Even after the actions of the sixties and the seventies the tombstones of Dalmatian Highlands have remained mostly unstudied, even unrecorded. This study aims at gradual filling of that gap, while also proposing some new iconographical explanations. It lists 39 monuments, of which sixteen are decorated. Unfortunately, many such monuments have been destroyed, but those which have survived could tell us a lot about the religious, cultural and economic life of the Highlands villages at the end of the Middle Ages.
Astral symbols, moon and stars, are found on five monuments, as well as the cross. Weapons (sword, shield, bow and arrows) are found also on five monuments, and peasant tools on 2. Heraldic motifs (lilies) are featured by 3 monuments. Some of the slabs carry more than one motif, e.g., the panel in front of the entrance to the church at Prgomet (fig. 9). The astral symbols are most likely a reflection of star lore of the Highlands population. The non-schematic arrangement of the motifs indicates the shape of the sky at the time of death. This state could be simulated by the Red Shift 3 program. Although there is no doubt that this popular experience was based on magic, Christianity played its role too. An analysis of weapons provides expected results, so we find, e.g., gothic swords (figs. 3, 5, 6, 12). We also encounter examples of peasant equipment. The heraldic lily (Fleur-de-Lys) is a reflection of a long rule of the Anjou dynasty in Croatia. The cross, as the fundamental religious symbol, shows several variants. The limestone tomb monuments are the most valuable remains of the material culture from the late Middle Ages, not only in the above-listed villages, but in the entire Highlands. Although their number is limited, they provide a valuable insight into funerary customs of a late medieval rural community.
