Millennia hoarded. Creation and spirituality - the 19th edition of the National Session of Scientific Communications



Buzau County Museum organizes a XIX edition of the National Session of Scientific Communications with the generic title Millennia hoarded. Creation and spirituality, which will take place in online format on November 5, 2021, starting at 9 o'clock00.

The works will be carried out in a single section entitled:

Interdisciplinary research in the Carpathians of Curvature carried out within the project - Hidden Landscapes: Remote Sensing and LIDAR Exploration of Roads, Borders, and Battlefields in the Southeast Carpathians (HILANDS), where over 20 specialists will present the main results of research conducted in 2019-2021.

The project HILANDS (2018-2022), coordinated by the “Vasile Pârvan” Institute of Archeology of the Romanian Academy, is funded by the Executive Unit for the Financing of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (UEFISCDI).

The project carries out, on an unprecedented scale, LiDAR investigations (from the plane, but also with the help of UAV technology) along the most important strategic corridors, used from prehistory to modern times: Rucăr-Bran, Drumul Tătarului , Moldovan road through the Oituz pass, but also through some of their variants (Dâmbovița valley, Buzăului valley, Ghimeș-Palanca pass).

LIDAR investigations are followed by geophysical studies and interdisciplinary ground analyzes (magnetometry, electrometry, photogrammetry, etc.), surface research, field assessments and archaeological surveys to obtain the most complete data on roads and trade routes, sites and the battlefields in the area.

Because the HILANDS project is carried out over a large area, which includes the territory of Argeș, Dâmbovița, Prahova, Buzău, Brăila, Vrancea, Bacău, Brașov, Covasna and Harghita counties, the Institute of Archeology ”V. Pârvan ”of the Romanian Academy has concluded collaboration protocols with specialists from the museums of the mentioned area.

The movable patrimony discovered on the occasion of these researches remains in the museum collections on the territory of the counties where it was found, and the researchers of the respective institutions participate in its cultural and scientific capitalization, through exhibitions, communications, reports, articles, studies and monographs.

The Buzău County Museum, both through the discovered vestiges and through the fact that it has included in the project three valuable researchers, makes a significant contribution to the cultural and scientific research and capitalization of the heritage within the HILANDS Project.

Buzau County Museum

Buzau County Museum is the main museum institution in Buzau County. Its foundations were laid by Basil Iorgulescu and the development of the collections led to several stages of expansion. The current headquarters is the third. From 1977 until now it is housed in the building of the former Girls' School. The building, built between 1931 and 1937, is included in the list of historical monuments, being one of the most imposing buildings in the city.

The permanent exhibitions were opened here in 1980-1981, being subsequently modified and updated in 1986, 1990, 1999-2001, 2004, 2015-2017. The newest project was implemented after the complete restoration of the building (carried out in the period 2010-2015, based on the financing of 36,906,590 lei / 8,201,464 Euros offered through the Regional Operational Program 2007-2013).

In the 1980s and 1990s, the museum's collections became substantially richer as a result of archaeological research, acquisitions, and donations. In addition to the consistent collections of history and archeology, the museum's fund has grown steadily, enriching itself with valuable goods ethnographical, artist, numismatics and in the field of mineralogy and al natural sciences.

Under the auspices of the institution, a series of books were published ("Mousaios Library"), 2 annual scientific bulletins ("Mousaios" and "Annals of the Buzău”), Catalogs and monographs, fruit of the scientific research activity carried out within the museum institution.
