Volume 1 of the Adriatic Islands Project, The Archaeological Heritage of Hvar , paved the way for this survey of the island of Brac, undertaken from 1994-1996. The authors discuss the previous archaeological research carried out on Brac, the nature of the island's geography, climate, soils, population trends and agricultural economy, and ancient written sources. The majority of the book is taken up by an extensive gazetteer of sites and monuments, which more than doubled in size as the result of these field campaigns. Though low on interpretation, this study achieves its goal of promoting a better understanding of the archaeology of the area and highlighting the need for further study and proper heritage management.
