Abstract

This paper presents the results of a field survey undertaken to determine the nature of the evidence for Roman-period activity at quarries on the so-called Škoji islands off Korčula and on Brač. The aim of this investigation was to observe the condition of the quarries and the available archaeological evidence as well as to provide a more comprehensive description of the sites, using measurements, photographs, maps and geographical coordinates. An analysis of the sites also includes comparisons with other quarries in Dalmatia and in the broader Roman Mediterranean.
