Mitja GUŠTIN and Andrej PRELONIK:
An Iron Age barrow cemetery at the Krka River
The article presents the barrow cemetery at Sajevce in the Dolenjska region (Lower Carniola), dated to the Early Hallstatt period.
First barrows were discovered there in 1878. The finds published in this article, however, came to light during the investigations in 1879, 1902, as well as rescue excavations in 1982. On the basis of finds and burial form, the cemetery is dated to the 7th century BC. Two of its graves are presented in greater detail, being exceptional due to their construction as well as contents, particularly the Libna type belt set and golden ornaments.
Keywords: Sajevce, Dolenjska, Early Iron Age, graves, barrows, belt sets, golden ornaments
