Metalla Tricornensia takes us on a walk through the woods of Kosmaj with Adam Crnobrnja, senior archaeologist at the National Museum of Belgrade. Here in the high mountains south of the Serbian capital, Belgrade, we find remnants of the Roman mining industry from the 3rd century A.D. The Kosmaj silver mines were among the most important mines in the Roman Empire, and Crnobrnja’s team is involved in archaeological reconnaissance as part of the third in a series of digs that have been conducted in the region over the past 100 years.
Director Rastko Sejic captures the archaeologist’s passion as well as his sentimentality in this sincere and compelling plea for conservation of world cultural heritage.
