  • Apart from the mass use of bronze for making weapons and characteristic jewellery, the biggest peculiarity of this period – which lasted from about the second half of the third and throughout the second millennium BC – was a completely new attitude towards the cult of the dead
  • Settlements were discovered at only two localities – Sokolica Fortress in Ostra and Slatina in Gornja Gorevnica – which most likely indicates the existence of a livestock economy during this period
  • The main feature of the Bronze Age in our region is the erection of burial mounds; research into these burial mounds has created a very good basis for gaining clearer knowledge of this period
