Summary/Abstract: The paper sums up the findings of the “Bronze Age northern Bosnia” project, which have helped to fill the gaps in our knowledge of the Early and Middle Bronze Age in this region. The most significant result of the investigations is the identification of the Barice-Gređani cultural group, characterized by open lowland-type settlements with no sign of fortifications. The dominant burial rite was cremation, followed by the burial of the incinerated bones and grave goods in a shallow pit covered with a pottery vessel. Geographically, the group covered most of northern Bosnia, from Potkozarje and Lijevče polje to the west, Semberija to the east, and Slavonia to the north; the southern boundary was not identified.
