Abstract :
This paper presents the archaeological site of Pistiros in Bulgaria as a case study, supposing to contribute to the debate of the nature of archaeological thinking and practice in contemporary archaeology. It does not intend to evaluate the archaeology of the site per se but rather to focus on the processes of producing knowledge about it in the institutional framework of the academic research culture in Bulgaria. The site is seen as a venture challenging the outdated culture-historical approaches through the immense contribution of Mieczysław Domaradzki, unfolding space for new research resources and collaborative strategies within the Mediterranean.
