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 colonization, Roman Republic and Empire, Late Antiquity/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.
