History

At the village of Banja e Malishevës, situated southeast from the town of Malisheva, on the left side of the Mirusha river shore, an archaeological site known by the toponomy ‘Trojet e Vjetra’ is found. This archaeological site has a character of a burial mound (tumulus) and was erected during the Iron Age, but reused during the Early Medieval period. Investigations, respectively archaeological excavations where carried out at this location in 2005, which resulted with confirmation of graves identification, constructed with stone slabs and very rich with grave goods. Among the most important findings, Early Medieval jewelry made of bronze like rings, bracelets, and necklaces with a symbol of Christian crosses were recorded and documented.
