HOMELAND OF IRON / DOMOVINA ŽELEZA
The knowledge of ironworking emerges somewhere in the Anatolian-Iranian region during the period 1500–1000 BC.
This book shows the ancient metallurgical process based upon important documentary investigations supported by modern experiments.
The main mining and iron production area of the South West part of Slovenija in the 6th century BC was Bohinj, the beautiful valley in the heart of the Julian Alps.
It formed part of the St. Lucija culture - Hallstatt group.

Up to the 19th century historians belived that Slovenians are descendants of an ancient people who left their traces in the names of hills, valleys and rivers.
