Bronze age settlement
The model of a Bronze Age house

The oldest piece of evidence showing that the pier at the confluence of the Idrijca and Soča rivers used to be inhabited is the ruins of the Bronze Age building. The building did not have stone foundations. The whole construction was leaning on props, dug into a cave and surrounded by a pile of stones. Pieces of kitchen pottery dating back to the period of the middle to the late Bronze Age (1200 – 1000 B.C) were discovered inside the building.
