SETTLEMENT CONTINUITY AT SUŠINE SITE NEAR VIRJE (NORTH CROATIA) THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE AGES
Sídelná kontinuita na lokalite Sušine, blízko Virje (severné Chorvátsko), počas stredoveku
Abstract: The work discusses archaeological material from two archaeological units excavated within trench S-8 at the site of Virje-Sušine. On the basis of detailed analysis of fragments of pottery vessels and several metal objects, two horizons of settlement were recognised at this site during the Middle Ages: earlier – second half of the 8th and beginning of the 9th centuries and later - 11th century and the beginning of the 12th century. In the earlier horizon processing of iron ore and smelting were essential economic activities at the site.
