Sažetak
Bezdanjača cave is located in the Lika region of Croatia. In 1965 excavations of the site yielded numerous human skeletons dated to Bronze Age, based on a series of radiocarbon dates (between 1350 and 1100 BC), pottery and metal objects found at the site. Due to a complex morphology of the cave (the entrance consists of a 30 meter deep vertical shaft, and the cave consists of two bigger and numerous smaller channels and chambers) it was not used as a living, but a burial site. There is evidence of elaborate burial rituals, such as presence of wooden and stone structures, traces of hearths, burnt animal bones, pottery, metal and bone artefacts. Skeletons were mostly placed in natural crevices or depressions, and not buried. In addition, alongside many human remains, animal skeletons (deer, wild pigs and other animals) were placed. Excavators note that remains of around 200 people were uncovered in the cave in a total of 57 graves, ten of which contained multiple (5-20) skeletons. Skulls of 35 individuals were given to the Institute for Anthropological Research for analysis. Based on morphological characteristics and details, sex, age, and data on pathologies have been obtained. Analyzed sample consists of 10 females and 10 males, one probable female and four probable males, one adult for which sex could not be established, and nine subadults. Five male skulls show blunt force trauma (3 antemortem and two perimortem). Further, one female adult skull shows signs of healed trepanation on the frontal bone.
