Description

The settlement is situated on the moor earth slightly southeast of the church of St Jacob near Blatna Brezovica. The site was discovered by J. Skubic. In 1953, he showed it to archaeologists. Namely, while performing various agricultural works, they came across fragments of pottery, and a pile in a depth of 30 cm. In 1996, while field surveying the site again, they discovered a fragment of Eneolithic pottery, non-defined in detail, but no piles. It seems that the site is already very threatened. The cultural layer is probably to a large extent destroyed. Although the data on the piles are very scarce, we can expect to find them. / The settlement is situated on the moor earth slightly southeast of the church of St Jacob near Blatna Brezovica.
