According to pottery, the settlement is dated in the fifth millennium BC, in the horizon of Resnikov prekop. / According to pottery, the settlement is dated in the fifth millennium BC, in the horizon of Resnikov prekop.

Description

The settlement is situated on fallow Zamedvedica, on the 2783/2 CM Brezovica parcel, between the inselbergs of Vrbičev hribec and Medvedica. The settlement was probably discovered by Karl Deschmann in 1877, when he also reports about pile-dwelling piles. In 1980, Ivan Turk and Davorin Vuga found fragments of pottery on a freshly ploughed field, having analogies with Resnik’s one. Although they did not notice the pile-dwelling piles, it is assumed that they came across Deschmann's settlement. The endangerment situation is not known. In the area of the site, only archaeological items can be found. Prehistoric cultural layer and the piles are probably destroyed. / The settlement is situated on fallow Zamedvedica, on the 2783/2 CM Brezovica parcel, between the inselbergs of Vrbičev hribec and Medvedica.
