ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES

Archaeological heritage gives us access to ancient history and helps us understand social and technological evolution. It is the source of information about human history and our environment. This material vestige is important reminder of where we came from, who we are and who we want to be. In order to preserve archaeological sites and present them to public we use conservation, restoration, reconstruction and adaptation methods.

Preservation means keeping the present state and stopping further deterioration. It comprehends slight changes of site. Restoration is process of returning into previous known state without implementation of new materials. Reconstruction differs from restoration in implementation of new materials into substance. New materials include use of material taken from some other site. Adaptation is site modification to meet existing or desired use.

All of these preservation methods of archaeological sites we executed on locations: Marusinca, Klis-Klapavica, Salona and similar sites in Croatia.
