Sažetak The archaeological site of Torčec − Rudičevo is positioned east from the village Torčec in the municipality of Drnje (county of Koprivničko-križevačka), about 300 m in the east from the village border and the stream Gliboki, along the macadam path leading towards Stara Šoderica (Old Gravel Pit). At its eastern side, the position of Rudičevo is surrounded by the old, dried-up bed of Gliboki, which fills with water in the moist periods of the year. The elevated terrain ends in the west by a small branch, on which surface finds of ceramics as well as patches of dark earth have been noticed (Fig. 1.).
In the course of 2006, an experimental archaeological excavation was begun, on the occasion of which the investigated probe 1 (S-1), in the size of 5x5 m, was positioned by the north border of the acres, at the slope of the hill, which falls diagonally towards the old meander. Another probe (S-2), with the width of 10 m (E-W) and the length of 30 m (N-S), was placed in the southeast of the trench S-1, on the very highest part of the elevation of Rudičevo. Thus the investigated area of the trench S-1 was 43.25 m2 (Fig. 2.), and of the trench S-2 335.81 m2, i.e. the area investigated in 2006 amounts in total to cca. 380 m2 (Fig. 3.).
In the archaeological excavations carried out, a total of 12 artifacts was recorded, some of which probably represent parts of the last remains of medieval objects. One of them was recorded on the slope of the hill Rudičevo. It was destroyed through the flooding of the water from the meander, while the other remains were recorded on the uppermost part of the elevation. The most preserved object, from which also the largest number of the movable finds have been obtained, had a hearth and, although its archaeologically investigated part displayed the form of the letter L, it had probably been quadratic in its original form.
Apart from the remains of this house, in its immediate proximity, on the western side, a long and relatively narrow ditch was recorded, possibly representing a border or a remain of medieval parcellation between two objects, especially if the discovery of cultural artefacts on the western side of the ditch is taken into consideration, as they probably belong to the other, neighbouring object. This medieval ditch was intersected by a recent ditch with the width of about 1 m in which, apart from some animal bones, no finds were present. Towards the north slope of the hill, some additional cultural fills were registered, possibly object remains, but unfortunately preserved only in the deep furrows.
All burials of the supposed objects occur immediately below the ploughed layer, in the yellow sand layer (SU 002). The objects are very poorly preserved and represent the last remains of dwellings, some of which have been preserved in the thickness of merely a couple of centimetres.
Most frequent movable finds were fragments of crudely manufactured ceramic pots with slightly rounded or cut edges, ornamented by onefold waves or vertical lines on the shoulder and belly of the pot. A very interesting find, recorded in the most preserved object, are round, flat clay objects, the usage function of which shall be better known only after the expert processing has been carried out. As regards metal objects, several smaller iron objects have been collected, for instance parts of small knives, as well as objects of an undefined form. The most beautiful find is the fragment of a cobalt-blue glass perl, ornamented by a white irregular wave line.
By analogies to the mentioned characteristics of the ceramics collected, it may be concluded that the inhabitants of the rural settlement on the hill of Rudičevo in Torčec were resident on this spot in the periods of the High and Late Middle Ages.
