The excavation of refuse pit G5 2012 yielded a number of new forms of the ceramic production in Crikvenica: two complete forms of amphorae, a simple semicircular bowl and a mortar of elongated body with close-fitting handles. The remaining surface is covered with workshop refuse mixed with clay. We should also single out layer SU 054 next to the perimeter wall of the large kiln, which contains a number of more or less complete ceramic objects.
One of the most important discoveries of this year’s campaign are two graves from late antiquity. Grave 1 contained the skeleton of a child around six years old. Grave 2 contained a child of similar age, associated with finds that date it approximately to the 4th century: a glass trilobiten bead and a small FIRMA-type lamp of somewhat poorer workmanship. These two graves point to the existence of a necropolis from late antiquity at the position of the older workshop, used for the burials of the inhabitants of Ad Turres, documented on Tabula Peutingeriana.
In the warehouse we analysed the architectural ceramics from the fills of kilns “103” and “Ignatias”, which consisted of floor bricks, tubuli, suspensures, bricks, imbrices, tegulae and parts of grates and arches of the kiln.
