The fort Sokolac is referred to in mediaeval documents as Sokol. The earliest charter concerning Sokolac as a royal fort, with Ivan the 1st, known as Uza, and Grgur Eten, as castellans, dates from 1395. It fell to the ottomans in 1592. In plan, the fortifications from a triangle. The Sokolac fort has two towers, the gate house and the keep, linked by a bailey, with a moat outside the west rampart. All the ramparts have breastworks, and houses abutting onto them, of witch the only surviving evidence is same hewn stone. Little is known of fort in ottoman times, since it was overshadowed in strategic importance by the nearby Ripac fort. An inventory conducted in 1833 revealed that Sokolac contained just two small cannon, while an undated census records that the garrison consisted of only twelve man. A prehistoric hillfort occupied the entire upper plateau, including the area where the Sokolac fort was later build. the oldest archaeological artefacts found there date from the late bronze age.
