Ritual Angle and Early Medieval Necropolis in Brezje near Zreče
The contribution discusses a Late Roman and Early Medieval necropolis, situated in the village of Brezje near Zreče in northeastern Slovenia.

The main orientation of the burials, and at the same time one side of the triangle, is the winter solstice (. Christmas) sunrise. There are also two Bronze Age cemeteries situated within the system of the ritual angle.
