Probably this settlement is from the third millennium BC. / Probably this settlement is from the third millennium BC.

Description

The settlement is situated 200-250 m north of Zornica bridge under Blatna Brezovica. The site was discovered during the Second World War, when presumably workers came across “moor” pottery fragments, a stone axe and other unworked stones, while broadening the Zornica brook. 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 is situated 200-250 m north of Zornica bridge under Blatna Brezovica.
