Archaeological excavation on the Novo Selo Bunje site on the island of Brač, 2018
There were two campaigns in 2018: one in April/May and one in October. The excavations undertaken in the outbuilding area of the villa uncovered two large structures for the production of oil and wine with a press, ducts, and pools with vertical stratigraphy, and a storage space. South of the main wall of the villa, a small trench was made around an already known sarcophagus with a Christ monogram, revealing the associated architecture and an interesting stratigraphic situation. In the north part of the villa, there is the defined north wall of the main building. No architecture was found on its south side, indicating that the main building of the villa had a U-shaped ground plan, at least in the younger phase. The oldest walls of the villa were discovered in the residential part of the villa and were negated by the younger villa (probably in the 2nd century already), indicating the existence of a small outbuilding in the 1st century AD.
