The Balkan Cave Archaeology website is now officially one of the largest on-line databases for archaeological sites in the Balkans. After two weeks in the field and more than 240 man-hours in the libraries, we are happy to announce that our website database now holds forms for 91 caves with specific Neolithic evidence.
After two months on a beta format, our website is gradually going fully functional. Now caves from Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Bulgaria are finally on-line. The cave logs from Montenegro and Albania are now almost complete with only a few still to be added from Croatia and Greece.
Of course we haven't forgot Romania! This season is, however, coming to an end, but we are looking to index Romanian caves next winter if we manage to secure more funding for our project.
Interactive maps with all the countries will be added soon!
Except from geomorphological, chronological and archaeological data, the maps of the caves are now gradually appearing on-line. Check the maps of the caves such as Vaganska, Pupicina and Crvena Stijena. Due to a funding shortage the digitalising and uploading of the cave maps unfortunately had to stop before our entire catalogue of caves had been processed. We are looking forward to receive more funding next year in order to finalise the mammoth job that we started.
Yesterday we spent one of our final days with a visit to the Acropolis (where the picture below was taken). In the meantime though, we are still out looking for caves. Stay tuned for our updates!
