Abstract

The purpose of this paper is analysis and comparison of visibility patterns (as elements of landscape structuring) between a prehistoric hillfort with a rampart and Early Modern period fortification at Bojnik, a site situated at the mouth of the Zrmanja river. Multi-period archaeological site Bojnik is described in detail which is situated at a prominent location above the position where the Zrmanja river flows into the Novigrad sea. The remains of monumental prehistoric architecture roughly dated to the regional Bronze Age and the remains of a smaller fortification from the Early Modern period were documented. The main purpose of this fortification was the control of the sea route at Novigrad sea and sailing along the Zrmanja river. The research for this paper utilized various kinds of data acquired through archival research, field survey, analysis of small finds, and geospatial analyses.
