About the project


The project PaleoDiversiStyria uses findings from archaeology and archaeobotany to promote the understanding of the archaeological heritage and agricultural tradition in southern Styria and northern Slovenia. The following measures are planned: 1. Identification of ancient plant species in archaeological contexts. 2. Revitalisation of the cultivation and reutilisation of autochthonous crop species, 3. Development of agricultural products for tourism. PaleoDiversiStyria is subsidised by the EU programme Interreg V-A Slovenia-Austria 2014-2020 with EFRE funds in the amount of € 1,122,725.16.
