Rescue excavation of the AN 7A Jagodnjak – Napuštene njive Abandoned fields at the Osijek – Beli Manastir motorway route covered an area of circa 4.4 hectares. The research explored parts of a fortified Bronze Age settlement and remains of an Antique settlement along the ancient road. On the largest part of the area investigated, numerous prehistoric pithouses and pits were recorded, most notably a ditch around the central part of the settlement situated on a small hill next to a water stream. On the basis of pottery and metal finds, the settlement can be dated to the Middle Bronze Age. In the northern section of the area, remains of an Antique settlement along the road that used to go from Mursa to the north were documented. The remains of the road consist of parallel ditch pits along which two skeleton graves were found, probably from the Antique period. The remains of the prehistoric and Antique settlement found during rescue excavation at AN 7A Jagodnjak – Napuštene njive suggest the extraordinary position of south Baranja in the communication network of the wider Carpathian Basin area.
