A unique house found near Chirpan

A large house from the Neolithic period was found by archaeologists from the Bulgarian-Greek science team in the region “Halka bunar”. The locale is between the villages Partizanin and Gorno Belevo, near the city Chirpan.

This was announced by the chief scientist Milena Tonkova from the National archeology institute. She is the leader of the Bulgarian team. According to her, the house dates back from the 6th millenium BC and is a unique find, because underneath it’s crumbled walls there are saved pieces of fine utensils that reveal a lot about life in these times.

The house will be further analyzed by the two teams. The ancient home is near clay houses from a relatively younger Thracian village.
