Plocnik is a village in the municipality of Prokuplje

Not long ago, an important European-archaeology excavation site was found in Plocnik. At this site, and in Belovode, archaeologists have found the earliest current evidence of copper smelting, dating from between 5500 BCE and 5000 BCE. This shows that the Copper Age started 500 years earlier than previously thought, and probably somewhere near this region.
