As a National Institution responsible for the cultural heritage in the northeast region of North Macedonia, the National Inst. Museum of Kumanovo started to excavate an early byzantine settlement in Bislim Gorge, near the village of Pcinja. It is a Late Antique fortress built in a middle of a gorge ( https://maps.app.goo.gl/jFjokLSfXkcWnet58). Since the progress of the excavations is very slow, we are interested in the possibility of working with an institution or organization, on a joined project on the excavation of the site, or on digitalization and documentation of the fortress by using modern technology (lidar, geophysics, 3d laser etc..). Moreover, we are ready to collaborate on any other project or idea that you can have in mind that will include the site itself.
