in an exhibition titled Prehistoric Macedonian Ladies. It embraces an attempt to present, in a single display, archaeological artifacts that are inter-related merely by one concept – the woman. The exhibition aims to elucidate a segment of the rich spiritual life of the prehistoric populace settling these territories from the sixth until the third millennia BC. This collection has been

  • Neanderthals Found in Greece

    on Nov 6, 13 • in Anthropology, Archaeology, Excavation, Greece, News, Paleolithic, Prehistory • with Comments Off on Neanderthals Found in Greece

    Scientists have uncovered new evidence of Neanderthal occupation at the Kalamakia cave site on the western coast of the Mani peninsula in Greece, adding to previously recovered finds at other sites in the area. The finds lend additional support to the theory that Greece and the Southern Balkans served as a dispersal corridor and refugium for Pleistocene era human populations. The Middle Paleolithic (300,000 to 30,000 BP) cave site was excavated in 1993 – 2006 by an interdisciplinary team from the Ephoreia of Paleoanthropology and Speleology (Greek Ministry of Culture) and the Muséum national d’Histoire

  • Trove of Neanderthal Bones Found in Greek Cave

    on Oct 14, 13 • in Anthropology, Archaeology, Greece, News, Paleolithic, Prehistory • with Comments Off on Trove of Neanderthal Bones Found in Greek Cave

    A trove of Neanderthal fossils including bones of children and adults, discovered in a cave in Greece hints the area may have been a key crossroad for ancient humans, researchers say. The timing of the fossils suggests Neanderthals and humans may have at least had the opportunity to interact, or cross paths, there, the researchers added. Neanderthals are the closest extinct relatives of modern humans, apparently even occasionally interbreeding with our ancestors. Neanderthals entered Europe before modern humans did, and may have lasted there until about 35,000 years ago, although recent findings have called this

    The Disputed Histories Library is a collection of text-books from primary and secondary schools, that have been in use in different time periods on the territory of ex-Yugoslavia. The purpose of starting this library by Vahida Ramujkic, was for it to be accessible to the general public, so as to inspire series of workshops, discussions and new projects. Until now it was available in Youth Center Crna Kuca in Novi Sad, on Spaport Bienalle in Banja Luka, in Knjizara of CZKD in Belgrade and in the NGBK Gallery in Berlin. It turns out that students at
