PROZOR-RAMA, 4 October (BelTA - FENA) - Archaeological research at the Gradac site in the Prozor-Rama municipality has continued today, while the first phase of the research took place in May this year.

After the completion of the excavation in the first phase, archeologist Snjezana Vasilj presented some findings, pointing out that a monumental Roman cistern had been found as well as a stone block in the supporting wall with the Illyrian God Silva carved. That stone block was removed and left on safe to avoid destruction.

Also, in the first phase of the work, a large number of ceramic fragments were found, which indicate that there was life before the Romans, i.e. from the Neolithic period.

At the beginning of the second phase of the research, archeologist Snjezana Vasilj said that this research campaign would go in two directions.

"The first one is the continuation of works in the and around the Roman cistern, while the second part will focus on prehistoric findings. During the research of the cistern we found a lot of prehistoric material that can be used to track the past of this region" - Vasilj said.

The mentioned works are financed by the Municipality of Prozor-Rama with the cooperation with experts from the Department of Archeology at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Mostar University.
