  • Dedication to the Numen Augusti from Privlaka near Nin (archival research)

    • Authors: Martina Dubolnić Glavan, Miroslav Glavičić
      Pages: 9 - 29
      Abstract: In the early 20th century, in the houses of the Grbića Stanovi hamlet in Privlaka near Nin, professor Luka Jelić, PhD, found and documented two fragments of a monument with partially preserved dedication to the imperial numen (Numini Imp. Caesaris Augusti…). Documentation about this valuable find constitutes a part of Jelić’s “Heritage“ kept in the Archaeological Museum in Split. The authors analyze the data recorded by Luka Jelić and observe them in the context of manifestations of honoring the imperial cult in the area of the municipium of Aenona, as well as in the wider area of the Roman Empire.

  • Dedication to the imperial family's genius (Genius domus Augusta)
           from Oneum

    • Authors: Ivana Jadrić-Kučan, Ivana Banovac
      Pages: 31 - 59
      Abstract: This paper provides a picture of imperial worship in Roman Oneum, wherein the primary focus is on an altar dedicated to Divus Augustus, the goddess Roma and the imperial family’s Genius (Genius domus Augusta). This is a rather intriguing cult artefact, not only because of its multiple dedications, but also due to the fact that it was installed by an auxiliary military unit, Cohors I Gallica Voluntariorum, which is also the first time this cohort was mentioned in the province of Dalmatia.

  • An unpublished inscription and some notes on ancient topography of Preko
           on the island of Ugljan

    • Authors: Božana Maletić, Matteo Pola
      Pages: 61 - 79
      Abstract: The historical background of Ugljan is closely related to the development of Zadar as a nearby urban center. Centuriation remains, recorded across the entire island, are particularly significant, as well as ancient residential and agricultural hubs (villae rusticae), the one in Muline being the most renowned. One such complex was recognized in the Preko settlement, while its various adaptations testify to life continuity from the 2nd to the early 6th century. A recent archaeological field survey in Preko enabled the identification of an unpublished Roman funerary inscription at the cemetery of the church of Our Lady of the Rosary. The paper presents its reading and interpretation within the historical panorama of the island. The form and characteristics of the inscription date to the period between the late 1st and the first half of the 2nd century. The same cemetery yielded a late antique sarcophagus with a gable roof that, alongside an impost capital with an engraved cross on the front of the present-day church, suggests a possibility of the presence of an earlier early Christian church. It was probably dedicated to St Andrew, as indicated by a hagiotoponym of this region, used until the Early Modern Period. The present-day church of Our Lady of the Rosary, built in the 18th century is as well, decorated by a Roman relief, used as an architrave of the front door. All the aforementioned elements enable noticing a trend of significant interest in the Preko, from the Roman period to the present, with an especially interesting phase of Late Antiquity.

  • Workshop Stamps on Italic Terra Sigillata from Zaton near Zadar

    • Authors: Dino Taras
      Pages: 81 - 117
      Abstract: The paper deals with some of the archaeological finds collected in the systematic underwater excavations of the ancient port in Zaton at Cape Kremenjača, conducted by the Department of Underwater Archaeology of the Archaeological Museum in Zadar. The excavations were organized intermittently from the late 1960s to 2019. In this long-term research, the port yielded a number of diverse archaeological finds and the remains of three sewn-plank boats, as well as the breakwater remains. Analyzed pottery comprises fragments of various types of Italic and northern Italic sigillata production bearing workshop stamps, recovered in the excavations from the late 1960s to 2012. Examination of the workshop stamps found on the seabed of Zaton resulted in a list of known workshop stamps on 39 plate sherds and 38 cup sherds, as well as some hitherto unknown types, with photographs and outlines arranged in tables by vessel types. Northern Italic workshops are dominant among analyzed vessels, though unidentified
      workshops are actually most numerous. The workshop with the stamp M. S. MOSCHVS produced most examples in the assemblage.

  • Rescue Archaeological Excavations of a part of the Maritime Villa in
           Ribnjak Bay near Valbandon

    • Authors: Kristina Gergeta Sotončić, Teodora Godinović
      Pages: 119 - 141
      Abstract: A part of thermal complex with floor heating system and water supply has been uncovered during a month of rescue archaeological excavations conducted in 2015 in the area of a maritime villa segment extending along the northern part of Ribnjak bay near Valbandon. Room floors were covered with mosaics, marble-lined walls were adorned with frescoes, and ceilings with stucco decorations. Building of the investigated part of the villa dates to the 1st century. In the 2nd and 3rd centuries the rooms were remodeled by building new walls to partition the 1st phase spaces or the existing walls were reinforced. Numismatic finds corroborate final abandonment of this area in the 4th century. Archaeological investigation was accompanied by preventive protection procedure of mosaics and wall mortar.

  • Keramički nalazi i ostali pokretni arheološki materijal s lokaliteta
           Ošlje – Gradac

    • Authors: Ana Karađole, Nikša Grbić
      Pages: 143 - 201
      Abstract: Istraživanje kasnoantičke kule na položaju Gradac u selu Ošlju rezultiralo je pronalaskom pokretnog arheološkog materijala koji je tema ovog rada. Većina predmeta pripada razdoblju kasne antike, ali prepoznat je i brončanodobni, odnosno željeznodobni materijal, kao i helenistički koji nam svjedoče o aktivnostima na ovom položaju. Kasnoantički materijal tipološki je detaljno obrađen, a osim kuhinjske keramike koja je proizvod lokalnih radionica, kod ostalih je ulomaka uglavnom riječ o importu radionica iz dvaju glavnih kasnoantičkih proizvodnih i distribucijskih središta, sjeverne Afrike i istočnomediteranskog areala.

  • Late antique and early medieval cemetery in Novigrad.Preliminary research

    • Authors: Kristina Gergeta Sotončić
      Pages: 203 - 231
      Abstract: Rescue archaeological excavations were conducted in the area of the former annex of the Stella Maris Hotel in Novigrad from late April to early June 2021. The excavations resulted in defining the area of spreading of the late antique and early medieval sub divo cemetery that surrounded the church of St Andrew north of the present-day parish church. The graves were damaged by soil tillage, and some time later, by the construction of a tourism-related building in the early 1960s. Several grave typologies have been determined. Burials in row graves are dominant. The graves are made of undressed limestone slabs, broken unevenly, of various sizes, laid one next to another, and stuck vertically in the earth. There are also burials in partially walled graves or simple laying out of the deceased on the bedrock. Remains of two late antique amphorae and numerous amphora sherds found in refuse pits suggest the earliest phase of burials. Position of the graves in the southern part of the excavated area was defined by drystone walls that were overlain by graves in the subsequent phase of burials. Graves are dated to the period from the early 5th to the 7th century in terms of typology of small finds dominated by coarse kitchenware and amphorae.

  • Exposure to Bone Injuries in the Farming and Herding Populations in
           Medieval and Early Modern Croatia

    • Authors: Anita Adamić Hadžić
      Pages: 233 - 265
      Abstract: Since the dawn of humanity, people have been engaged in some sort of agriculture. Due to a number of challenges and perils that it brings, presently it is classified among three most hazardous occupations. On the one hand, farming implies use of various agricultural implements, climbing ladders, silos etc., while transhumant herding refers to everyday contact with big animals and moving in karsty landscape. The main aim of this research was to determine if there is a difference in the pattern and frequencies of antemortem traumas on long bones between dominantly farming populations and dominantly herding populations. The frequencies of traumas on male and female population in the samples were also investigated. All perimortem traumas in the samples were caused by intentional interpersonal violence and therefore were left out of this research. Three composite samples were compared. The first sample comprises 230 skeletons from the sites dated to the Early and High Middle Ages (9th - 13th century), the second sample includes 401 skeletons recovered from the sites dating to the High and Late Middle Ages (13th - 16th century), and in the third sample are 351 skeleton from the Vlach cemeteries dating to the Late Middle Ages and Early Modern Period (14th - 18th century). The results have shown that the populations in all three samples were exposed to roughly the same risk of suffering injuries while performing agricultural works despite the fact that the first and second sample are farming populations, and the third sample consists of transhumant herders. The results have also shown that there was a strict division of labor between males and females, whereby males performed physically harder and more demanding works than the females. In the third sample,males and females worked equally hard, most likely with an aim of adapting to new living conditions as soon as possible.

  • The Ottoman Empire Coins from Northern Dalmatia

    • Authors: Mato Ilkić, Dejan Filipčić
      Pages: 267 - 289
      Abstract: The paper discusses 23 Ottoman coins found in 16 sites in northern Dalmatia. Chronologically, they belong to the period from the second reign of Sultan Mehmed II, the Conqueror (1444–1446 and 1451–1481) all the way to the Egyptian coin bearing the name of Sultan Abdul Hamid II (1876–1909). These numismatic finds can be assigned to one of several different phases during which they came to northern Dalmatia: pre-Ottoman, Ottoman and post-Ottoman. The first phase includes the akçes of Sultan Mehmed II and Sultan Selim I (1512–1520). The second phase involves coins from the period of Ottoman rule, which lasted a little over a century and a half in the hinterland of northern Dalmatia. The third phase is represented by mangirs of Suleiman II (1687–1691), which were brought to northern Dalmatia shortly after the end of Ottoman rule, while the Morean War (1684–1699) was still in full flow. They are followed by numismatic finds from a much later period. Two specimens are associated with historical events related to northern Dalmatia and Egypt. One was minted for Sultan Selim III (1789–1807), and the second for Sultan Abdul Hamid II (1876–1909). The first can be related to the French intervention in Egypt in 1798, and the second with refugees fleeing from Dugi Otok to El Shatt in 1944–1945.

  • Forgotten Cultural Heritage – the Church of Our Lady of Health in
           Gornja Brela

    • Authors: Silvia Bekavac, Dora Štublin
      Pages: 291 - 321
      Abstract: The Church of Our Lady of Health was built at the beginning of the 18th century, and was in use until 1939, when services ceased to be held there. It is a relatively small single-nave building with a rectangular floor plan, without an apse and arched by a masonry barrel vault. Despite having been declared an immovable cultural heritage asset, due to its dilapidated condition, neglect and the possibility of complete collapse the church urgently needed conservation and restoration. For this reason, a restoration project has been launched and is being carried out by researchers from the Department of Archaeology and the Department of Art History of the University of Zadar in cooperation with the Brolanenses Association, the Public Institution Biokovo Nature Park and the Municipality of Brela. By using a different range of interdisciplinary methods, the work reconstructs a complex research process of valorisation and revitalisation of cultural heritage: from the moment of the construction of the church, studying the historical circumstances in which its cultural heritage exists and ultimately decays, to the creation of a statics study and a proposal for the restoration of the building, whose monumental value, regardless of its “modest” architecture and non-canonical historical and artistic distinctiveness, was confirmed by its permanent protection by the Ministry of Culture and Media of the Republic of Croatia.
