In specifically selected excavation projects, currently in Pfaffenhofen-Hörtenberg, North Tyrol, and on Monte San Martino in Trentino, the project develops new archaeological source material. Regional studies address the immediate and wider surroundings of the sites, thus placing them this way in a supraregional context.
Until the end of the project this will be the foundation for a synthesis to be developed addressing early and late Roman time in the Central Alpine Region, based on two very specific examples. In 2017 and 2018, after the completion of the field research, two colloquia took place at which current research on both transition periods and excavation regions was presented and discussed and which are to be understood as interim summaries of the project. Both conferences have since been published as volumes 67 and 68 of the MBV.
