It is located in the plains along the right bank of the Moravica river, between the Pilatovići and Prilipac villages (west Serbia). The site is, in fact, a large prehistoric necropolis, consisting of 17 tumuli with several barrows. It is dated to the period of the early Iron Age.
In 1977-78, on the Trnjaci site, a large mound was investigated. In its centre there was a tombs of an elliptic shape, built of river boulders, where male cremated remains were found, presumably an elder. At the side of the deceased, an Egyptian scarab was found.
