Iron age grave

Srpenica - grave finds

In Srpenica, a grave from the end of the Early Iron Age or the beginning of the Late Iron Age was discovered, which contained interesting grave finds. The Certosa fibula and winged axe were typical of the local population, while the two-part shield emblem and the spear butt that were intentionally destroyed during the funeral ceremony are of Celtic origin. This duality of the grave makes it difficult to interpret the burial. It is possible that the grave was intended for a native who was equipped with Celtic armaments, or for a foreigner belonging to any of the Celtic military formations that were paving their way across the Alps to Italy in the late 4th and early 3rd centuries BC. The finds are now kept by the Tolmin Museum.
