Erna-Diez-Preis 2015 for Employees of the Austrian Archeological Institute

Christoph Hinker, archaeologist at the Austrian Archaeological Institute (OeAI) was honoured with the Erna-Diez-Prize for 2015. The expert panel awarded him the prize for his research on Flavia Solva, the only Roman city in the region of Styria.

 

According to the jury, the author has decisively enriched archaeological knowledge of Roman aspects of what is today Styria, with his publications »Flavia Solva vor der Stadtrechtsverleihung. Befunde und Funde aus der insula XL« (Graz 2006) and »Ein Brandhorizont aus der Zeit der Markomannenkriege im südostnorischen Munizipium Flavia Solva« (Vienna 2014). In his investigations, Hinker studies the earliest Roman traces of settlement and the formative period of the Roman city around the time of the birth of Christ, and discusses the evidence for the historically transmitted Marcomanni Wars (166–180 A.D.) in the archaeological sources.

 

The Erna-Diez-Prize has been awarded since 2012 in memory of the archaeologist Erna Diez (1913–2001) for outstanding achievements in the field of provincial Roman archaeology in Styria and the Provinces of Noricum and Pannonia, by the Historical Regional Commission for Styria (HLK). This year’s prize winners were honoured on May 4 in a festive occasion at Schloss Seggau near Leibnitz.

 

The publication »Ein Brandhorizont aus der Zeit der Markomannenkriege im südostnorischen Munizipium Flavia Solva« (Vienna 2014) was supported by a grant from the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).
