Abstract: The article informs about the results of a verifying excavation of a new site Vysoká, in cadastre of the village Ľubietová. The village lies in the area of occurrence of polymetallic and ferrous ores in north-western direction from the stratovolcano Poľana. The settlement of the village area dates back to the Aeneolithic. A hoard of bronze objects from the Late Bronze Age is known from here. In the Middle Ages Ľubietová belonged to seven Central Slovak royal mining towns. In the village we can find the remains of an anti-Turkish fort from the 2nd half of the 16th century. In 2014 the survey of the site Vysoká has started. The excavation was a combination of trenches and metal detector survey. The survey gave us a large collection of prehistoric pottery and metal objects. In this article the artefacts found by amateur treasure hunters are presented as well. Based on the finds, we can date the site into the phases from Ha A to LT D. The aim of further research is to identify the locations of prehistoric copper and iron mines.
