Program Description:
The Roman city of Stobi was strategically located at the meeting of two important ancient roads that ran along the rivers Vardar (ancient Axios) and Crna (ancient Erigon). This position brought Stobi long-term prosperity, especially in the period between the 1st and 3rd centuries CE. In the last seasons the field school was focused on the most representative, residential building in Stobi – Theodosian Palace - located at the center of the Roman town. The building, which is richly decorated with mosaics, was given its name under the assumption that the emperor Theodosius I was housed there during his visit to Stobi in 388 CE. Next to it, in 2016 students unearthed another building located between the palace and the so called “Jail”, dated to the last urban phase of Stobi (the second half of the 6th century CE). The temporal and architectural relationships between these  three buildings are unclear, and the forthcoming  season will be dedicated to explore  this issue concerning the architectural history of Stobi. The excavation program for students will be complemented by an intense training on photogrammetry and mapping of architectural remains and large archaeological features in excavated units at the site.
