Datation is unreliable; probably this settlement spot is from the third millennium or the first half of the second millennium BC. / Datation is unreliable; probably this settlement spot is from the third millennium or the first half of the second millennium BC.

Description

The alleged settlement is situated on boggy ground southwest of Bevke. In the 1950’s, a team of archaeologists excavated test pits in the area along Za strugo trench, where J. Skubic noticed vertical piles. The research showed that these are probably medieval and not prehistoric findings. The latter, namely the pile sunk vertically, and the two fragments of prehistoric pottery were found as late as 1985 by Janez Dirjec. The existence of the settlement is not certain. In case the prehistoric pottery points to the existence of a pile-dwelling settlement, the cultural layer is very likely well-preserved, and the same can be assumed for the piles. / The alleged settlement is situated on boggy ground southwest of Bevke.
