On the 13th and the 14th of March 2015, archaeologists from the Republic of Macedonia organized a conference entitled "Settlements, culture and population dynamics in Balkan prehistory".
The conference venue was at the EU Info Center Skopje. The main sponsor of the Balkan Prehistoric Conference 2015 was Open Educational Resources in Macedonia. There were more than eighty participants, from Bulgaria, Great Britain, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Croatia and Macedonia.
The prehistoric period in the Balkans undoubtedly attracts attention about the spatial and temporal boundaries of the ancient societies, showing the common patterns, or maybe interweaving cultures. The conference theme was 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 was to gather 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 archaeological record, artifact analyses and related disciplines.
The EXARC board considered this a very good opportunity to meet and make contact with archaeologists and even archaeology students from the region. During this conference, Milica travelled to Skopje, with an interesting task to represent EXARC and introduce it to as many participants as possible.
