Trial excavations in 1988 in the hamlet of Golo south of the main settlement confirmed the existence of a Late Bronze Age burial ground at the location. Older literature also refers to Roman graves.[4] The foundations of an 8 m wide Roman road with a possible crossing over the Krka River have also been uncovered in the settlement.[5]
