The Ossuary

Gorenjski muzej - Kostnica

After intermittent excavations on the extensive Old Slavic burial ground beside the Kranj parish church between 1953 and 1973, an archaeological monument was set up to the north of the church. One can see the foundations of a Late Antiquity octagonal baptistery with a semi-circular apse on the east side, the remains of the circular baptistery lower walls dating from late 13th century, the remains of a cemetery chapel and the tomb of the Eghk counts from the 15th century and a newer ossuary made up of carefully laid layers of skulls and limb bones of the deceased.
