Luminosus Limes


The Luminosus Limes: Geographical, Ethnic, Social and Cultural Frontiers in Late Antiquity summer university organized by the Central European University (CEU-Budapest) in Budapest, between the 30th of June and the 5th of July 2014 offered a multidisciplinary and theoretical approach concerning the issue of limes as cultural, symbolic and spatial entity from the perspective of archaeology, medieval studies, social and cultural history, art, theology, and literature with the contribution of well-known and famous researchers all around the world.  Our team was also represented at this summer school by a colleague. The intensive and high-level lectures and field trips helped our colleague to understand the notion of  limes from a multiperspective and more nuanced point of view, which  also urge us to enlarge the spectrum of our perception about the phenomenon in the researched area.

Four members of our team participated at one of the most prestigious international forum of Roman archaeologists, organized annually in Hungary. The VIII. Fiatal Római Korosok Konferenciája (The 8th Conference of the Young Roman Archaeologists), organized by the Centre for National Cultural Heritage of the Hungarian National Museum, held this year in Budapest, between the 24th and the 26th of April, hosted many interesting papers dealing with a variety of subjects on Roman culture, history, archeology. Our team held two presentations: one focused on problems related to the location of the auxiliary units in the forts from Mureș County and their connection with the stamped ceramic building material, while the other presented the old and the recent data concerning the Roman fort from Brâncovenești, stressing on its complexity.
