Sažetak
Archaeological excavation of the Novi Čeminac – Jauhov salaš (JASA) site was conducted in 2014/2015. The excavation revealed numerous archaeological structures that are dated from prehistoric to late medieval times. Eleven graves were also discovered on the site. Based on grave finds all of the graves were dated to the 5th century AD and the Ostrogoth culture. The skeletal sample consisted of 4 females, 5 males and 2 subadults. Of interest is the fact that 6 of the 11 skeletons had artificially deformed crania. Individuals with artificially deformed crania included 3 adult females, 2 adult males and a single subadult. The females were aged 15-40 years, both males were aged 30- 40, while the subadult (the first subadult with artificially deformed crania recovered in Croatia) was 6-7 years old at time of death. The crania were deformed by at least two different methods – circular oblique deformation and tabular erect deformation. The practice of artificially deforming crania has been present from the beginning of human history and was spread across the world. Archaeological cultures that practised this habit in Croatia include the Ostrogoths, Huns, Gepids and Avars. So far, artificially deformed skulls have been discovered in Croatia only as single finds.
