Chapter Summary

The postmodern interpretation of history is slowly becoming the foundation stone of the wider scholarly consensus in the research of past societies. Postmodernism as an archaeological-historical interpretation of the past has been impacted on by several different conceptual approaches, which will be briefly mentioned and discussed in this chapter. The problem of the appearance of South Slavic identities is a highly disputed and controversial issue that has attracted heated scholarly debates over the last few centuries. New theoretical frameworks discussed in the chapter represent a long awaited opportunity to re-examine the problems of a transition from pre-Slavic identities of Late Antiquity to medieval Slavic identities in post-Roman Dalmatia, and in a wider context, Illyricum. The scholarship on early medieval history and the archaeology of post-Roman and early medieval Dalmatia is a very vibrant and exciting area of study.

Keywords: post-Roman Dalmatia; postmodern interpretation; South Slavic identities
