  • 6,500-year old tin-bronze from Serbia

    on Jan 20, 14 • in Archaeology, Articles, Neolithic, News, Serbia • with Comments Off on 6,500-year old tin-bronze from Serbia

    The hypothesis of a single origin for Eurasian metallurgy has been challenged by the discovery of copper smelting evidence some 7000 years old at Plochnik, a Vincha culture settlement in eastern Serbia. Here, the tin-bronze foil was excavated from an undisturbed context, on the floor of a dwelling structure next to a copper workshop – a single occupation horizon dated to circa 4650 BCE. The tin-bronze foil from the site of Plochnik is therefore the earliest known tin-bronze artefact anywhere, extending the record of bronze making by about 1500 years. Two artefacts were analysed for

  • 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

  • Book: The Roman Danube: An Archaeological Survey

    on Oct 6, 13 • in Archaeology, Book, Bulgaria, Croatia, History, News, Roman period, Romania, Serbia • with Comments Off on Book: The Roman Danube: An Archaeological Survey

    The purpose of this book is to present in summary form the present state of knowledge of the Roman Danube in the light of recent research and archaeological discoveries. The river itself is the core, as it was for the Roman presence in Central and Eastern Europe from early in the first century A.D. to the last decades of the fourth century. In its long course from its confluence with the Inn at Passau, the point from which it assumes its dominant role, to its delta on the Black Sea, Europe’s greatest river impinges on
