In this year’s campaign at the Stari grad Old Town site in Ivanec the investigation started at the semicircular north-eastern tower of the Old Town, while those in the area west of the north tower and to the north along the defence wall of the Old Town were resumed. Parts of a semicircular apse were discovered adjacent to the defence wall to the north, with children’s graves east of the apse. The building is a Romanesque church with a semicircular apse. That these graves belong to the earliest horizon of burials is evidenced by their features, orientation and presence of grave linings. The complete layout of the church has been put forward. Two rooms have been documented next to the church to the west. The façade wall of the Romanesque church at the same time doubles as the eastern wall of the entrance hall to the church. Unlike in the interior of the church, where no burials were documented, five adult burials have been discovered in the narthex during the investigations carried out so far. To the west lies a rectangular room whose wide walls reveal that these were probably foundation walls for a high and strong tower, that is, a church steeple.
