Significance for science
We continue to upgrade and to develop various methodologies and techniques of archaeological data assembling. We are testing continuously the relevance of modern interpretative concepts and models. The constant concern about the development of the Slovenian archaeological terminology is integrated into the framework of development and presentation of archaeological research work standards. The interdisciplinary orientation of programme and the embedment within the international research networks, demonstrated in the past, enable constant reflexion and consideration of cognitive and interpretative possibilities and limits of modern archaeological research work in Slovenia and broader. Up to date remote sensing methods (LiDAR) and new dating techniques (AMS C14) enable relevant interpretations of cultural landscape formations. The development of methodologies and procedures of archaeological field research, geophysical prospection methods, geoelectrical cartography, magnetic survey, georadar survey and three-dimensional laser surface scanning assure exceptional possibilities for com-position of complementary data basis and in integrative explanation of archaeological record. In the programme we are developing GIS tools for archaeological use, which will beside the functional and economical provide also the cognitive aspects of the investigated area. The interdisciplinary research of artefact assemblages and archaeological contexts establishes a permanent cooperation between humanistic and natural sciences. With the research programme we are establishing a new data and interpretative infrastructure, which certainly vitally contribute to the international scientific discussions regarding theoretical-cognitive contents of archaeological research and the development of interpretative concepts and models. Itl enables up to date interpretations of cultural and cognitive aspects of artefact assemblages, landscapes and palaeoenvironmental, settlement, social, economic and other dynamics on a local and regional level during the prehistoric periods, the era of Roman provinces and in the Middle Ages and Modern period.
Significance for the country
The new data and interpretative infrastructure enable up to date the interpretation and modern perception of past cultural and cognitive aspects of artefact assemblages, palaeoclimate changes, landscapes and environmental, settlement, social, economic and other dynamics on a local and regional level. New interpretative postulates have been defined and applied within the national and international arena. The development and integration of new methods of non-invasive prospection, discovery and evaluation of new and know sites and archaeological landscape contribute to the development of the cultural heritage protection within the county and abroad. In this context we are stressing their holistic study of the archaeological study and the concern with primarily archaeological context. The importance of non-invasive prospection techniques, stratigra-phic excavation and development of the relevant databases are key factors in effective archaeological practice of preventive archaeology and in the field of spatial planning and development. The benefits of this approach are evident through many applicative projects he filed of preventive archaeology, lead by our researchers (motorways construction projects, power stations, spatial planning as well of cultural monuments and protected areas).
