We are pleased to invite you to participate in this international and inter/transdisciplinary conference composed of lectures, panel discussions and exhibition. EXARC is one of the Conference Partners. The Conference takes place on 13 & 14 March 2015 in Skopje, Macedonia.

The prehistoric period in the Balkans undoubtedly attracts attention related to the questions about the spatial and temporal boundaries of the ancient societies, showing the common patterns, or maybe interweaving cultures. The conference theme “Settlements, culture and population dynamics in Balkan prehistory” is designed to encourage and inspire different ways of thinking about the past in the prehistory of the Balkan peninsula.

The main aim of the conference is to gather the experts from the Balkans and wider, and to discuss the latest achievements in the field of archeology. The topics will be focused on main aspects of Balkan prehistory: methodological and theoretical frameworks for interpreting the archaeological record, artifact analyses and related disciplines. The conference offers the opportunity to get up close to Balkan prehistory and to discover some of the mysteries or challenges about this enigmatic period.

The main topics of the conference are:
• Landscape, settlements and human interaction
• Social relation and cultural dynamics of societies
• Interpretation of cults, rites and symbols
• Technological achievements
• Art and material culture
• Bio-archaeological perspectives
