Celts, Romans and Germans. Countryside settlements and seats of nobility. (VEGA 1/0243/17, 2017-2020). Head of the project: doc. PhDr. Vladimír Varsik, CSc.)

More about the project: Recent excavations of Roman architecture at the former acropolis of Bratislava’s oppidum (at Bratislava Castle) were astounding discoveries for the general public as well as experts. They confirmed that the new Mediterranean empire (Romans) had very early interest in occupying Middle Danube region. Towards the beginning of the 1st century AD, the Empire reached the south bank of Danube. Attention of Rome turned towards regions north of the river due to activities of Germanic tribes (Quads). Relative to previous Celtic civilisation, arrival of this Germanic population initially represented a cultural regress. However, the Quads eventually established contacts with the Roman world and thus acquainted themselves with comforts of their culture. The aim of this project is to evaluate the influence of Roman culture and acculturation of the Quadic world. We do this by focusing on utilisation of Roman products and imitation of Roman lifestyle in various Celtic, Roman and German settlements in SW-Slovakia.
