Datation of the settlement in the Early Bronze Age is based on the datation of the ceramics with flock decoration, and radiocarbon dating (3560 ± 40 BP). / Datation of the settlement in the Early Bronze Age is based on the datation of the ceramics with flock decoration, and radiocarbon dating (3560 ± 40 BP).

Description

The settlement is to be found along and in the Bistra, not far from the Technical Museum of Slovenia. In 2006, the site was discovered by Andrej Gaspari who, based on the Litzen pottery, dated it in the Early Bronze Age. The endangerment situation is not known. Perhaps the larger part of the site is not threatened, but it is placed along river the Bistra which can be a serious threat. The stratigraphy is probably excellently preserved. Also the piles are probably preserved. / The settlement is to be found along and in the Bistra, not far from the Technical Museum of Slovenia.
