Medieval Kiln

The finds dating from the medieval period mostly include ceramic pots, tools, jewellery, and coins. The only architectural remains uncovered to date represent a large kiln for calcination of stone into lime, used for production of plaster needed for construction of the fort. Interestingly enough, the kiln has long been the object of quest by countless treasure hunters, as according to legend this was where the castellan of Golubac Voivode Jeremija hid the 12,000 ducats he got from the Ottomans when he sold them the Fortress.  Although disputed by the archaeological excavations, the tale of Jeremija’s treasure lives on to this day.
