The Fourth Field Research

The fourth field research in the framework of the project From Barbarians to Christians and Rhomaioi. The Process of Byzantinization in the Central Balkans (late 10th – mid-13th century) was carried out between October 15th and 23rd with the support of the Science Fund of the Republic of Serbia, Program Ideas, Grant No. 7748349. The research included church monuments in the area of Ohrid, Struga, Prespa and Kastoria. This concerns a rather extensive and typologically diverse group of churches, whose construction is linked in the scholarship to the Middle Byzantine period (9th-13th century). In addition to the church monuments, members of the project team also visited some significant fortresses in the given area (Ohrid and Kastoria) and the Museum in Ohrid.
