This area focuses on sites in Eastern Serbia with evidences of the increased copper production and ore exploitation during the Middle and Late Bronze Ages. The key site is Trnjane, situated on a high and unfortified terrace near Bor with copper slag piles (estimated around 20 Tons) and belonging urn graveyard.
Indications of metallurgical activity were also provided by the recent excavations at Ružana and cremation burials of the same pattern like in Trnjane were documented in nearby Borsko Jezero and Krivaljski Kamen. Thus, the situation in Eastern Serbia represents an ideal starting point for the visual presentation of the regional society highly involved in the production of copper, i.e. the community of prehistoric metalworkers and miners.
Combining the existing archaeological and survey data with new geophysical screening and GIS data capture, the final goal is a digital reconstruction of workshops, mining spots and burial places.
