The remains of Roman urns have been discovered by workers expanding a private carpark in the area of Put Dragulina.
Workers have uncovered a large number of graves the owner immediately stopped all works upon arriving at the site, 4 stone urns and several tombstones were left intact. A glass balsamary was found in one of the urns while a bronze needle was found among the bones in the second urn. It is believed several graves were destroyed during excavation works and material was taken to a dump site due to the fact that the owner was not present when construction works started.
Archaeologists state that their claim of the great density of graves on this site is confirmed by the remains visible in the profile of the excavated wall foundation where three more graves were noticed with deceased buried stone urns along with a damaged carved stone grave cover for which they believe to be a tombstone of one of the deceased.
A total of 18 graves have been found since the archaeologists are still on location, they expect to find a few more.
