TIB 16

Macedonia, Northern Part

The volume 16 of the TIB entitled "Macedonia, Northern Part" comprises the Early Byzantine province of Macedonia Secunda and parts of the provinces Macedonia Prima, Dardania, Epirus Nova, Praevalitana and Dacia Mediterranea. It is closely connected to the volume on "Macedonia, Southern Part" (TIB 11, Peter Soustal). Since the historical area of Macedonia is today divided between Greece, the Republic of North Macedonia and Bulgaria, the volume "Macedonia, Northern Part" (TIB 16) covers the whole territory of North Macedonia and two districts of Bulgaria (namely Kjustendil and Blagoevgrad). The volume on "Macedonia, Northern Part" thus bridges the gap between the volumes TIB 6 "Thrace" and TIB 11 "Macedonia, Southern Part". The research for this volume is based on written sources (mainly in Greek, Latin, Old Slavonic and Ottoman), monuments, archaeological reports and a vast variety of toponyms, as well as extensive secondary literature, mostly in the South Slavic languages. Research trips to the area are regularly conducted.
