Abstract

The professional career of Adam Oršić went through many ups and downs and odd detours. He began his professional life in Niš, as an assistant in the Museum to whose foundation he contributed, and during the World War II he focused upon his studies and the archaeological projects in Austria, with the aid of Oswald Menghin. The unstable political circumstances in the Balkans at the time, and the personal and professional decisions Oršić made, led to his long career in Brazil. During the four decades of devoted work, Oršić took part in numerous archaeological projects throughout Europe and South America, and his pioneering work in Brazil is still the subject of discussion in the archaeological community. The results of the work of Oršić in Yugoslavia have been largely ignored and finally forgotten. The paper presents an attempt to point to the importance of the research of Adam Oršić and the relevance of his results for the generations of archaeologists.
