Encounters on borders of worlds: The Kaptol group in the Early Iron Age communication network / Hrvoje Potrebica, Janja Mavrović Mokos.

By: Potrebica, Hrvoje.
Contributor(s): Mavrović Mokos, Janja [aut].
Material type: ArticleArticlePublisher: 2016Description: 39-65 str.Subject(s): cultural transfer, prestigious goods, princely graves, organized settlement, Hallstatt In: Cultural Encounters in Iron Age Europe Urednici: I. Armit, H. Potrebica, M. Črešnar, P. Mason, L. BüsterSummary: The Kaptol group covers the largest part of continental Croatia during the Early Iron Age. The site st Kaptol, with two tumuli necropolises and a fortified settlement, gives its name to the entire group, providing the most complete picture of the southernmost part of this group and the entire Hallstatt cultural complex in general. The Early Iron Age elite in Kaptol nurtured an ideology and social concepts typical of the eastern Hallstatt sphere, at the same time expressing powerful local identity. The geographic area dominated by this group on the southern edge of the Pannonian plain and the Carpathian Basin corresponds to the peripheral zone of the Hallstatt cultural complex. However, precisely due to that liminal position, it played an enormously important role in regional networks, which linked the Hallstatt area to the Iron Age communities of the Balkans and through them to the Mediterranean and Greece in particular.
