Summary/Abstract: The late ancient and medieval city of Bargala is located 17 km north – east from the town Shtip, at the foothills of the mountain Plachkovica, on the right bank of the river Kozjak, about 3 km south from the village Dolen Kozjak. Since the beginning of the VI century AD, the city faced the Slavic and Avar invasions, resulting with its total destruction at the end of the VI and the beginning of the VII century AD. The earliest evidence confirming the life of the city Bargala in the Middle Ages is the movable archaeological material found during the archaeological excavations on the medieval, Slavic necropolis, which is located nearby the church St. George. Some capital findings representing the medieval sacral architecture in the city are the little church dated at the end of the VII and the beginning of the VIII century AD, and the church St. George built at the end of the IX and the beginning of X century AD. Regarding the profane architecture, there are several buildings in the Episcopium and in the newer content of the central area of the city.
