6. Polished stone axes from Spaha
Eight polished stone axes, found at the archaeological site of Spaha, have been analysed using different analytical methods in order to characterize the artefacts and define their most probable provenance. The small Spaha collection testifies to connections with the Balkans and the Danubian area. Raw materials coming from Italy or Eastern Alps, which are known in the archaeological sites of the Ljubljansko barje, are here completely absent. This difference can be partially explained by the geographical position of the site at the Southern part of nowadays Slovenia.
Keywords: Spaha, polished stone axes, archaeometric analyses, prehistoric connections, Sava Group period, Lasinja Culture, HKBV phase
