New military camp in Croatia under excavation
October 1st, 2004

Zagreb - An ornament for horses dating back to the 1st century A.D. has been found during excavations of a Roman Empire-era military camp near the southern Croatian city of Drnis, local media reports said on Friday.
Croatian Minister for Culture Bozo Biskupic said the ornament - a small, crescent-shaped object fashioned from bronze and designed to be worn on the animal's head - was a "European archaeological sensation" because it was the biggest such item found and very well-preserved.

A similar item was excavated near Magdeburg, Germany, but it was smaller and less well-preserved, it was said.
Excavations of the camp are still underway and archaeologists believe more precious items could be found. - Sapa-dpa
