Research of Viminacium and its Suburban Zones
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents the results of long-lasting research of the archaeological site of Viminacium. Since 1882, when the first excavations were conducted, until today, the most explored were the necropolises, with almost 14,000 graves, while research of the legionary fort and the city itself only really gained focus in this century. At the beginning of the 21st century, a new phase of the Viminacium examination began when multidisciplinary research started, including, among other things, remote sensing and anthropological, archaeobotanical, archeozoological and physical-chemical analysis. Systematic excavations of the amphitheatre are now finished, while those of legionary fort are still ongoing.
