We are researching the dynamic of settlements in this area in past“, said Melisa Foric, the expert associate of the Center fo Balkan Studies of the Academy of Science and Art of BiH.

“Colleagues from Germany provided the financial resources for this project, and professor Hoffman led his students and collaborators at the fortnight research here with the contemporary equipment thanks to which nothing have to be digged, but the layout of the underground structure can be seen by a single scanning. What is the most important is that we have good results, some new surprises, we have discovered one more Neolithic settlement here in Zupcici, and there are some indications that more settlements from the prehistoric period existed here. Yesterday we have discovered the structure of one Roman villa and I hope that its systematic research will be organized in future“, explained Foric.
