Thesis

Exploring Human – Landscape interaction in Neolithic Balkans: Evidence from caves in the Western Balkans and Greece

My research focuses on how people perceive, understood and finally inter-act with their surroundings, their natural environment during the Neolithic in the area that we call today, Balkans. In order to discuss this, I decide to use caves as case studies. And in order to examine the Neolithic caves of the Balkans I construct a regional chronological model, I demonstrate a novel cave mapping methodology and I built on existing human-landscape interaction theories. My Thesis is this travel through theory, literature, excavation publications, technology and software and finally caves
