During September and October 2017, after an eight-year break, archaeological research of the church of St. Martin at the site Prozorje (Martin-Breg) in Dugo Selo, continued. One probe (Probe 6) was explored, covering the entire surface of the church’s aisle. Below the humus layer that accumulated after the church went out of use, some paving and other structures, such as tombs, crypts, columns that held the choir and like, were discovered. Nineteen graves in total were explored and in most of them ‘special finds’ were discovered. In 47 % of them religious objects were found. They are mostly medallions, crucifixes, rosaries or parts of rosaries. Even more special finds was collected in the mixed layers. Among the abovementioned categories of finds there were also numerous coins, buttons, fragments of pottery and glass and the, especially outstanding, bronze breviary. The reason for such a large number of finds could lay in frequent digging and re-burying within the church’s aisle during which many graves were destroyed. A large number of human bones found in the mixed layer support this theory.
