A Mysterious Grave Without a Body

Feb 8 - Oct 8 2023       Gosposka 15
In July and August 2022, during renovation of the hot water supply system in Argentina Park, archaeological research was carried out in the area between Štefanova ulica and Puharjeva ulica. The excavations uncovered part of Roman Emona’s northern cemetery. At one time, this would have extended along the road leading to Celeia (today’s Celje).

A total of 23 Roman graves were excavated, 22 of them inhumation burials and one that was presumably a cremation burial. Most of the graves contained no grave goods. Iron nails were found in some of them, leading to the conclusion that the deceased had been buried in a coffin or similar wooden structure.
