This Project group is all about doing research on the subject Veneti. The Website is designed to be an education and information center for all generations. Our principal goal is to stimulate students, teachers and other researchers to study these ancient civilizations. In order to achieve that, an essential content concept had to be created. This concept contains various activities on this subject, such as writing articles in different styles (critical, popular-scientiffic, columns, reviews ...), holding lectures in schools and cultural institutes, presenting papers on specialized scientific workshops, as well as supporting research activities in this direction. Since is an open project, everybody is encouraged to join the team by simply cooperating.
Yours sincerely, Robert Petrič, editor

mt_ignoreInstructions for Schools

Veneti are to a large extent unknown to many people, since they are not included in any school curriculum. That is why we decided to offer a possibility of giving lectures on this subject. We can prepare talks with visual assistance of Powepoint program, followed by a discussion. Some of our lectures which were already held (Predavanje v Novem Mestu 01/02/07, Predavanje v Idriji 11/05/07 ...) prove that we are on the right way.

Available Topics
The organizer can choose between these interesting subjects (they can also be merged into one lecture):

  • Veneti and their historical background,
  • Venetic Inscriptions and their linguistic background,
  • Veneti and their culture,
  • Veneti and their archaeological and genetic aspect,
  • Veneti and their connections with modern Slavic nations
    as well as other neighboring populations.

    *All topics are adjustuble to the local community needs.

Instructions for Schools or other organizers

  1. As seen above there are optional topics you can choose from. Once you made up your mind, contact us in order to set the details. Usually such lectures are being held outside of the school schedule, though if you organize it within your schedule, there are more chances for us to successfully arrange the time.
  2. It is highly recommended that teachers prepare students (and themselves) for the subject. It is welcome to have discussions during the lecture - the more critical it is, the better! You should let us know whether you wish to hear a talk, a discussion or both in order to prepare the timetable.
  3. You need to provide a notebook and a projector in order to receive a Powerpoint visual assistance (highly recommended).
  4. Our work is voluntary, so we do not charge for coming. If you wish you can contribute something for material costs only.

Short history about the website

The website was launched as a multilingual project in June 2005. Starting in Internet together with the Origin project, but later splitting into two different websites, it was from the beginning a comprehensive project. It eventually became a notable research movement, free from any gregarious barriers and unbiased towards revaluation of history.
June 2005: first simple website with few articles and an English translation of one of them.
