Description

The settlement of Smrečnica is situated on fallow Na mahu, southwest of the village of Blatna Brezovica. In 1942, the settlement is assumed to have been discovered by S. Petrič who, while they were trenching Lipovec, found larger numbers of “pile dwelling items” in the trench. In 1980, the parcels on which the settlement should have been spreading out were marked. In the 90’s, Janez Dirjec found a fragment of presumably pile-dwelling ceramics in this area. The existence of the settlement is not certain. In case the findings prove the existence of a pile-dwelling settlement, the cultural layer is very likely well-preserved, and the same can be said for the piles. / The settlement of Smrečnica is situated on fallow Na mahu, southwest of the village of Blatna Brezovica.
