This year in sondage II, a thick layer of erosion was defined into which posts were dug. At this time these posts cannot be connected into groups which could serve to reconstruct the structure more precisely. A field survey covered 1.6 km of the southern slopes of Mount Kalnik at 480-600 m above sea level. An extensive field survey in a forest is quite a demanding endeavour, made worse by the erosion amply present in this area. The preliminary results of the field survey indicate the western rim of the site, which can be placed on the position of a small and large meadow, where the sondage did not yield traces of archaeological material. The area east of the Igrišće site was surveyed up to the position of the old town of Kalnik, that is, the meadow beneath the town where ceramic material was discovered. In certain places it was possible to define the site-s northern boundary, which spreads right along the cliffs at 600 m or more above sea level. Nevertheless, at the very top of the Kalnik ridge a few smaller plateaus can be seen where ceramic material from prehistory and antiquity was found Pl. 1. The most numerous are finds from the Bronze Age, and there are also finds from the Late Iron Age, Antiquity and the Middle Ages.
