AB  - Narratives of transformation in Iron Age societies on the periphery of the Greek world have positioned colonial powers as agents of change. Archaeological sites exhibiting apparent Greek or Macedonian evidence are often taken to exemplify Hellenisation, whereby 'barbarians' adopted 'more advanced' Greek practices. Such narratives, however, are imbued with assumptions of cultural superiority, failing to elucidate the complexity of past social interactions and how these manifest in the archaeological record. The barrel-vaulted reservoir at the site of Kale-Krsevica in Serbia reveals that the simplistic framework of Hellenisation is insufficient to explain the construction of this unique hydraulic installation.

AB  - Bone artefacts are among the less thoroughly studied classes of archaeological material, especially when it concerns particular periods and regions. The reasons which lead to this are not uniform. The most conspicuous and the most common reasons are linked to the research practices of culture-historical archaeology, often neglecting bone artefacts, considering them not sufficiently attractive or informative. The most significant shift towards recognition of a set of potential information that may be gained from bone objects was achieved within the framework of studies of prehistoric technology during the second half of 20th century, especially in the French archaeological school. This research strategy raised a number of questions concerning the acquisition of raw material, modes of production and usage of objects, whose interpretative potential gained in power, leading to the increased attention paid to faunal remains in archaeological investigations. Yet this source of information on the actual details of relations between people and material culture, opened by technology studies, has not been sufficiently explored. It may be suggested that the reasons are the narrow specialization of researchers and insufficient inclusion of the gathered information into the wider interpretive framework, various traditions and lack of cooperation among the national archaeological "schools", language barriers etc. However, the main reason behind this state of affairs may be sought for in non-integrated theoretical perspectives and the lack of clearly articulated interpretive position of researchers seeking to apply the knowledge gained from technology studies, considering this strategy as an "objective, scientific method", providing concrete answers clearly complying to the expectations of the dominant archaeological paradigm. The paper offers a critical review of a number of examples of application of technology studies in archaeology and possible directions for a more integrated and theoretically informed approach. One of the obvious solutions may be sought in the direction of another research strategy - material culture studies. The aim of the paper is thus to link these two approaches, whose theoretical foundations are not uniform today, but the history of the ideas and the mode of articulation of the basic theoretical assumptions indicate similar theoretical roots.

Kako u starijoj, tako i savremenoj evolucionističkoj literaturi, podrazumeva se da je reč o naseljima zajednica na 'nivou' države i potpuno razvijenog kompleksnog društva. Teorija evolucije, kao evrocentrični pristup, prisutna je i u kulturno-istorijskoj arheologiji na Balkanu gde se koristi za klasifikovanje naselja kao gradova, predstavljajući svojevrsno vrednovanje nasleđa kao 'boljeg' ili 'naprednijeg'. Ovaj rad iz dva različita ugla ispituje problem urbanizacije na primeru tzv. helenizovanih naselja gvozdenog doba Balkana. Prvi je, uz prihvatanje svih postmodernih kritika, primena savremenih evolucionističkih teorija gde se zaključuje da gvozdenodopske zajednice nemaju sve karakteristike kompleksnih društava, što baca određenu sumnju na interpretacije naselja kao gradova. Drugi ugao, kroz pitanje nasleđa i njegove aktivne uloge u savremenom svetu, ispituje razloge za ustaljeno tretiranje ovih naselja kao gradova.
AB  - In the archaeological literature, the problem of urbanization and the emergence of cities have most often been solved in the framework of the formation of states and first 'civilizations'. Both in traditional and more recent works based on evolutionary theory, it has been presupposed that these are the settlements of the communities on the 'state level', with fully developed complex society. Evolutionary theory, as an Eurocentric approach, is frequently present in the archaeology of the Balkans, used as a tool in the classification of settlements and identification of cities, thus leading to the practice of evaluation of heritage as 'better' or 'more advanced'. The paper examines the problem of urbanization from two theoretical starting points, focusing on the case study of the so-called 'Hellenized settlements' of the Balkan Iron Age. The first line of inquiry is based upon the contemporary evolutionary theory, taking into account the post-modern critique of the approach. The conclusion is that the Iron Age communities do not comply with all the characteristic traits of complex societies, raising considerable doubt concerning the interpretation of the settlements as cities. The second part of the paper examines the issue of heritage and its active role in the modern world, aiming to explain the reasons for the widely accepted interpretation of the Iron Age settlements as urbanized. .

AB  - Dozens of similar fortified settlements exhibiting a familiarity with some Greek building techniques and traditions existed in some parts of the Balkans during the Iron Age, especially from the fifth to third century BC. The settlements are documented in a vast continental area stretching from modern-day Albania, the FYR Macedonia and south central Serbia to Bulgaria. Archaeological interpretations mostly accept that economic factors and trade with late Classical and early Hellenistic Greece were instrumental in their emergence, and the phenomenon is interpreted as Greek 'influence' and local 'imitation' of Mediterranean culture. Presenting the most influential interpretations of the Classical and Hellenistic economy and some perspectives in economic anthropology, this paper examines the traditional (mostly formalistic) culture-historical understanding of the Balkan 'Hellenized settlements' of the mid-first millennium BC and Mediterranean interrelations. It also looks at the construction and role of status identity as a crucial social factor in shaping the Iron Age communities in the hinterland, and defines possible trade and exchange activities as only one aspect of the identity of a burgeoning elite.

Naselja se okvirno datuju od V do III veka pre n. e. i tradicionalno tumače kao finalna faza etnogeneze paleobalkanskih zajednica za koje se pretpostavlja da u tom periodu žive u 'plemenskim državama', čije stanovništvo je okarakterisano kao 'narod' ili čak 'nacija'.

Pitanje političkih aspekata ovakvih interpretacija u različitim balkanskim zemljama koje favorizuju pojedine paleobalkanske zajednice i pokušaj kontekstualizovanja ovakvih nacionalističkih tumačenja u sadašnjosti predstavlja osnovnu temu ovog rada.
AB  - In the Balkan archaeologies, ethnic identity has been traditionally treated as a stable and monolithic category, readily recognizable in the material culture. The issue of 'ethnogenesis' of the Palaeo-Balkan 'peoples' is the dominant topic and the basic research subject in culture-historical archaeology, today regarded as the consequence of the modern European nationalisms. Starting from the constructivist point, the paper seeks to examine the interpretations of ethnicity in the Balkan Iron Age, on the example of the so-called 'early Classical settlements' - a series of mutually very similar fortified settlements located in the vast lands of the Balkan hinterland, today in the territory of several modern states. These settlements are broadly dated into the period from the 5th to the 3rd centuries BC, and have traditionally been interpreted as the final phase of the ethnogenesis of the Palaeo-Balkan communities, supposed to have been living in 'tribal states', whose population has been recognized as 'people' or even 'nation'. In the traditional literature, the ethnic characteristics have been readily recognized, projecting directly the modern socio-political structures onto the communities of the past that could have been founded on completely different group identity or political organization. The paper deals with the issue of the political aspects of these interpretations in various Balkan countries, favoring certain Palaeo-Balkan communities, and an attempt is made to contextualize these nationalistic narratives into the present.

AB  - Lokalitet Kale u selu Krševica nedaleko od Vranja bio je naseljen tokom IV i početkom III veka pre n.e. Sistematsko istraživanje započeto je 2001. godine i traje do danas. Za sada je otkriveno više od 100.000 fragmenata svakodnevne keramike koja je u velikom procentu izrađivana na vitlu. Velika sličnost kermike iz Krševice sa materijalom iz Grčke, Bugarske i BJR Makedonije predstavlja jedan od najzanimljivijih problema vezanih za tumačenje ovih lokaliteta. Rad ima za cilj da prikaže različite metodološke i teorijske principe tumačenja tzv. sive keramike rađene na vitlu.
AB  - The systematic excavations of the forth century B.C. settlement Kale in village Krševica started in 2001 and are still ongoing. This oldest urban settlement in Serbia has produced over 100,000 fragments of domestic wheel made gray pottery. Close resemblance of this material with vessels discovered in Greece, Bulgaria and FRY of Macedonia is the most interesting subject. This article aims to present various methodological and theoretical perspectives of possible interpretation of this problem. The largest segment of literature considering this topic consists of culture-historical approach, which led traditional archaeologist in ethnic determination of this highly similar material culture as representation of Paeonian, Thracian, Greek or Dardanian ethnicity depending on the territory where the gray pottery has been detected. The processual and postprocessual explanations, which are not aiming at ethnic determination of archaeological questions, have not yet been offered. The same could also be said for the contemporary multidisciplinary studies like ethno archaeology and identity. Since the pottery material discovered in Krševica has only been preliminary published, these modern interpretations could be of certain help in interpretation of this problem.

AB  - Na ovom lokalitetu nedaleko od Bujanovca tokom istraživanja 2001-2006. godine otkriveni su značajni ostaci naselja s kraja klasičnog i početka helenističnog perioda. Pored mnogobrojnih nalaza, koji pripadaju IV i prvim decenijama III veka pre n.e, otkriveno je preko hiljadu celih i fragmentovanih tkačkih tegova, pršljenaka i kalemova od kojih je obrađeno 1038 bolje očuvanih i karakterističnih primeraka. Ovom broju treba priključiti i tridesetak komada iz Narodnog muzeja u Vranju koji su prikupljeni i objavljeni posle prvih iskopavanja u Krševici 1966. godine. Osnovne tipološke odlike ovog materijala odnose se na 314 tegova u obliku piramide (tip A - 35%; Cl. 1; T. I-III), tri tega u obliku kupe (T. IV. 35-37), 432 ovalna tega u obliku violine (tip B - 48%; Sl. 2; T. IV. 38-47 V) i 149 diskoidnih tegova (tip C - 17%; Sl. 3; T. VI; VII. 72-76). Pršljenci korišćeni za pređu zastupljeni su sa samo 22 primerka (Sl. 4; T. VII. 77-85) a 118 komada odnosi se na kalemove koji su imali široku primenu, ali se često objavljuju zajedno sa ovom vrstom nalaza (Sl. 5; T. VII. 86). Na izvesnom broju tegova nalaze se oznake ili žigovi urezani ili utisnuti u meku glinu koji su predstavljali "zaštitne znake ", dokaze o vlasništvu, ili su imali dekorativnu ulogu. Prilikom iskopavanja u Krševici tegovi su otkriveni u skoro svim sondama, ali osim manjih koncentracija za sada nisu otkrivene veće grupe koje bi mogle da se odnose na objekte sa radnim prostorom, ili radionicama. Prema stratigrafskim podacima najviše ovih nalaza potiče iz gornjih slojeva. Po svemu sudeći od kraja IV veka pre n.e., pored značajnih građevinskih poduhvata, prosperitet naselja ogledao se i u porastu stanovništva, pa shodno tome u većem intenzitetu tkačke delatnosti. O tome pored velikog broja tegova, dosta govore i paleozoološke analize. Pokazalo se da posle govečeta najzastupljeniju vrstu čine ovce, a vuna je u ovom slučaju predstavljala jednu od osnovnih sirovina. Ne ulazeći u problematiku ove specifične delatnosti, kao ilustraciju navodimo samo dva primera. To su piramidalni tegovi i vertikalni razboj iz kasnog bronzanog doba koji je rekonstruisan prema rezultatima arheoloških iskopavanja na jednom lokalitetu u severnoj Nemačkoj (Sl. 8). Drugi primer je atička vaza iz VI veka pre n.e. sa poznatom scenom gde žene, ili devojke rade na razboju, što živo odslikava intimnu atmosferu grčkog porodičnog domaćinstva (Sl. 9). Sličnosti su očigledne, a tegovi i ostali pribor, uključujući i razboj, bili su uobičajena pojava na svim većim naseljima gde su se obično devojke i žene bavile tkanjem. Materijal iz Krševice ima brojne analogije sa lokalitetima iz Bugarske i Makedonije, ali se sa sve većim brojem nalaza stiče utisak da pored piramidalnih tegova, koji se sreću na daleko širem mediteranskom prostoru, ovalni tegovi u obliku violine postaju karakteristika severnoegejskih, i posebno tračkih, makedonskih i peonskih oblasti. Tako su dolinama Vardara, Strume i dalje sve do Krševice stizali ljudi i roba, gde se potom izrađivao ne samo tkački pribor, već i daleko brojnija i značajnija lokalna "helenizirana" keramika. O značaju ovog za sada jedinstvenog naselja u dolini Južne Morave, koje je održavalo bliske kontakte sa Egejom, pored drugih nalaza svedoče i razvijene delatnosti poput grnčarstva i tkačkog zanata koji su u IV i početkom III veka pre n.e., u najmanju ruku zadovoljavale osnovne potrebe stanovništva.
AB  - The site of Kale at Krševica, with significant remains of a settlement dating to the late Classical and early Hellenistic periods, has yielded, in addition to other finds, more than a thousand loom weights, spindle whorls and spools of which 1038 pieces are typologically classified. This material provides evidence for the craft of weaving in the settlement in the fourth and early third centuries B.C.
