Digital Archaeology

With the initiative "Digital Archaeology", we have put together a program that provides you digital insights into our recently completed international projects.

 

InterArch-Steiermark and PalaeoDiversiStyria

Man and its landscape

 

A cultural landscape is a human-shaped and formed landscape that has been created over time and is subject to constant change. The extent and impact of human intervention on nature are influenced by the cultural framework as well as the economic and social background of the population.

 

A wide range of information about individual sites, archaeological objects and cultural landscapes of Styria and northeastern Slovenia can be found on the homepage www.interarch-steiermark.eu. In addition, there is information obtained from bioarchaeological studies, but also information about tourist and culinary offers. These data were collected as part of the EU projects InterArch-Steiermark, BorderArch-Steiermark and PalaeoDiversiStyria as well as by the archaeological association Hengist and provide insights into the rich archaeological heritage of Styria and Štajerska.

Several short films were designed as part of the PalaeoDiversiStyria project.

 

Iron-Age-Danube

 

Over the past few decades, European archaeological heritage gained much attention. Prominent archaeological sites have been linked to wider transnational networks that serve to protect, promote and use them for tourism. Imposing and attractive, but very fragile prehistoric landscapes of the Danube region have so far received relatively little attention and have been poorly integrated into cultural tourism.

 

The Iron-Age-Danube project focuses on monumental archaeological landscapes of the Early Iron Age, characterized by, e.g., fortified hilltop settlements and large tumulus cemeteries, from the era between roughly the 9th–4th cent. BC. At that time, the Danube region was part of a cultural phenomenon called the Eastern-Hallstatt circle.

 

You can learn more about the Iron Age legacy of Austria, Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia by visiting our database, following the digital guide, testing the eLearning tool or watching the short films provided.
