The relative activities of the members of the principal radioactive families, with respect to the initial activities of chosen
parents were calculated for a wide range of time intervals. Tables and graphs that are useful for radiochemistry, source standardization
and chronology are presented.
Numerous finds, excavated from the probably isolated grave along the Lower Tisza, were taken to the Vojvođanski Muzej (Novi Sad, Serbia). The grave can be dated unambiguously to the second half of the 8th century. Drawing a parallel between the silver cup and the 8th-century dish of the Nagyszentmiklós treasure has a considerable significance both for the chronologic and cultural identification of the latter, and for the Avar-Age chronology of tendril decoration with punched background as well. Accordingly, this decoration had been around already in the 7th century, which is an equally important condition for the chronology of the late Avar Period, and especially for the research of the question of continuity between the middle and late periods.
The importance of inscriptional material in the study of Vulgar Latin and Romance linguistics is well known. This is true in the case of Sardinia, too: the history and the chronology of some phonetic developments of the Sardinian language (e.g., Lat. qu, gu ≯ b (b); the prosthesis of i- before s- + consonant) can be better explained with the help of Latin inscriptional sources discovered in the island.
The campaigns of Augustus in the Carpathian basin, connected with the occupation of Pannonia (Illyricum) have been discussed in many papers. The general was Tiberius, but also a Vinicius and Cornelius Lentulus are mentioned in the sources. Many different and controversial solutions have been proposed for the chronology, the extension and the process of the wars. After having summarized the different proposals again this paper returns to one of them which has on the basis of the newer observations the highest probability.
The present study discusses a single buckle type, namely the variant that has the loop and plate cast in one and is provided with an attachment spike, representing a separate technological group within consciously employed forms. Assigned to the heraldic style in the Martinovka group, these buckles enjoyed a long use. The distribution and chronology of this buckle type shed light on the cultural contacts between the territories (cultural peripheries) on the northern fringes of the Mediterranean.
Mortaria were used in Pannonia in the entire Roman period, but they changed in form and material from time to time. Potter’s stamps indicate that some of them were imported goods, but they were mostly local products. The article deals with mortaria found in Zalalövő (ancient Salla) between 1973 and 2005 and tries to draw a picture of the chronology and the provenance of the different
This paper focuses on the uses and forms of the relative pronouns as evidenced from the Latin epigraphy in Lusitania. Inscriptions are considered from the 1st to the 8th century AD, with special attention being paid to the future developments in the Portuguese language. To this purpose, other in- scriptions or documents of a different nature dated to later chronologies are also considered as a point of comparison.
Girdle-hangers represent one of the most characteristic elements of the female graves in the Merovingian culture. Concerning their structure and decoration a great variety can be observed. A particular variant was identified in the Carpathian Basin characterized by the decoration with hinged plates. The present paper is an attempt to catalogue and analyze the finds of this kind coming from the Gepidic Period, based on the published material. The few discoveries belonging to the Early Avar Period are also included. Emphasis is placed on the typology, chronology and geographical distribution as well as on the possibilities of reconstruction and interpretation of the female dress accessorized with girdle-hanger.
The Somogyszil cemetery had become known in 1964, when a local resident reported the finds. The site was excavated by Balázs Draveczky uncovering 148 late Roman graves up to 1968. The whole cemetery was published in 1979 by Alice Sz. Burger. Our research agenda focuses on the spatial organization of the burial grounds used by the province’s rural population as well as on burial customs (funerary rites, grave and burial types), chronology and the mapping of local and non-local tendencies. During the critical re-assessment of the cemetery, we have found that the establishment and use of this late Roman burial ground could be connected to a heterogeneous community.
