In October 2010, the first trial excavations were conducted in the archaeological zone of the Gradina Sveta Trojica near Starigrad-Paklenica. This zone encompasses the Liburnian hill fort settlement and Byzantine castrum. Several relatively small probes were opened on terraces on the slopes of the settlement. During an intensive field survey, surface finds were also collected. Apart from fragments of coarse pottery and amphorae, finds of iron nails from Roman soldiers’ shoes stand out, dating from the period of the Late Republic, along with a bronze fibula of the Aucissa type, which can also be associated with the Roman military presence. The find of a so-called protocertosa fibula is also interesting, on the basis of which the Liburnian settlement on this spot can be dated to as early as the 6th century BC.
