In the period between October 5 and 27, 2012, the Institute of Archaeology carried out archaeological investigations at the site Torčec-Cirkvišće. The goal of the season was to find the rest of the wall whose negative and modest stone remains were discovered in 2011. After the plough layer was removed, it was revealed that the wall was preserved in situ only in the length of 50 cm. Apart from these remains of the foundation, in the south-western part of the sondage the poorly preserved remains of another stone structure were also discovered. Like foundation SU 205, this structure lies on a thin layer of gravel above the virgin soil. These walls differ both in their direction and in the binding mortar, so that we may conclude that they belonged to different structures or to different phases of the same structure. In the course of the season, 55 graves were also investigated. They can mostly be dated to the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern period and they belonged to the parish cemetery. In addition to these graves, a considerably older grave G 108 was also discovered, in which a ceramic vessel was placed between the feet of the deceased and a corroded metal object was found on his belt – probably a knife. Based on its appearance, texture and decorations the vessel – and thus also the grave – can be dated to the end of the 8th and beginning of 9th century, as confirmed by the 14C analysis of the bones of the deceased.
