Iron-Age-Danube: The archaeological heritage of the Hallstatt Period

Monumental Landscapes of the Early Iron Age in the Danube Basin

Exploration of the rich archaeological heritage of the Early Iron Age (Hallstatt Period) using the most modern methods is the goal of the project ‘Iron Age Danube’, undertaken as of January 1st, 2017, by the Universalmuseum Joanneum in collaboration with 11 project partners and 9 associated partners from 5 countries.

The activities range from devising an international strategy for supra-regional protection and for the sustainable usage of archaeological landscapes, to archaeological field research with the latest technical devices as part of an international research camp, and to new digital and analogue offerings for tourists in selected micro-regions. These include – besides the most significant Hallstatt Period sites in Hungary, Croatia and Slovenia – Großklein and Strettweg, the site where the world-famous chariot was found.     

Iron Age Danube is subsidised within the framework of the EU programme Interreg Danube Transnational Programme with EFRE funds in the amount of € 2,169,200.00
