The Pauline monastery of All Saints in Streza was founded in 1374 by the endowment of magistrate Ivan Bissen. Within the monastery there is also the monastery Church of All Saints, fully explored, which makes a rare example in the area of late medieval Slavonia.The monks have abandoned the monastery in about 1540 due to the increasing Ottoman incursions and found refuge in the safer Lepoglava. The monastery was then taken over by Varaždin General Reserve and shortly therafter was abandoned and completely overthrown during the next four centuries. During seven seasons of archaelogical research (2006 -2012) the external dimensions of monastery complex were determined and the monastery Church was completely explored. Inside the church, a total of 97 graves have been excavated, of which 88 were made of earth and only 9 walled tombs. The conducted anthropological analysis on a sample of 50 deceased showed that men were prevalent, with 40 in comparision to only 10 women.Only 22 tombs have had finds, among which iron buckles are the most numerous, making 70% of all finds. Besides buckles, there have also been other finds like knives, keys, fetters, grains and individual finds of ring, breverl, horseshoe and the spur rowel. A total of 40 new finds were processed from which we learn more about funeral practices in the late Middle Ages. All the finds date back to the time between the founding (terminus ante quem non) and the abandonment of the monastery (terminus post quem non). Written sources are also helpful in interpretation of grave entities, primarily endowments and wills, because through them we learn very valuable informations about the social occasions of that time. This resulted in an interdisciplinary approach that allows for a more accurate interpretation of the grave entities of the monastery church in Streza.
