Multi-phased site; datation is based on archaeological findings and on radiocarbon dating: piles (4800 ± 110 BP; 3830 ± 100 BP; 3180 ± 90 BP). / Multi-phased site; datation is based on archaeological findings and on radiocarbon dating: piles (4800 ± 110 BP; 3830 ± 100 BP; 3180 ± 90 BP).

Description

The settlement of Notranje Gorice is situated on fallow Gmajna, southeast of inselberg of Plešivica, and northeast of the railway station in Notranje Gorice. Due to the discovery of a stone axe, the museum team searched numerous trenches at Notranje Gorice in 1905, and came across the remains of the pile-dwelling settlement. In 1907 and 1908, Walter Schmid exvacate the site, and in the 70's, Zorko Harej lead the protective excavations. Archaeological findings and radiocarbon dating show that the area was settled multiple times: first in the fourth, second in the third, and the third time in the second millennium BC. The settlementis situated in an urbanised area where intensive agriculture also takes place. Nothing can be said about the endangerment situation or the preservation of the cultural layer without specific research. We can assume with large certainty that the majority of vertical piles is preserved. / The settlement of Notranje Gorice is situated on fallow Gmajna, southeast of inselberg of Plešivica, and northeast of the railway station in Notranje Gorice.
