During rescue excavations conducted at the street address Matije Gupca 8 at Ervenica in the city of Vinkovci in 2003, the remains of a Vučedol horizon and traces of human habitation during the late classical B-2 stage of the Vučedol culture were discovered. A large quantity of ceramics, remains of burned floors and results of earlier research lead to the conclusion that this site was part of a larger settlement that was centred on the Tržnica (‘Marketplace’) tell. During research so far conducted in the territory of Ervenica, the remains of four house foundations and five waste pits have been recorded. The link to the neighbouring Tržnica tell is obvious due to the similarities between the ceramics and above all the location on two naturally elevated sites divided only by the confluence of the Ervenica Stream into the Bosut River. Excavations at Matije Gupca 8 have only confirmed the hypothesis that two distinguished Vučedol sites simultaneously existed in the Vinkovci territory as part of a single settlement: the larger on the Tržnica tell centred on the site of today’s Hotel Slavonija, and the somewhat smaller one in neighbouring Ervenica.
