Abstract
The Research Program 'Archaeology' demonstrates permanent concern for the development of both methodological and theoretical-cognitive aspects of archaeological research work. The interdisciplinary orientation and the embedment within the international research networks enable us to maintain the constant reflexion and consideration of the possibilities and limits of modern archaeological research approaches, methodologies and interpretations. The research program is based on the premise of the high interpretative potential of the interdisciplinary approach and actualizes concepts of archaeological landscapes and locus activity. In the fieldwork contexts two main research methods are applied, non-invasive surface and subsurface surveys, including remote sensing methods and stratigraphic excavation. We upgrade the typological, descriptive and comparative artefact analyses with the archaeometrical approach, and we introduce the chaîne operatoire concept. The interdisciplinary research helps to create a new data infrastructure and interpretative premises that vitally contribute to the international discussions regarding the long-term relations between people and environment, and cultural, cognitive, technological, social, and economic and other dynamics, agency and identity construction, chronologies, etc.
Significance for science
The research programme provides permanent care for the development and application of modern methods and techniques in recording and analyzing archaeological data on one hand, and for the development and application of modern interpretive concepts and models on the other. The interdisciplinary orientation and the embedment within the international research networks enable a constant reflexion and consideration of cognitive and interpretative possibilities and limits of modern archaeological research work in Slovenia and worldwide. Our efforts coincide with the marked interest by the research community in deployment of interdisciplinary and non-invasive techniques at complex sites. Our point there is that this should not be just an ancillary exercise to direct excavation programs. Rather than non-reflected linear piling of data layers, this research must be structured and follow research goals of its own. The interdisciplinary research focus on artefact assemblages establishes a permanent cooperation between humanistic and natural sciences. It helps to create a new data infrastructure and interpretative premises that vitally contribute to the international scientific discussions regarding the long-term relations between people and environment, cultural, cognitive, social, economic, technological, settlement  and other dynamics, agency and identity construction, chronologies etc.
Significance for the country
The implementation of non-invasive research has made a rationalization of archaeological rescue operations possible. This research develops procedures to deploy at the most complex of sites, thereby contributing to the standards and methods to be used by heritage services. The results can also contribute to better understanding of the long-term relations between people and environment that may help sustainable and balanced spatial development of Slovenia. Its international context adds to the promotion of Slovenian science and widens the space for training of young specialists. The research approaches will be integrated in the Archaeology Curriculum at the University of Ljubljana.
