Topic 1: Interactive plan of the Roman military camp

Topic 1: Interactive map of the Danube Limes in Croatia

On the thinglink platform, we are developing digital educational content of the Roman military camp and the Danube Limes topics.

Workshops consist of an introductory description of the military camp / Danube Limes, which is followed by an interactive platform with which it will be possible to learn more about parts of the camp or the sites on the Limes. Each link with a short description takes us to another activity - a crossword puzzle, memory, information about the local attraction (Kopački rit, for example).

Topics related to the Roman army intertwine all five domains that are determined by the new Curriculum for History (society, economy, science and technology, politics and the philosophical-religious-cultural field). These topics are an ideal basis for finding new knowledge and establishing existing one about the ancient world and society in general. The Roman Limes, with special reference to the Danube Limes in Croatia, describes even closer presence of Ancient Rome in the parts of our country. It brings to life Roman life and the struggle for the maintenance and not only the maintenance of the once powerful Roman Empire in „our beautiful country“.

The workshops are conducted as part of the Science Popularization Program of the Institute of Archaeology and the installation project Life on the Roman road - communications, trade and identities on Roman roads in Croatia from the 1st to the 8th century LRR (UIP-05-2017-9768) founded by the Croatian Science Foundation.

For older children and adults.

The project Rab Archaeological (T)races was developed on the idea of an open-air museum, presenting about 30 archaeological sites belonging to all periods on the island of Rab. Included sites spread along the western part of the island and can be visited through three educational trails which lead to the sites or to panoramic locations overlooking archaeological zones. The trails Capo Fronte, Frux and Epario are located on the Kalifront peninsula, the Fruga plateau and Lopar peninsula, stretching through unattached nature which hides not only archaeological sites but also numerous ethnological and natural treasures.

In order to facilitate navigation, but also as an added content, a mobile app was developed which follows the trails and allow access to various augmented reality contents.

Download the app Rab Archaeological (T)races, find out more about the archaeological sites, solve riddles and answer quizzes and discover many details of life on the island in the past.

For all age groups.


In the Neolithic (Late Stone Age) only stone and bone tools were used as well as bone ornaments. Houses were made of wood, wattle and doub and were most likely covered with reed or branches. Pottery vessels of various shapes, sizes and decoration were used in the houses, and fabric was made on looms (spindle whorls or loom weights were found). If the settlements were near rivers or lakes, fishing equipment was used.

Connect the objects with the house in the drawing.


For all age groups.


Find ten archaeological Neolithic words …

In the Neolithic (Late Stone Age) only stone and bone tools were used as well as bone ornaments. Wood houses were constructed (houses with wooden construction) which in some settlements were renewed in layers one above the other, thus creating settlements that we see today as artificial hills (tells). In archaeological excavations, all these settlement layers over a long period of time are called stratigraphy. In the houses ceramic pottery was used, among which coarse and large pots in the early Neolithic were decorated on the outside with barbotine, i.e. applied clay paste from which ornaments were formed and which also allowed the surface of the pots to remain rough for easier handling.

…and learn them in Croatian!

Play the Game!


Interactive educational colouring book / cartoon intended for preschool and school children.

Archaeology is a science that aims to reconstruct life in the past. Much like today, people in the past made and used a variety of objects in their daily lives. The remains of these objects are called archaeological finds, and they are often the main means by which archaeologists reconstruct life in the past. These objects are sometimes of a mysterious nature, and the role of archaeologists is to discover what the objects were used for, how people used them in the past, and what they can tell us about their lives.

Become an archaeologist too, colour the past and discover what some mysterious objects were used for!

The colouring book contains drawings of archaeological objects intended for colouring and / or supplementing the drawings.

The objects are accompanied by a short educational text. The purpose of this colouring book is of an educational nature and the desire is to stimulate creativity and imagination!
