Summary/Abstract: In october 2000, three tranches were opened near the village of Pîclişa, in order to locate the place of some older archaeological finds made in the '70. There were found 3 burials, with rich grave-goods, including silver locken rings with an S-shaped end, bronze locken ring and finger rings as well as 3 silver coins, belonging to king Stephan (997-1038) and Andrew the Ist (1046-1060). The graves belong to the Bjelo Brdo culture and can be dated in the XIth century AD. An Iron Age complex was found too, consisting of a stone area mixed with three broken vessels. The pottery can be assigned to the Basarabi culture, probably to a later stage, while the assamblge could have a funeral use. The preliminary results must be completed by more extensive excavations in the future.
