Prehistoric settlement discovered in Serbia
A prehistoric settlement from the early and late Iron Age and several remains from 1,000 BCE to II-III century CE have been discovered at the site of Bare, southern Serbia.
Several objects dating from the Iron Age were found on an area covering about three hectares, said the head of the team, Maja Djordjevic of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments of Serbia. The items found, said Djordjevic, point to a rich life at the site, where there used to be a large settlement at the time.
Due to torrential rains and intensive agriculture at the location, the multilayer site Bare is now largely destroyed. "Had the site been investigated in the sixties of the last century, the findings would have been far richer, unveiling more significant evidence," Djordjevic said.
