The paper deals with the theoretical and methodological correlation between archaeology, Braudel’s structural history and Balkanology. The common denominator and the link between these disciplines is Cvijić’s anthropo-geographical school, and his cultural models, which were the core of the hypothetical and paradigmatic cultural models of Balkan prehistory, confirmed in a number of archaeological projects of the Institute for Balkan Studies.
