Program Description

The Romans in Illyricum field school project enables students to take part in an ongoing Roman dig, to learn about the Roman conquest, archaeology and civilization of the eastern Adriatic, and to visit the beautiful Mediterranean towns & coast of Montenegro and Croatia. The field school excavations in 2018 will take place in the central residential and trading neighborhood of the Roman city, in the area of recently excavated temple of Jupiter (2nd c. CE) near the Cardo Maximus. Three field school sessions are available: two two-week sessions and one four-week session.
The archaeological site of Doclea has attracted the attention of researchers since the 19th century. The first archaeological excavations took place in 1890 – 1892 directed by the Russian researcher Pavle Rovinski by the order of king Nikola I of Montenegro. In 1913, Piero Sticotti published the book "Roman town Doclea in Montenegro", which is so far the only monograph of the archaeological site. In the 1960s the necropoli of Doclea were excavated by the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts. After that, only small-scale excavation projects have been conducted at various sectors of the site.
