Description

The settlement is situated in the area of fields along Barjejski graben (also Partovski kanal II). Deschmann might already have known the site too, but this is not proven yet. In 1963, Tatjana Bregant set a smaller test pit in the vicinity of Barjejski graben, inside which she came across cultural remains. In 1967, they noticed vertical piles in the same trench which runs across the site. In 1973, they discovered that they appear to be 140 m in length. The findings can be dated from first half and the middle of the third millennium BC. There are no data on preservation of the cultural layer, but the piles are preserved for certain. / The settlement is situated in the area of fields along Barjejski graben (also Partovski kanal II).
