Arheological route in Maribor

Arheological route in Maribor | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

A new archeological route connects all the important archeological sites that were previously scattered across Maribor’s suburbs. The archeological route will connect important archeological sites, such as Villa Rustica in Radvanje, Betnava and Bohova, archaelogical site Poštela, the burial mounds in Pivola and the Hoče crypt.

Knapco's insight:

Maribor is one of European Capitals of Culture 2012. On the southern edge of the Maribor suburbs, along the north-east – south-west archaeological settlement axis (Radvanje – Betnava – Bohova – Hoče – Slivnica), we can find rich archaeological sites, partly presented “in situ” but mostly completely unknown to the public. During the prehistoric era, they were connected by the settlements along the outermost edges of the Pohorje Hills which gave them shelter, and during the antiquity, by the fertile area of the Roman road by the Drava River that shows both the direction and the power of the Roman colonization in the Podravje area.
