Archaeologists have found increasing evidence that graves which were found near the Croatian town of Topusko (Sisak-Moslavina County) in 2009, contain traces from a separate culture, the "colapis culture", which is described in ancient Roman writings.
The results of the analysis and restoration of the contents of 13 grave sites discovered in 2009 in the Illyrian settlements near Topusko, indicated sensational physical evidence of the existence of 'colapis culture', which may date back as far as the 5th century BC. Archaeologist Lazo Cuckovic shared with the media his beliefs also after experts from Mainz in Germany visited the Karlovac Municipal Museum to analyse the discovery.
"Immediately upon finding the grave in August 2009, due to the abundant woven metallic headwear, necklaces and ornaments on the legs and arms, we assumed that we have found a princess from as early as the Iron age," said Cuckovic, reports Croatian radiotelevison.
"By analyzing the crown of a tooth it was confirmed that it was a woman that was buried in the grave, and her headdress is unique in the world because it has two metal ornaments decorated with braided horns and amber glass beads. Across Europe there is little headgear in the shape of horns, and until now nothing has been found shaped and decorated like this," concluded Cuckovic.
