Exhibition on non-invasive prospection methods in archaeology
Location: Hungary, Pécs, Káptalan utca 4. Múzeum Galéria
Open from 22 February till 22 August 2012, Tuesday to Sunday, 10AM-18PM
The exhibition gives a snapshot picture of the results of research achieved mainly through non-destructive archaeological prospection methods since 2004 by the Department of Archaeology of the Janus Pannonius Museum. Systematic non-invasive research in Baranya County, Hungary started with the EU Culture 2000 "European Landscapes, Past, Present, and Future" grant in 2004, and has continued since with support from the National Cultural Fund of Hungary, and lately from ArcLand.
The exhibition comprises an introduction on methodology, and our various non-destructive research projects in a chronological order on a series of 22 posters, from Late Neolithic rondels up to the Late Medieval - Early Modern Age battlefield of Mohács. (Topics: Methodology, Neolithic rondels and other earthworks, Early Bronze Age fortified settlements, Pécs Cathedral GPR survey, GPR survey of a 12th century Benedictine Abbey, 1526 Mohács battlefield research project) The exhibition is living and up-to-date, so three posters are reserved for our ongoing, ArcLand-related LiDAR and digital infrared photography survey to be completed in two weeks: a poster on LiDAR methodology, results of the LiDAR survey of the Jakab-hegy Iron Age hillfort and barrow cemetery, and a poster on digital IR photography results will be added by the end of April 2012.
The exhibition catalogue is available in Hungarian and in English.
