Summary/Abstract: The jeweler’s estate on the site Zamkova Gora in Lyubetch, which had been destroyed by fire in the middle of the 13th century, was investigated during 2010—2011. It was located on the northern part of the site, opposite to the driveway. The estate consisted of six different buildings, in which molds for jewelry, crucibles, anvil, silver bullions and cooper alloy bars were found. Remains of a high temperature oven with accumulation of glass bracelets and glassy mass inside were investigated in one building. It is possible that the craftsman, who lived in this estate, used to produce jewelry from non-ferrous materials and glass.
