Protective archeological research has been completed in the yard of the baroque palace Restić No. 7, in Pustijerna, the southeastern section of the old city nucleus. A tripartite construction (southern end of the eastern bloc) was found in the explored yard section. However, the material findings in Ispod Mira Street and the sewage canal fixed in the southwestern section of the yard (above which an embrasure had been built) proved that the southern ending was not authentic. These results impose several questions: First, why and when were the southern room and the southern part of the eastern wall narrowed? Second, when was the shooting range (embrasure) built? Its relative chronology can be established from the sewage canal on which it was built. The first issue can be explained by fixed findings in the yard and in probes no. 1 and 2, and their connections with the cortine, which connects the St. Savior and St. Stephan bastions, built in the second half of the 17th century. We can also consider the possibility that it was built in 1418 when the old wall facing the sea was doubled. An earlier date can be concluded for when the south section of the established block was narrowed, because of the discovered shooting-range, which on the basis of its shape can be dated to the early 15th century. The findings stratography confirms that the shooting-range was built in the second phase, when the southern section of the eastern wall was narrowed. However, if typological characteristics were not relevant for datation (which I doubt), the shooting-range existed for a short period, i.e. during the construction and widening of the seaward wall in 1418, or during the construction of the cortine in the second half of the 17th century (which is more difficult to prove with its typology). One of the most interesting findings of the recent research is a unique example of a wellcistern, whose shape (fringe) has all typological characteristics of a well, but according its water collection it can typologically be classified as a cistern.
