Architecture of Lasinja culture settlements in the light of new investigations in northern Croatia
Keywords: above-ground houses, Lasinja culture, Beketinci, northern Croatia
AbstractThe site of Beketinci, Bentež, stands out among Lasinja settlements as the site of the largest uncovered surface – the excavation at 30 900m2 revealed a portion of a Lasinja culture settlement. Its western part (covering 24 700m2) was dedicated to working activities (working features: clay-extraction pits, working pits, self-standing partitions, pottery kilns, and wells), while in the eastern, residential, part (extending over 6200m2 of excavated surface) we uncovered a cluster of 5 rectangular above-ground houses, two residential pit-houses, and five residential or working pit-houses. Absolute dates for this settlement span the period between 3900 and 3300 BC, dating it to the late phase of Lasinja culture.
