  • Comment The hill of Ljubična gora rises 250 m above the valley of river Dravinja. The top of the hill is artificially flattened and enclosed. Its southern and western slopes are formed into terraces. The defensive rampart was erected in prehistory and it was used again in Late Antiquity when a stone wall was built on top of it. Eastern part of the hill where another plateau is located was presumably also part of the settlement area but due to the church which was built in 15th century the area was not researched (PIRKMAJER 1986, 252; CIGLENEČKI 1992, 82). A lot of finds which were discovered by enthusiasts that used metal detectors are kept by National Museum in Ljubljana. Collected finds are without known contexts, their typology indicates that the Settlement was active from Late bronze Age until Early Iron Age and again in Late Antiquity (LAHARNAR, B. – Ž. ŠMIT – A. ŠEMROV 2017; VRENČUR 2018, 214).
