Argos on the Axios, an ancient Macedonian colony

Deadline
2013-09-10

The specific goal of this field research project is the survey of the entire area of the ridge called Vidin Grad in the Middle Vardar Valley, not far away from the well renowned Hellenistic and Roman town of Stobi. This site is known thanks to the work of epigraphists and archaeologists in the middle decades of the past century. It’s been tentatively related to an ancient town known from the historical sources as Argos. Because of its name, size and location it has been suggested that this settlement, along with a few other centers in the Middle Vardar Valley were colonies established by the late Antigonids (the last dynasty that ruled ancient Macedonia) in the 3rd and the first half of the 2nd century BC. However, the body of archaeological evidence available so far doesn’t allow one to reject or accept this thesis. On the site Vidin Grad in particular, research has come to a standstill over the past few decades. Earlier research mostly consisted of study of epigraphic monuments and architectural sculpture, architectural survey and unsystematic gathering of surface artifacts. The importance of this site and the poor degree of research gave the main incentive to instigate a more systematic field research. In addition we point to the fact that the site is situated in the immediate catchment of a modern village and has been attacked both by agricultural activities and illicit digging.

Central America - PSU Chiquilistagua, Nicaragua Archaeological Field School - 2015

Deadline
2015-05-29

Summer 2015 will mark the second year of the Chiquilistagua Archaeological Field School directed by Dr. Justin Lowry (George Mason University) and Jason Paling (co-director -Plymouth State University). The goals of the Chiquilistagua Archaeological Project are to explore and investigate settlements in the so-called “intermediate zone,” a diverse ecological and cultural area that stretches from the southern Maya periphery in Honduras and El Salvador to the northern edges of the Great Nicoya region. Their investigations in Nicaragua are concentrated primarily in central Nicaragua from the southwestern edge of Lake Managua to the Pacific Ocean. The intent of the project is to test the validity of models proposing an association of this area with the economic and political periphery of the southern Mesoamerican people and cultures. Archaeological investigations of a recently discovered pre–Columbian settlement in Chiquilistagua, Nicaragua will help to contribute to our understanding of the variety of cultural diversity found throughout Central America. Our long term research goal is to document household activities among sites located near and around the present day town of Chiquilistagua; a settlement located approximately six kilometers southwest of the present day capital of Managua. The town and site are located on the border between the Nicaragua Depression and the Pacific Volcanic Cordillera
