Archaeology of Dalmatia - AHIS301

This course explores the human past from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages in the region of Dalmatia. The students will examine a range of archaeological material and sites - as well as important written and epigraphic sources - from the eastern Adriatic coast and its deep hinterland. It will enable students to engage in a study of long term historical processes affecting landscape, habitation, etc. in the region which is known as a border area, positioned as a liminal zone between different cultural circles. Students will be able to tackle a number of different periods (Iron Age, Greek, settlement, Roman, Early Christian, Early Medieval, Byzantine, etc.) relevant for the study of Ancient history and archaeology, but also for understanding culture and the past of this poorly known area.
