Invitation to a conference

The world around us is not a domain of only uniform beings and unequivocal situations. The multi-dimensional and unpredictable world is a result of simultaneous actions of endless interactions taking place between time and space. 

By influencing and intermingling with each other, they change - sometimes unnoticeably - the course of events, eventually often leading to solutions and objectives that are other than previously assumed. The reality around us is not taking place by itself and is not separate from its context. Only at the interface of all dimensions of civilization and nature the real dimension of the world around us is born and the entire being takes shape. 

The Pre-Roman Period, the Roman Influence Period, and the Migration Period are special times in history when those interferences mentioned in the title - cultural, chronological, and conceptual - became very important. During our debates we would like to trace the overlapping of various boundary and transitional situations, defined both literally and metaphorically, but considered in the context of the civilizational changes that were appropriate for the end of the old era and the beginning of the new era. The understanding of the interdependence of the time of occurrence of a cultural, ideological, and ethnic interface, as well as the consequences of the location, the time, the styles, and the start - end - and duration, is formed by those areas whose presentation appears to be immensely important to multidimensional studies of the communities living in the world of the European Barbaricum in that period. 

The aforementioned problems are only certain milestones and road signs that indicate the potential interpretations of the matter mentioned in the title and a possibility to develop it and to add new areas that deserve consideration in the course of our meeting. 

We are happy to invite you to develop them and to add new ones, as well as to actively participate and travel with us through the meanders of the Archeology of interfaces
