    We’ve been running HAEMUS as a center for scientific research and promotion of culture almost 4 years.  During this time we have organized a lot of events, seminars, workshops, conferences, public lectures and educational tours.  Most of our friends, colleagues, partners as well as the clients always commented the following: since people are more visual than textual, we could gain more followers and popularity of our work by creating an Instagram account.

    Goce Naumov_BPC2015

    Goce Naumov (Euro Balkan University, Skopje) Of Miniatures and Hybrids: The Neolithic Figurines and Anthropomorphic House Models in the Republic of Macedonia The figurines and anthropomorphic ceramic hybrids in the Balkan Neolithic were often over generalized in the archaeological interpretation. Mostly, they were identified with a pantheon of goddesses or recently as anonymous individuals representing the Neolithic perception of human body.

    Catherine Commenge (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique – CNRS, Paris) Technical Systems and the Social Dynamics of the Transmission of the “Neolithic package” in the Southwestern Balkans: Some Evidence from Tumba Madzhari, Republic of Macedonia Technical studies that consider technical choices and the “know-how” behind technical processes, closely dependent on the identity of their makers and on their sources of tradition in manufacturing, are a fruitful field for appreciating processes of cultural transmission and spatiotemporal dynamics. The very genesis of those technical systems has to be examined in so far as processes have already
