Probably this settlement is from the first half of the third millennium BC (in the vicinity, a dugout canoe was found: 4210 ± 40 BP). / Probably this settlement is from the first half of the third millennium BC (in the vicinity, a dugout canoe was found: 4210 ± 40 BP).

Description

The settlement is situated on fallow Veliki mah between Bevke and Blatna Brezovica. The site was discovered by F. Gostiša approximately half a century ago. He gave the findings he found to private antique collectors. As late as 1995, news of the site reached the Institute of Archaeology, Scientific Research Centre at the Slovenian Academy of Sciences. The same year, Anton Velušček and Tatjana Greif set three bore holes on the site, and confirmed the existence of piles and the cultural layer. Based on drilling and topographic survey, performed in 1996, it seems very likely that the cultural layer and the piles are well-preserved. / The settlement is situated on fallow Veliki mah between Bevke and Blatna Brezovica.
