We are proud to announce that the documentary capturing the second season of excavations at Glac by Slobodan Maksic will be shown at the 20th International Archaeology Film Festival in Belgrade. The screening will be held at the Atrium of the beautifully renovated National Museum in Belgrade, on Friday, 5 April, at 8.50 pm.
What an amazing year 2018 has been!
We had a very successful excavation season, welcomed wonderful new team members, started the Glac Education Program with students from Sremska Mitrovica Grammar School and filmed two exciting documentaries.
There are many things we are grateful for this year. From fantastic discoveries, excellent teamwork, visit of the Serbian Minister of Culture and Information, Vladan Vukosavljevic and Australian Ambassador, Julia Feeney, to enjoyment in the beautiful town and people of Sremska Mitrovica.
Most of all, we are grateful for the continuous support and dedication of our Project partners and donors, the local community and the Serbian diaspora in Australia. Without you, this Project would not have been possible.
We wish to thank you all for great cooperation and camaraderie in 2018!
And now it is time to let our hair down and enjoy the festive season!

As part of the ”November Days” in Sremska Mitrovica, four of our wonderful students from the 2018 Glac Education Program gave a presentation about the program and their experiences to a packed audience at the Sremska Mitrovica Grammar School. Thank you to our colleagues from the Museum of Srem and the Institute of Conservation for facilitating the event, and most of all, congratulations to Andrea Darabašić, Tiana Božić, Lana Konstantinović and Tamara Jovanović on their presentation. Empowering and inspiring young people from Mitrovica to take the lead in championing the history of their great town is what the Glac Education Program is all about.
It is our pleasure to invite you to a presentation created by Sremska Mitrovica Grammar School students in the framework of “November Days” Festival on Wednesday, 14 November at noon, at the Ceremonial Hall of the School, 2 Sv. Save Street.
On this occasion, students will talk about their experience at the archaeological site Glac and various workshops they attended in July of this year as a part of the first Glac Project Education Program “Sirmium: Past and Future”.
The Glac Project took part at the second edition of the festival "Imperial Sirmium-City of Legends" from 31 August-2 September, in Sremska Mitrovica. The three-day Festival revived the spirit of ancient Sirmium with various cultural events like gladiator battle re-enactments, Roman coins minting, mosaic workshops, a play about Roman emperor Maximian Herculius, as well as Roman cuisine and wine tastings.
The Glac Project is proud to have the incomparable Milijana Nikolić as our ambassador. Milijana is known and loved by opera fans throughout the world for the soaring power and richness of her voice, and for the passion she brings to performances of some of the strongest women of opera, from Amneris to Azucena and of course Carmen.
Serbia has a rich folkloric dance culture that is an important part of the Serbian cultural identity. Through numerous clubs, folkloric schools and festivals, this tradition is nurtured among the Serbian community in Australia.
We were happy to take part at the 32nd Serbian Folkloric Festival, Sydney that took place from 10-12 August and spread the word about the Glac Project.
Today the Serbian Minister of Culture and Information, Vladan Vukosavljevic and the Australian Ambassador to Serbia, H.E. Mrs Julia Feeney visited the archaeological site Glac and the Museum of Srem for the last session of the Glac 2018 Education Program with students from Sremska Mitrovica Grammar School. After the closing session, a tour of the Museum and the newly reconstructed site, Grain Square, the Minister and Ambassador joined the End-of-the-Season-Party at the Special Nature Reserve Zasavica.
We will be opening doors of the archaeological site Glac, nearby Sremska Mitrovica on Saturday, 30 June. Visitors will have the opportunity to hear a presentation about the history of Sirmium and the Glac site, see some artefacts, visit the site, meet the team of experts and students working on it, and watch short films that capture last year’s and this year’s season.
