Knežak pri Pivki


Within the MALiAp project excavation took place in the immediate surroundings of the Iron Age site of Gradišče above Knežak. The project focuses on the archaeological landscape as a whole and, in this case, on the economic hinterland of the Iron Age town. By excavating a cairn, one of hundreds in a cairnfield, we want to find out for what purpose these cairns were created. Are they part of as of yet unknown agricultural activity, or something completely different?
