Abstract

Archaeological research was conducted in the area of the building of trade centre Konzum in the former locality of the Olivieri garden, the ex-wood processing factory in Senj from April to October 2007. The research gave additional information and confirmation about the rich antiquity necropolis of which data was known before from literature. The necropolis was used for burials from the 1st to 3rd centuries AD. All the graves were found on the north-western horizon, mostly individual, incinerated with straight placed tegulas. Scattered grave finds were: ceramic pots, oil lamps, glass bottles, nails etc. During a review of the excavation a stone urn and an antique inscription were found. During the works on the north-eastern horizon fragments of architecture with a mosaic base and walls with a typical Roman building technique were found.
This research confirmed the area of antique Senia along which the urban area of the mentioned necropolis was placed and it represented its far north-western border. Rich archaeological and photo-documentation taken during the mentioned research relating to the beginning, duration and end of the works will serve for future additional elaboration of the material and for the comparison of the material remains found during previous research in this locality.
