Standards and exchange values in the European late prehistoric societies
Slovenia-France cooperation in science and technology, the Proteus programme 2008-2009
Collaboration between Slovenian and French researchers intends to develop analytical tools of studying standard measurement system, as well as social and economic values of bronze objects in prehistoric communities. Research is focused on contacts between the resources of copper ore in the Alpine regions and areas of utilization of bronze objects within the case-area in Slovenia and France. One of the topics refers to identifying production and distribution centres and regional organization of exchange.
