The archaeological initiatives and institutions active in southwestern Styria have joined forces in 2019 to form the project “ArchaeoRegion Southwest Styria.” They present themselves and the most important sites of the region on this website. Their goal, in addition to research and protection, is to make our common archaeological heritage visible to the public.
Experiencing archaeology, history, and culture
Nature and man. A millennia-old history of interaction, of mutual shaping and forming. Evidence of this formation can still be found in the form of our archaeological heritage. Southwestern Styria is characterized by a particular wealth of historical and cultural evidence. From the Stone Age to the recent past, numerous peoples and cultures have left material traces in the region: prehistoric and early historic settlements and burial grounds, buildings from antiquity and the Middle Ages, stone witnesses to industrialization, but also to the numerous wars that have ravaged our region.
