Abstract

Archaeological excavations carried out so far at the Stari Grad site in Ivanec have revealed 270 graves. The first graves at the site can be dated back to the end of the 11th or the beginning of the 12th centuries, and the last to the beginning of the 17th century. Based on stratigraphic relationships, the graves covered in this article can be dated back to the second half of the 13th or the beginning of the 14th centuries; they differ from others in that the deceased buried in them displayed perimortem traumas and had been buried with knives at their side. So far, grave 202 is the only grave found at the site which was covered by a gravestone. The perimortal traumas found on the skeletons from these graves are responsible for the death of the individuals analysed. Based on their characteristics, these traumas can be classified as cut wounds resulting from intentional violence between individuals.
