Židovar, a Celtic oppidum (settlement), is on the east border of the Deliblato Sands (Deliblatska Peščara), the river Karaš basin in Banat (Vojvodina). Archaeological investigations were conducted in 1948-49 and then once again were started in 1996 to continue up to the present day.
The fortified settlement dominates the area with palisades and dry stone walls. Comparisons and analogies with other Celtic settlements confirm all the characteristics of an oppidum in Židovar.  Besides a host of pottery objects and architectural remains, the ROMAN cultural horizon revealed weapons made of stone, bones, deer horns and metal. Large amounts of metal slag point to the fact that the Celts were engaged in ore processing.
