Aere perennius. More lasting than bronze. Essays in honour of Valentin Dergachev on the occasion of his 80th birthday

 Essays in honour of Valentin Dergachev
on the occasion of his 80th birthday


This volume is dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the Moldavian archaeologist Valentin Dergachev, researcher of the ancient history of Eastern and Southeastern Europe, the author of more than 160 papers on the Neolithic, Eneolithic and Bronze Age, of which 25 are monographic studies. It is no coincidence that the book is titled with a line from Horace, who discourages Melpomene by the fact that “he has built a monument more lasting than bronze”.  Though what could be stronger than bronze and more ephemeral than monuments? In this sense, the fate of monuments, in the protection of which Valentin Dergachev worked in his youth, is similar to the destiny of many scientific texts. They are often demolished, sent to the trash, or melted down into new ones. At the same time, bronze or even copper itself, which Dergachev was so passionately engaged in throughout his career, has been living in human culture for thousands of years. So do good scientific texts, which, as a rule, outlive their creators for a long time and become the foundation for the discoveries of the next generations. Our volume brings together the works of researchers from Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Russia, Georgia, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, Poland, Germany, Italy, Finland, Spain, Canada and the USA.
