Description

The settlement of Založnica (also Kamnik) is situated approximately in the middle of moor bay, under the village of Kamnik pod Krimom. The settlement was discovered in 1954, when workers were digging drainage trenches. Soon afterwards, archaeologists cleaned and archaeologically documented the profile of the trench; also samples for palynological analysis were taken. Based on the findings, they placed the site at the end of the Copper Era alongside pile-dwellings from Ig. The first archaeological-dendrochronological research on the site was carried out in 1995, followed by two campaigns, namely in 1999 and 2001. Based on these researches, the pile-dwelling is chronologically placed in the period around 2500-2400 BC; the settlement culturally belongs in the Somogyvár-Vinkovci group. The site is partially threatened due to the sinking of the moor, and intensive agriculture. Currently, stratigraphy is excellently preserved. The piles are also preserved. / The settlement of Založnica (also Kamnik) is situated approximately in the middle of moor bay, under the village of Kamnik pod Krimom.
