Recent research of the bed of the Cetina river brought to light an abundance of interesting archaeological material from various periods. The artefacts found come overwhelmingly from prehistoric times, the metal periods in particular, from the times when these territories were inhabited by the Illyrian Delmates. Artefacts from the Late Bronze Age are most numerous, but there are many from the Early and Late Iron Ages as well. These are, among other items, bronze and iron swords, knifes, spears and axes, fragments of shields, Greek-Illyrian helmets and greaves (knemidae), pottery shards, as well as various jewellery types - necklaces, bronze brooches (fibulae) and so on. Regarding the finds from the Classical period, prominent are items of iron tools and weaponry, coins, bronze vessels, inscriptions and ceramic artefacts, whereas among the finds from the medieval period one should put stress on various types of iron weaponry, axes, spears, swords and knives in particular, but also on diverse pottery shards. The majority of all the mentioned finds was grouped at the sites of Veliki and Mali Drinić, upstream from the present-day Trilj bridge.
