Europe's Oldest Child Skeleton Excavated in Bulgaria
The leader of the excavations, archaeologist Georgi Ganetsovski, said the remains are partly damaged, but the finding speaks of a funeral ceremony of religious character.
The 8000 years old skeleton is supposed to be the most ancient one in Europe that had been found intact.
The finding was made at the south end of a pre-historical funeral facility, where archaeologists found a whole skeleton of a woman a year ago. The woman skeleton has been dated 8100 year BC and is one of the most ancient in Europe. The pre-historic village where it was excavated is just two metres below the ground and is completely preserved in its original form.
It is supposed the inhabitants of the pre-historic village had been the first on the Balkans to discover pottery and built thermo-isolated homes.
