Gurina, Austria

On the hill Gurina on the northern side of an alpine valley in Carinthia settlement structures, burial mounds and a sanctuary from Early Iron Age running into Roman period were excavated. It is most famous for venetic inscriptions showing that this site was and important comminication point between the Hallstatt culture and northern italic cultural groups. It is also one of the first points that shows roman contact within a late celtic alpine territory.
