The “Rise of Metallurgy in Eurasia” project has received a significant attention in Serbian and regional media. Our project partners were invited on many occasions to talk about this research and communicate the results. We only present here a selection of media coverage for our project as part of our outreach activities.

Developing a touristic route “Following the footsteps of early metallurgists in Serbia”

Miljana Radivojević and Julka Kuzmanović – Cvetković were invited to speak at an open table discussion at the Centre for Study of Cultural Development (Belgrade) on establishing a touristic route in Serbia “Following the footsteps of early metallurgists in Serbia”. This initiative was welcomed by the Serbian Ministry of Mining and Energy and is currently negotiated with government representatives. The “Rise of Metallurgy in Eurasia” project members contributed in setting this agenda by communicating results of their scientific research during the past four years.
