Abstract

Th e results of test excavations conducted at the medieval
Dubovac Castle near Karlovac are presented in this work.
Emphasis is placed on analysis of the prehistoric material,
which largely dates to the first half of the first millennium
BC and, to a lesser extent, from the fourth millennium
BC. The stratigraphy of the site is presented together with
typological and statistical analysis of the pottery. Th e researched
portion of the site is situated on a conical, naturally
formed mound that was also considerably shaped by
human activity. Th e structures from the prehistoric period
are mostly traces of habitats. An older, stone-built phase
of the castle was also discovered which has not been reliably
dated. Among the ceramic material, stylistic analogies
were ascertained with the wider sphere of sites of the
fi nal phase of the Bronze Age and the onset of the Iron Age,
particularly in the Danube and Drava River zones. Based
on the statistical analysis, certain technological traditions
of pottery production have been distinguished. Particular
attention was dedicated to the problem of the transition
from the Bronze to the Iron Age in the Kupa river zone,
given the discovered artefacts.
