The paper brings new findings at archaeo¬logical sites located near the villages of Majur

(Zagreb County, Commune of Farkaševac) and Ladinec (Koprivnica-Križevci County, Commune of Sveti Ivan Žabno), which are situated to the north and south of the Sveti Ivan Žabno-Bjelovar road. The findings are based upon typological and chronological analysis of pottery gathered during superficial field examination as well as aerial pho¬tos (Chart 1). Common features of these locations are gentle hills and rich water currents in the val¬leys, which made the area suitable for settlements. Special attention in this work is paid to the stream Velika that used to be of much greater importance than it is today.
Fragments of pottery found in the western part of Ladinec-Čatrnja location(Fig.l:l) clearly show a settlement typical of the Virovitica cul¬tural group from the beginning of late Bronze Age, 14th -12th cent. BC (T.3). Pottery dating from the same period was found in the central part of Čatrnja (Fig.l:2) and in the eastern part called Zukve (Fig.l:3; T.4). The same locations are rich in pottery from the newer Iron Age.The same area hid fragments of ancient (T5:l-8) and late medieval pottery (T.6).
At Majur location, in the upper layer to the north from the last houses the archaeologists discovered prehistoric settlements dating from ne-olitic, eneolitic and late Bronze Age, all belonging to Zagreb group that chronologically corresponds to Baierdorf-Velatice group from the Mid-Danube basin (fig.2:l; T l-2).In the farther northern part of the prehistoric site a lot of ancient pottery was located (T.5: 9-10), while late medieval pottery was discovered only sporadically (Fig.2:2). Op¬posite these upper positions, in the swampy valley there stand the remains of a medieval fortress named 'Grad / Town Belovar'. It is possible that the swamp was directly connected with the Velika stream (Fig. 2:4; Fig.4).
The whole area has been screened and ana¬lysed from the air and these findings confirm the spreading of archaeological sites (Fig.1-2). Further works led to discovery of new archaeological loca¬tions dating from medieval times and the Modern Age. (Fig.3).
