Pre-Historic Farmer Unearthed in Bulgaria
Archeologists found the skeleton on the riverbank of the local Skut River. The finding was approximately dated back 9,000 years, which makes the "Bulgarian farmer" five centuries older than the already known humans to have lived on the Balkan Peninsula.
The farmer's skeleton was revealed during excavation works in a pre-historic village unearthed from a depth of 2 m. The village seemed to be very well preserved after being devasted by a big fire.
Archeologists said quoted by Bulgarian National Radio that the people living on these lands in pre-historic times were the first to invent ceramics and to build thermally isolated solid houses. They were convinced that the Ohoden finding would redraft the history of human civilization.
