Draženko Nenadić

Draženko Nenadić

Is an expert in Pleistocene biostratigraphy and in particular, Early and Middle Pleistocene mollusks. He works in various kinds of Quaternary deposits, both terrestrial and aquatic – fluvial, lacustrine and palustrine, cave sediments, loess etc. His main research interests are Pleistocene fluvial deposits in northern Serbia (Vojvodina) and the correlation of such deposits with higher river terraces of the Danube and Morava Rivers. He will contribute his expertise to the paleoenvironmental reconstruction of Pleistocene terraces of Zapadna and Južna Morava.

She obtained her doctorate in prehistory at the University of Bordeaux in 2017 on the topic of the emergence of symbolic behavior in Eastern Europe during the Middle Paleolithic. She has published on the archaeological material from the Balkans and Crimea in the Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory and PLoSOne. Ana Majkić will work on the archaeological material that has relevance for understanding the evolution of human cognitive abilities.

He is a specialist in archaeozoology of large mammals. He received his doctorate in 2016, and published a book about competition between humans and large carnivores during the late Middle and Upper Paleolithic of the Central Balkans in the BAR series of monographs. He also participated in the publication of several papers on Paleolithic sites in Serbia. Together with V. Dimitrijević, Milošević will work on the taphonomic reconstruction of faunal remains from the investigated sites.

He completed his undergraduate studies in archaeology at UBFZF, and his Master’s studies at UBFMG, where he enrolled in doctoral studies in 2017. He has published several papers on paleoanthropological remains from Serbia as the first author in the leading journals in the field including the Journal of Human Evolution. P. Radović will work on the paleoanthropological remains recovered from sampling, surveys, and excavations, and will be included in the evaluation of paleontological remains.

Senka Plavšić obtained her doctorate at UBFZF in 2022. The topic of her dissertation was behavioral modernity in the spatial organization of habitats. She was an exchange student at the University of Wyoming (R. Kelly) during her bachelor studies. In 2018 she received the Hugo Obermaier Research Grant and thus had the opportunity to independently excavate the Paleolithic site of Meča Dupka near Cerje. She published the paper about the results of the Meča Dupka excavations and the paper about the spatial distribution of artifacts from the Aurignacian layer in Šalitrena Cave.

She obtained her doctorate in 2022. The topic of her dissertation was on laminar technology at the transition from the Middle to the Upper Paleolithic in the Balkans. She has participated in the research of almost all Paleolithic sites in Serbia and Montenegro, as well as the Stelida project on Naxos (T. Carter). She has participated in the analysis and publication of several relevant papers, including a paper on the spatial analysis of artifacts from the Aurignacian layer in Šalitrena Cave.
