The research program aims at verifying a variety of hypotheses about the archaeological past, by observing regional samples of archaeological landscapes and settlement (Karst, Ljubljana Moors, Krka-Dobova plain, Hvar island), and specific categories of material culture (ceramics, cut stone, stone tools, metal). The problems addressed deal with cultural change and process (e.g. neolitisation), aspects of settlement, land use and landscape planning (ancient land divisions), and mechanisms of production and distribution of material culture. Research tools applied/developed include typologies of classes of material culture, stratigraphic sequences by regions, graphic archives of sites and landscapes, ceramic archives, and corpuses of art production. Special attention is given to methods and techniques of acquiring/retrieving archaeological field data, both by prospections (aerial photo interpretation, geophysics, systematic surface surveys) and excavation, and related both to artefactual and environmental remains (ecofacts). In the frames of cultural archaeology, two units of observation are clearly conceptualized and operationalized: the »site«, locus of concentrated archaeological finds interpretable as locus of past human activity, and »archaeological culture«, supra-regional unit marked by distribution of typical archaeological finds, serving as metaphor for «people« as agent of historical process. On the other hand, research on aspects of culture, which articulate at the regional level, has led to major innovations and breakthroughs in the field, establishing as it does meaningful links with other disciplinary fields and traditions. It has enabled connecting »sites« into hierarchically or otherwise structured units/systems, and conceptualizing the landscape both as »site« and as »artefact«. The program is devoted to systematically exploiting information inherent in spatial organisation of archaeological record, inasmuch as this record reflects spatial articulation of aspects of culture under study. In the process, units of observation will be defined according to the nature of the aspect of past culture observed, and will differ considerably from case to case both in terms of extent, and of the rationale dictating the choice of limits. Aspects observed range from macro cultural process such as neolitisation, rural settlement and land use, industrial production and marketing, and ideological repesentation.
