A nameless fort dating from the prospering and late Middle Ages,
erected not far from the village Paka in the upland region of the same
name and situated south of Varaždin, was researched in the period
from 2001 till 2008 as part of the Projekt PAKA . In 2009 work was
carried out linked with the presentation of this site. The fort was
named Paka in accordance with the area where it is situated. The paper
analyses the geomorphologic characteristics of the countryside, and
characteristics of the discovered architecture. It also presents some
of the small objects found there. Most of the findings fall into the
category of plain domestic ceramics. The remaining objects are knives,
grindstones, locks, keys, horse bits and horseshoes, many kinds of
buckles and clasps, spurs, parts of knife cases, various nails, pegs,
pins and hooks, arrows and spears. The ground plan organization of the
burg, manner of construction, and the preserved architectural details
point towards the second part of the 13th century as the period when
it was built. The mobile architectural findings belong to the period
from the 13th to the 15th centuries. In the 15th century the fort was
destroyed by fire. As there are no signs of the fort being repaired
after the fire, it has been concluded that the fire had put an end to
further life in the burg. Along with Medvedgrad, Paka is the first
late Middle Ages fort that has been archeologically researched,
preserved and presented, with a completely different significance.
