Experiments In Viminacium 2013
In the week between the 18th and the 22nd of March, two experiments shall be conducted at Viminacium.
The first one includes planting (ungrafted) grapevine according to Roman customs. The planting shall be made next to elm trees along the parking lot next to the Domus, during the week of descending moon. It shall include some thirty young grapevines.
The second one includes a Romanof the Mala Kopašnica – Sase type, typical for the area of the Middle Balkans from the 1st to the 3rd century AD. A similar was already conducted in 2011, although without cremating flesh and simulating a bustum. The intention now is to provide carrion for this purpose and to make a stake. Cremated remains shall only later be transferred to the grave pit.
