Quite often important archaeological discoveries are made by accident. This is the case with the exhibits in the Stomorica Archaeological collection. Chance finds by the side of the road from Novalja to Lun, on a field called Vidas, these pieces of jewellery have been dated all the way back to prehistoric times, and quite possibly show evidence of a prehistoric necropolis.

The collection is comprised of several bracelets, the most significant of them a very lovely ribbed cuff bracelet (common in the late bronze age). Some of the items include a large round-headed pin, two arched fibula clasps, and an especially pretty fibula decorated with amber. Similar pieces have been found in other, nearby parts of the Croatian coast (namely, Kvarner), but some of them, like one of the smaller pins, unfortunately badly damaged), are rather unique. The collection is on permanent display in Novalja and can be seen daily from 10:00 to 13:00, except Sundays.
