Sažetak

This paper describes the hillfort sites situated in the lower course of the River Zrmanja. The sites were detected through the analysis of aerial and satellite imagery and topographic and historical maps. The sites were confirmed through field and aerial surveys. The majority of the sites are relatively small and built in favorable situations in the Zrmanja canyon or in the 2.5 km zone around the river. Groups may be defined for sites with specific characteristics, such as the dominance of linear and smaller structures. The majority of the sites lack soil deposits. Certain sites display different characteristics. Velika Gradina and Bojnik at Kruševo are considerably larger than the average sites in the area, while Berberova Gradina contains rich cultural layers. The hillfort Gradina at Muškovci has the most monumental dry stone wall architecture in the region, and it stands out as a significant prehistoric fort.
