In the area of the hamlet of Zakotorac in Donja Banda, municipality of Orebić, in the middle part of the Pelješac peninsula, trial archaeological excavations were performed at the site of Gomile. It is a prehistoric cemetery with at least 27 rock tumuli and with drywall structures that were later added to the tumuli. The excavations involved only two such added structures (S-1 and S-2), on the south side of one tumulus. The fill of the western structure (S-1), with no remains of skeletons or graves, contained a complete and only slightly damaged bronze Illyrian helmet of the III A2-a type, dated to the 4th century BC. The eastern space (S-2), which was added later, contained what was defined as grave 1. The bioarchaeological analysis determined that the grave contained at least 13 individuals: ten adults and three children. The radiocarbon analysis of two samples chronologically identified at least two burial periods: the end of the Late Bronze Age (980–810 BC) and the beginning of the Late Iron Age (380–170 BC). Metal finds from grave 1 include the remains of iron weaponry (at least three spears and a battle knife), bronze and silver items of costume (12 fibulae, 19 pins) and jewellery (five bracelets and rings, glass and amber beads), and toiletries (tweezers). Pottery finds include the fragments of at least 31 different vessels of Greek origin from the 4th century BC.
