AB  - Figural representations from the Eneolithic period in the south-east Europe are not very common, especially in comparison with the Neolithic period, and they are also seldom discussed in the archaeological literature. In the Early Eneolithic Bubanj-Hum I culture, part of the Bubanj-Sălcuţa-Krivodol cultural complex, anthropomorphic figurines were produced from clay and bone; however, particularly in the central Balkan area they are rarely found. In this paper, we will present a fragmented figurine so far unpublished from the eponymous site of Bubanj. The figurine was discovered in 1956 and is currently stored at the National Museum in Belgrade. We will present its typological and technological traits and we will also discuss the place of this figurine within the wider context of the Early Eneolithic communities in the central Balkan area.

AB  - Late Neolithic/Early Eneolithic Vina culture is marked by permanent, long-living settlements, increased production of different craft goods and early metallurgical activities. Economic activities were rich and diverse, and included not only strictly subsistence related ones, but also production of luxurious, prestige, "special" objects, such as figurines, personal ornaments, and many more. Furthermore, some studies also suggest that we may note the beginning of craft specialisation in the widest sense within the Vina. culture. On a regional scale, differences in economic activities may be observed among different settlements and also in presence/absence of some artefact types. This may reflect a certain level of functional differentiation and possibly specialisation between different settlements, as noted, for example, among the Neolithic communities in Greece. In this paper, we will focus on the analyses of everyday lithic and osseous tools, in order to examine the differences in everyday activities, raw material management and craft production among different settlements. Through comparative analysis, we will examine the possible presence of a functional differentiation between different Vina culture settlements and its extent.

AB  - The region of Slavonia in eastern Croatia represents the westernmost area inhabited by the communities of the Star≠evo culture, part of the Star≠evo-Körös-Cris cultural complex. This region was intensively inhabited during the period between 6200 and 5500 cal BC, and numerous sites were excavated. Some of the aspects of the lives of these communities, however, are still insufficiently explored, in particular the economy and craft production. In this paper we will focus on lithic and osseous tool assemblages from the site of Kne∫evi Vinogradi-Osnovna πkola. The Star≠evo cultural horizon has only yielded small assemblages of lithic and osseous tools, but they show some interesting technological and typological traits.

AB  - The Roman army required large quantities of different objects for daily-use and it
was an important consumer and producer of diverse craft goods, such as everyday
tools, clothing items, vessels for storage, cooking and consumption, luxury personal
items, and many more.
The Limes regions in Pannonia Inferior and Moesia Superior had an important role in
the economic and political life of these provinces, because of the permanent presence
of the Roman army and state administration, and also thanks to the convenient geographical
position and numerous natural resources. Along with the establishment of
the Roman government in the Pannonia Inferior and Moesia Superior, diverse goods
from different parts of the Empire began to arrive, and craft production by Roman
standards was established in the borderland areas as well. At the same time, autochthonous,
traditional techniques of production were not neglected. In this paper, we will
offer a brief overview of the archaeological and epigraphic evidence for craft production
of objects made from clay, stone and bone raw materials, related to the Limes on the
present-day territory of Serbia (Roman provinces of Pannonia and Moesia Superior).

AB  - The methods of fishing and hunting in prehistory are a complex subject that needs to be analysed from different perspectives. Comprehensive analysis may enable reconstruction not only of subsistence and economy, but also of technology, social organization and cultural attitude towards the environment. Such studies must include various perspectives and also combine diverse data available from the archaeological record. The identification of fishing and hunting gear is not always easy or straightforward; some artefacts may have had another function, some parts may have been made from perishable materials. Among the Neolithic communities in South-East Europe, hunting and fishing preserved a certain role in the economy after the introduction of domesticated plants and animals. However, findings of hunting and fishing gear are not particularly rich, thus raising questions on the raw materials used and adequate identification of these items. In this paper, an overview will be offered of osseous artefacts identified as hunting and fishing gear recovered from Starcevo culture sites in Serbia; their techno-typological traits will be discussed, as well as their general place within the osseous industry and in the wider context of these communities.

AB  - Antler is a specific osseous raw material - it is a renewable resource, which can be obtained through both hunting and gathering, resilient, strong, and may be available in relatively substantial quantities. Antlers were widely used since the Palaeolithic times and had an important role among the agricultural communities as well. They were used for everyday tools, weapons, jewellery and non-utilitarian items. Antler exploitation may be of particular importance in the studying of raw material managing and relations with the environment. In the Late Neolithic Vinca culture, red deer and occasionally roe deer antlers were used for a variety of purposes, mainly for everyday tools. In this paper will be presented the analysis of the role of antlers in the Vinca culture in Central Balkans, manufacturing techniques, typological repertoire, as well as their importance for studying craft production in general.

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.

AB  - The authors present an early evidence for the use of complex fishing techniques for obtaining variable fish resources in prehistoric south-east Europe as recovered at the Neolithic site of Vinta Belo Brdo in Serbia. In particular, a group of bone artefacts have been analysed through the application of an integrated approach combining technological, use-wear, and residue analyses as well as the comparisons with ethnographic artefacts. The results of the functional analysis indicate that these artefacts were parts of lure hooks, i.e. composite hooks, probably used to catch large predatory fish. On methodological grounds, the discussion proposed in this paper could be relevant for other case studies worldwide where one finds prehistoric communities with evidence of fishing activities.

AB  - The earliest Neolithic cultures in Southeast Europe brought significant changes in many aspects of everyday life, in subsistence, settlement patterns, architecture, and also ritual aspects. Technological changes are also very important - the introduction of completely new technologies, such as clay working, or new techniques in existing industries, e.g., lithic, osseous, etc. The osseous industry is especially informative for questions on innovations and traditions, since it was well developed in both the Mesolithic and Neolithic periods. In Starcevo culture, certain Mesolithic traditions may be observed, such as techniques for antler manufacturec however, numerous innovations are also visible, particularly techno-Types of Near Eastern origin such as spatula-spoons, the most characteristic bone techno-Type of the Early Neolithic in South-east Europe, as well as diverse decorative items. Furthermore, new raw materials (bones from domestic animals) are introduced, and new techniques for manufacture and new tools. It is also interesting to observe that, although osseous materials remain the dominant raw material for personal ornaments, they are no longer used for artistic expression.

Polufabrikati, pored toga što potvrđuju postojanje radnog ili radioničkog mesta u naselju za obradu kostiju i rogova, omogućili su i rekonstrukciju tehnologije izrade. Vinčanska koštana industrija sa Divostina je pokazala visok tehnološki nivo, dobro poznavanje i planirano korišćenje sirovina, naročito kad se radi o upotrebi rogova. Značajan udeo rogova ukazuje na prisustvo određenih aktivnosti u naselju o kojima nema drugog arheološkog traga (pre svega, obrada drveta) i sugeriše mogućnost za određeni nivo specijalizacije (sistematsko iskorišćavanje rogova i obradu drveta).
AB  - The site Divostin is located in the vicinity of Kragujevac in central Serbia. It was excavated almost half a century ago and it yielded rich remains of architecture and portable finds, belonging to Starčevo and Vinča cultures. In this paper a revision analysis of the bone tool assemblage belonging to Vinča culture is presented. Among raw materials, mainly medium-sized mammal long bones were represented, followed by red deer antlers and to smaller extent other skeletal elements were represented. Although cattle dominates in the faunal record, mainly ovicaprine bones were used. Generally shed antler were used shed, although few specimens from killed animals were present as well. Typologically, pointed tools dominate, including medium, heavy and fine points (awls, points and needles). They were made of longitudinally split bones, further modified by cutting and burnishing. Among cutting tools, several chisels and wedges were represented, made of both bones and antlers, and also two large cutting tools, axes or adzes, of antlers. Burnishing tools include diverse spatulae, made of different raw materials, most of them fragmented and heavily used. Punching tools included punches of antler tines and large hammers, generally made of basal parts of shed antlers. Some of the hammers had socket for inserting another tool on the other end (hammer-axes). Objects of special use included hafts made of long bones and cylindrical segments of hollowed antler, as well as sleeves, i. e., antler pieces with a socket for inserting tool and place for wooden handle, used as shock absorber. Used astragals with perforations were present as well. Decorative and other non-utilitarian items are almost completely absent; original publication mentioned some shell ornaments, however, their present whereabouts is unknown. Most of these tools were used for processing organic materials (leather, plants, wood). Finally, large number of fragments of bones and antler with traces of manufacture were discovered. Some of them may represent broken parts of tools, but some are without any doubt manufacture debris. Especially noticeable are antler manufacture debris, including two large pieces of antler with traces of hacking when blanks were removed from them. The presence of manufacture debris, as well as finally made numerous and diverse antler artefacts, demonstrate that workshop (or workshops) for antler working existed within the Vinča culture settlement. Other data suggest this was not the only workshop at the site, therefore a hypothesis could be made that excavated portion of the site was a working area. Also, large number of antler tools suggests that collecting, processing and using antler tools (probably for wood working) was an important activity of the Divostin inhabitants.

This is especially noticeable in the case of faunal remains and bone artefacts. Bone artefacts are sometimes treated separately from fauna with emphasis on typological data, or they can be left within the fauna with only a remark on 'other taphonomic traces', thereby overlooking technological features of these artefacts. However, bone industry provides excellent insight into technological choices regarding raw material exploitation, since the availability and mechanical properties of specific materials can be directly observed. In this paper we tried to link bone artefacts with other faunal remains on the basis of a case study of the Vinča culture site at Vitkovo with a special emphasis on the relations between butchering techniques and raw material selection and the relations between the economically most important species and the bones most commonly used in tool manufacture.

AB  - One of the important problems in analysing bone industry is the question of reconstructing the chaîne opératoire and other questions related to the organization of production, workshops and working places, since manufacturing debris often stays unrecognized during excavations, i.e. it is either not collected, or it is stored among faunal remains, awaiting identification and a proper analysis. Also, contextual data are often incomplete, especially when artefacts come from older excavations, when faunal remains were not recognized as important and thus the attention given to them was limited. In this paper a small collection of manufacture debris will be presented, related to the production of decorative items, from the site of Čoka-Kremenjak (Banat, northern Serbia). Although the material originates from excavations carried out one hundred years ago, certain conclusions can be drawn. These objects, along with the material from contemporaneous sites from the south Pannonian plain (Vojvodina region) and central Balkans (Starcevo, Grivac, Anište), helped in reconstructing the chaîne opératoire for making ornamental pieces from bone in Starčevo- Körös-Criş cultural complex and represent indirect evidence for the existence of a workshop within the Čoka settlement. This study raises some important questions for future research, especially those regarding the level of know-how of Neolithic craftspersons and the organization of production.

Studije tehnologije u praistorijskoj arheologiji

AB  - Proučavanje tehnologije oduvek je činilo okosnicu arheologije, kao nauke koja se bavi proučavanjem ljudskih društava na osnovu materijalne kulture. Teorijski i metodološki okviri su se menjali kako se disciplina razvijala, i velikim delom se oslanjaju na antropološke teorije. U ovom radu biće dat pregled aktuelnih metoda i teorijskih pristupa, koji u sve većoj meri zagovaraju sagledavanje tehnologije u širem društvenom i kulturnom kontekstu, i naročito stavljaju težište na razloge odabira pojedinih tehnoloških rešenja u odnosu na druge. Na primeru tehnološkog pristupa u analizi koštane industrije u neolitu centralnog Balkana, biće pokazan značaj proučavanja tehnologije za analizu društvenih i ekonomskih odnosa kod praistorijskih zajednica, kao i pravci za buduća istraživanja.
AB  - Technology studies have always been the most important focus of archaeology, as a science which analyzes human past through the study of material culture. To say that something is technological in archaeology, means to put the concept of technology in the centre of theoretical studies, and to study not only the form of the object, but also the entire sequence of technological factors, from raw material choice, mode of use, up to the reasons for abandonment. The concept of technology in anthropology and archaeology is based on the original meaning of the word τεχνη in ancient Greek, meaning the skill, i. e., to study how something is being done. Such a concept of technology as a skill or mode of doing something was for the first time outlined by the French anthropologist Marcel Mauss, whose starting point was that every technological statement was at the same time social or cultural statement and that technological choices have social foundations. Pierre Lemonnier further developed the anthropology of technology, focusing on the question of technological choices, as well as numerous other anthropologists. In archaeology, the most important contribution to the study of technology was the work of André Leroi-Gourhan, who created the concept of chaîne opératoire, as an analytical tool for studying the mode of creating, using and discarding an artefact, starting with raw material acquisition, mode of manufacture, final form, use (including caching, breaking and repairing) up to the final discarding. It is not only about reconstructing the algorithmic sequence of operations in creating one object, but it is a complex analysis of operational chain within one society which includes the analysis of technological choices. The analyses of technologies today include a variety of different approaches, most of them with emphasis on the cultural and social aspects of technology. The analysis of bone industry in the Early and Middle Neolithic in central Balkans (Starčevo culture), which included not only final objects, but also manufacture debris and semi-finished products, revealed a well developed industry, with a high level of technological knowledge on the properties of raw materials, skillful manufacture, well organized production, as well as possibility of a certain degree of specialization on the micro and macro level (within one settlement and within a group of settlements). Both raw material choices and manufacturing techniques, as well as the final forms, demonstrated a high standardization level. Also certain symbolic value was attributed to some raw materials, and there is a possibility that skill itself was valued. Further analyses of multiple technologies will help in reconstructing the organization of production, social and economic aspects in Neolithic societies, as well as the role of technology in everyday and ritual life.

abstract = "Proučavanje tehnologije oduvek je činilo okosnicu arheologije, kao nauke koja se bavi proučavanjem ljudskih društava na osnovu materijalne kulture. Teorijski i metodološki okviri su se menjali kako se disciplina razvijala, i velikim delom se oslanjaju na antropološke teorije. U ovom radu biće dat pregled aktuelnih metoda i teorijskih pristupa, koji u sve većoj meri zagovaraju sagledavanje tehnologije u širem društvenom i kulturnom kontekstu, i naročito stavljaju težište na razloge odabira pojedinih tehnoloških rešenja u odnosu na druge. Na primeru tehnološkog pristupa u analizi koštane industrije u neolitu centralnog Balkana, biće pokazan značaj proučavanja tehnologije za analizu društvenih i ekonomskih odnosa kod praistorijskih zajednica, kao i pravci za buduća istraživanja., Technology studies have always been the most important focus of archaeology, as a science which analyzes human past through the study of material culture. To say that something is technological in archaeology, means to put the concept of technology in the centre of theoretical studies, and to study not only the form of the object, but also the entire sequence of technological factors, from raw material choice, mode of use, up to the reasons for abandonment. The concept of technology in anthropology and archaeology is based on the original meaning of the word τεχνη in ancient Greek, meaning the skill, i. e., to study how something is being done. Such a concept of technology as a skill or mode of doing something was for the first time outlined by the French anthropologist Marcel Mauss, whose starting point was that every technological statement was at the same time social or cultural statement and that technological choices have social foundations. Pierre Lemonnier further developed the anthropology of technology, focusing on the question of technological choices, as well as numerous other anthropologists. In archaeology, the most important contribution to the study of technology was the work of André Leroi-Gourhan, who created the concept of chaîne opératoire, as an analytical tool for studying the mode of creating, using and discarding an artefact, starting with raw material acquisition, mode of manufacture, final form, use (including caching, breaking and repairing) up to the final discarding. It is not only about reconstructing the algorithmic sequence of operations in creating one object, but it is a complex analysis of operational chain within one society which includes the analysis of technological choices. The analyses of technologies today include a variety of different approaches, most of them with emphasis on the cultural and social aspects of technology. The analysis of bone industry in the Early and Middle Neolithic in central Balkans (Starčevo culture), which included not only final objects, but also manufacture debris and semi-finished products, revealed a well developed industry, with a high level of technological knowledge on the properties of raw materials, skillful manufacture, well organized production, as well as possibility of a certain degree of specialization on the micro and macro level (within one settlement and within a group of settlements). Both raw material choices and manufacturing techniques, as well as the final forms, demonstrated a high standardization level. Also certain symbolic value was attributed to some raw materials, and there is a possibility that skill itself was valued.

AB  - U radu su analizirani ukrasi od koštanih sirovina sa lokaliteta Starčevo-Grad, jedan segment inače slabo poznate koštane industrije starčevačke kulture. Ukupno dvadeset predmeta uglavnom potiče sa iskopavanja sa početka 20. veka, i čuvaju se u Narodnom muzeju u Beogradu i Narodnom muzeju u Pančevu. Od koštanih sirovina zastupljene su ljušture školjki, kosti, rogovi i zubi. Ljušture školjki su najbrojnije i prisutne su dve vrste - spondilus i dentalijum (Spondylus, Dentalium sp.). Od kostiju, uglavnom se koriste kosti krupnih ungulata, verovatno od govečeta, dok se ostale kosti, rogovi i zubi, koriste sporadično. Tehnološki posmatrano, prisutni su predmeti kod kojih je prvobitnom komadu sirovine malo ili nimalo izmenjen oblik, kao i predmeti kod kojih je sirovina dugotrajno obra đi - vana i na kojima je vidljivo veliko ulaganje vremena i velika veština majstora. Od tipova predmeta zastupljeni su privesci, perle, narukvice, kružni diskovi i prstenje, kao neobični predmeti, koji su verovatno služili kao neka vrsta kopče. Među privescima, posebno se izdvaja jedan loptasti privezak sa perforacijom u gornjem delu, izrađen od kosti. Još je nađen jedan oštećeni pravougaoni privezak od korteksa roga, kao i nedovršeni privezak, zub sa započetom perforacijom. Od perli, poznate su samo perle od dentalijum školjki, minimalno ili nimalo promenjenog prirodnog oblika. Od narukvica, nađena su tri fragmentovana primerka od spondilus školjki. Nađen je jedan predmet koji je mogao predstavljati pravi prsten, izrađen od kosti, kao i nekoliko predmeta slične forme, u vidu diska ili kružne pločice sa rupom u sredini, koji, međutim, nisu mogli biti nošeni kao pravo prstenje. Nekoliko je izrađeno od kostiju, tako što su veće duge kosti transverzalno deljene na komade, ali je jedan izrađen od spondilus školjke. Peta grupa predmeta obuhvata dva podtipa. Prvi je podtip kopči u vidu otvorene narukvice. Svi su predmeti fragmentovani, tako da je teško rekonstruisati njihov prvobitni oblik. Svi su izrađeni od većih dugih kostiju, verovatno od govečeta, i imaju pažljivo oblikovane glave i ispolirane površine. Drugi podtip predstavljen je neobičnim predmetom u vidu tankog štapića sa kružnom glavom, od kosti, koji je ne samo pažljivo ispoliran, već ima i intenzivno uglačane površine od upotrebe, što ukazuje da je bio u dugom kontaktu sa mekim materijalima, kao što su tkanina i koža. Ovi su predmeti mogli biti nošeni kao pojedinačni ili kombinovani ukrasni predmeti (deo ogrlice, narukvice i sl.), prišiveni na odeću, ili su imali funkciju kopče ili dugmeta. Izuzev predmeta od spondilusa, ostali su verovatno izrađeni lokalno, čemu u prilog govori i polufabrikat od zuba. Opet izuzev predmeta od spondilusa, forme pokazuju kako bliskoistočne uticaje, tako i određene lokalne specifičnosti, odnosno odlike starčevačke kulture. Simboličko značenje ovih predmeta moglo bi biti vezano za same sirovine od kojih su napravljeni, odnosno, moglo je biti povezano sa belom bojom, ili sa poreklom od živih životinja, što je posebno upadljivo u slučaju predmeta koji su izrađeni isključivo od kostiju krupnih ungulata.
AB  - Bone industry, or the manufacture of objects from osseous materials, is less known part of prehistoric technologies. This paper will focus on one segment of the Starčevo culture industry from osseous materials, on objects used for decoration purposes. Total number of twenty pieces from eponymous site of Starčevo - Grad were analyzed from technological point of view - the choice of raw materials, techniques of production, final forms, use and discard. The analysis revealed a varied, but careful selection of raw materials, probably those bearing special significance, and the existence of local production by skillful craftsmen. As to the forms, some influences from Early Neolithic of the Near East and Greece may be observed, but there are also some original forms, characteristic for the Early and Middle Neolithic in the central Balkans and south Pannonia.

AB  - The Iron Gates area (Serbia and Romania) is well known for its extraordinary Mesolithic finds, first discovered almost fifty years ago, which initiated still ongoing debate on the relations between foragers and farmers and the very origin of Neolithic communities in this region. The questions regarding relative and absolute chronology and social relations have received the most attention, while some aspects of the material culture are still not analysed in detail, especially when it comes to the sites on the right (Serbian) bank of the Danube. Most sites are situated in the Upper and Lower Gorge, and the only site with an excavated Mesolithic sequence downstream from the Gorge is Kula near Mihajlovac. In this paper a small collection of about fifty bone and antler artefacts from Kula is analysed. This is the first analysis of the material from the right bank of Danube to be focused on the bone industry only. The analysis incorporates the questions of raw material choice, technique of manufacture and typological classification. Antler was the dominant raw material, but also large and medium-sized ungulate bones were used for making pointed tools, projectile tips, chisels, wedges, percussion tools, hafts and sleeves. They were made at the site and most were used for hunting and woodworking. Decorative or non-utilitarian objects were not discovered. The limited tool-type range, along with other archaeological evidence, suggests that Mesolithic settlement at Kula may have had a different character from those in the Upper Gorge.
