A unique late-Antique period nobleman’s compound, built by a local German emperor in the style of Roman buildings underwent investigation.

Recognition of the significance of the discovery required several months of analysis including not only the uncovered foundations but mainly the findings. Among these are many Roman coins depicting the emperors Constantine the Great and Valentinian and luxury ceramics imported from the province of Pannonia.

A surprising discovery was the grave of a woman from the Migration era (5th -6th AD) containing a deformed skull.

The research was conducted under the auspices of the non-state scientific organization Via Magna, led by archaeologist Milan Horňák.
