Abstract
With the project “Prehistoric pile-dwelling settlements on the Ljubljansko barje, Slovenia: chronology, culture and palaeoenvironment” we would like to continue the interdisciplinary research of pile-dwelling settlements of the Ljubljansko barje. Within the project we will perform archaeological field actions in the Ljubljansko barje and our work will involve the development of wetland research methodology. We will perform the dendrochronological research and strive to synchronize dendrochronological curves of the Ljubljansko barje with absolutely dated chronologies of foreign institutions. Much attention will be given to the paleoenvironmental research and the research of paleoeconomy (palynology, archaeobotany and archaeaozoology). Archaeological finds will be studied, interpreted, and presented in a catalogue since this project will also involve multidisciplinary publications of archaeological finds of the Ljubljansko barje and Slovenia in general.
Significance for science
The project ‘Prehistoric pile-dwelling settlements on the Ljubljansko barje, Slovenia: chronology, culture and palaeoenvironment’ is important for both, the Slovene and European prehistory, and for the development of archaeology in Slovenia: - the project team is heading toward absolute dating of the all prehistoric pile-dwellings in the Ljubljansko barje; - on the basis of the archaeological wood from the Ljubljansko barje some methods of absolute dating are being developed; - the Ljubljansko barje provides ideal conditions for the research of paleoenvironment and paleoeconomy – results can be compared to the results of similar research in the wetland sites north of the Alps; - the project team is developing the methodology of field research on wetland; - the knowledge about the Neolithic, Eneolithic, and the Early Bronze Age periods in Slovenia is being widened.
Significance for the country
The project ‘Prehistoric pile-dwelling settlements on the Ljubljansko barje, Slovenia: chronology, culture and palaeoenvironment’ is important for the Slovenian national identity and pride. A decade ago Slovenian archaeology allowed for the Ljubljansko barje, from the archaeological standpoint, to sink into the oblivion. With the last decade of research the project team has managed to return it to its rightful position on the prehistoric map of Europe. Exceptional finds (wheel with an axle, metallurgical aids, etc.) and top level research achievements contribute greatly to the recognition of Slovenia in the world. One of the most important achievement of the project team in the research and work at the Ljubljansko barje is the inscription of the pile dwelling sites in the UNESCO’s list of World Cultural Heritage.
