Volunteers of the New Acropolis work in the archaeological site of the Medieval town of Dubrovnik

 

The archaeological site of the Medieval town of Dubrovnik, located 19 kilometers from Sarajevo, today is a national monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Thanks to the initiative of several enthusiasts whose work has been recognized and supported by the scientific community over the past two decades, the Medieval town of Dubrovnik and the nearby Kopošići necropolis, have become archaeological sites of significant discoveries.

Volunteers of the New Acropolis joined the team of experts and students from the Institute of Archaeology of the University of Sarajevo in the excavation works.

The archaeological finds are numerous: from arrows, cannonballs, luxurious medieval pottery, to a brocade cloak made of silk interwoven with gold and silver threads. All these can be seen today in the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
