SREBRENICA Bosnia-Hercegovina, Yugoslavia.

Located 80 km NE of Sarajevo. The exploitation of the silver mines in the area reached its high point in the early part of the 3d c. A.D., as indicated by the extensive traces of Roman settlement and mining activity uncovered there. In the Middle Ages Srebrenica succeeded Domavia as the administrational center of mines in the region.
