Geneva University archaeological mission in Croatia: 11 years of fieldworks on the medieval site of Guran, Istria.
The Swiss archaeological mission in Croatia carried out a project from 2002 until 2013 in collaboration with Zagreb University to study the settlement pattern and organisation of the rural space of southern Istria during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages.
Its main focus has been the early medieval fortified settlement of Guran in south Istria the origin of which is dated to the Carolingian period and is abandoned in the late Middle ages. Excavations uncovered the two main churches of St Simon and St Cecilia, the fortifications with a monumental gate as well as dwelling houses.
