Article
The process of archaeological inference begins prior to the beginning of interpretation or even the actual discovery of a particular object. Certain objects, materials, or groups of finds raise more intense interest among researchers and general public alike. Object made of precious materials and minerals are particularly attractive, especially if...
Article
Full-text available
Archeological excavations and field survey of Neolithic sites during the last 100 years have formed a certain framework within which we developed an interpretation of Neolithic life in this area. Even though researchers have stressed the importance of sites, region, or period in their publications, most of the results revealed very modest remains o...

Barice-Gređani group was first defined on a basis of cemetery finds from cemetery Barice near Gornja Orahovica and it was long known in literature as a group of Barice-Gređani type cemeteries. That was supported by a number of excavated and published cemeteries and lack of settlement research in Slavonian and Bosnian Posavina was present at that ti...

From the Late Neolithic in the 6th millennium BC in Carpathian Basin developed circular fortified settlements, some of which in long term eventually grow into settlement mounds, tells. Our modern perception, which is developed from some of extraordinary examples of settlement mounds dominating the landscape, is only partly accurate since only some...
Article
Paleoradiology plays an important role in archeology since its first implementation soon after discovery of X-rays. Computed tomography (CT) as a paleoradiological tool in studies of ancient cremation urns is described only in few articles. Clinical magnetic resonance (MR) has never been used in studying ancient cremation remains. We report the use...

Archaeological research on the position of Dvor knezova Iločkih (Court of the Dukes of Ilok) in Ilok has been carried out systematically since 2001. In 2006, the research was focused on the efforts to define the north part of Gothic palace, the central yard and the northwest corner with its ramparts and towers. The first stage of research, which re...
Article
The article presents the Early Bronze Age urn grave discovered during the rescue excavations on the site of Kaznica-Rutak near Selci-D{stroke}akovački. The fragment of a decorated bowl found in the urn enabled us to place the entire find into the context of a wider and more complex network of links between various cultural groups of the Early Bronz...

The excavations conducted in 2005 are a follow-up of systematic archaeological excavations that began in 2001. It was determined that the supporting piers in the northern wall cannot be fully defined at this stage of excavations. Large parts of the unearthed piers broke off and were found beneath the pier base slightly moved. The wall discovered al...

The village Mačkovac is situated on the left, Croatian bank of the Sava River, approximately 15 km south of Nova Gradiška. It was first mentioned in the literature already at the end of the 19th century, parallel to a hoard of bronze artifacts found at the Klupko site (Ilić-Oriovčanin, 1874; Ljubić, 1889). This was the first in a series of hoards f...

Project
The main goal of the project is to understand the social dynamic in the late Neolithic Slavonia through computational simulations and the development of social and cultural relations and change models which will be built using data collected by field and laboratory research within the project, as well as the results of the previously conducted research. The existing framework of archaeological interpretations relies on theoretical models and concepts developed by other social and humanistic disciplines, formed during the first half of the 20th century and as such proved inadequate for a comprehensive understanding of social dynamics in the past. Paradigmatic changes in the 21st century archeology require new theories and explanatory models for the interpretation of life in the past. As part of the project, agent-based modelling (ABM) will be used, because it produces results that reflect stochastic complexity, similar to the history of human activities, thus exceeding the traditional limitations of interpretation and analysis of the past. This project will involve experts from 4 scientific fields: archaeology, geology, biology and sociology. Each of the team members is an expert in specific research issues and analysis of specific data sets: analysis of material culture, spatial data analysis, data science, agent-based modelling, social dynamics, field research and remote sensing, geological and geo-archaeological analysis, and analysis of fauna and plant residues. Large and heterogeneous data sets collected during the project will be analysed and modeled by computational methods through new ways of conceptualization, scale and resolution in social complexity and change research. Through the application of ABM, mutual relations of different variables in a spatial environment populated by agents that mimic social behavior will be investigated in order to build models of possible causes and reasons of social dynamics and social change in the Neolithic Slavonia.
