A village from the Copper Age was found in northern Bulgaria. The village is situated just 800 metes away from the place where the bridge Vidin -Kalafat is to be built.

The archaeological treasure was found near the Antimovo village when a study in connection to the Danube Bridge 2 construction was made.

The ancient village is not within the road-bed of the bridge, but all necessary measures for its preservation will be taken, engineer Kostantin Zhiponov, one of the people dealing with the construction of the bridge said, cited by the local radio Gama.

Some of the finds will be transported to the archeological museum in the town. More researches will be launched in the spring of 2004.
