In September 2017, during the implementation of “Monumentalized Early Iron Age Landscapes in the Danube river basin”, an international project involving the Institute of Archaeology from Zagreb along with partners from five Central European countries, the archaeological team of the Institute of Archaeology determined that one of the most famous prehistoric monuments in Croatia and one of the few giant unexplored prehistoric burial mounds in Central Europe had been robbed and severely damaged during the robbery. At the time of writing, the police investigation is complete and the suspects in this serious culturocide are awaiting the start of the trial. Because of the danger of further damage to this archaeological monument, the intervention funds of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia were used by the Institute of Archaeology to start emergency rescue excavations at Gomila in Jalžabet in early winter 2017 already, and to continue them in 2018 and 2019. The excavations in the structure of the Gomila grave chamber and the work on the dromos were continued during 2019. A small trench was opened on the eastern slope of the large tumulus, and flotation and sieving were continued of the archaeological layers from the excavations. The urgent rescue excavations of the Jalžabet Gomila and the entire archaeological landscape along the Bistričak stream fit perfectly into the sub-theme A4: Ritual within the Strategy of the Scientific Activity of the Institute.
