PeBA 2017 – Spheres of Interaction
The role of the Western Balkans as a bridge between the Eastern Mediterranean and Central Europe has become painfully apparent during the recent refugee crisis. The very same route along the rivers Vardar and Morava was one of the main communication routes already throughout European prehistory.
The conference “Perspectives on Balkan Archaeology – Spheres of Interactions” focuses on the connections and relationships between Late Bronze / Iron Age communities in the Western and Central Balkans and the surrounding regions, including the Aegean, the Apennine Peninsula, the Black Sea region, the Southeast Alps and the Carpathian Basin.
The conference is organzied by Mario Gavranović, Daniela Heilmann, Aleksandar Jašarević, Aleksandar Kapuran and Marek Verčík in cooperation with the Institute of Archaeology in Belgrade.
