THE FLOW project aims to address the long-distance connections in the Copper and Bronze Age of the Central Balkans, as one of the key issues in the studies of mobility and migration in the European late prehistory. Its premise is to contextualize the presence of a set of artifacts made of copper, obsidian, ceramics, and bronze, which have been commonly considered in isolation, in order to evaluate the complex links between production based on locally available raw materials and imported objects/raw materials from other regions.
The members of the project team are senior researchers from the Institute of Archaeology, Vinča Institute of Nuclear Sciences, and the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade. Each of the team members provides a set of skills and expertise which are necessary for the successful realization of the project. The project also engages young researchers and Ph.D. students and collaborates with several institutions and researchers from Austria, Germany, Poland, Italy, and the United States.
U novoj epizodi serijala „Ideje" arheolozi nas upoznaju sa načinom na koji će istražiti ključna sociološka pitanja kada je reč o međusobnom odnosu i eventualnom kretanju zajednica koje su naseljavale teritoriju Balkana u periodu između petog i drugog milenijuma pre naše ere, koje predstavljaju jedan od ključnih faktora u socio-kulturnoj transformaciji društva tokom kasnije praistorije.
