"Before the glory that was Greece and Rome, even before the first cities of Mesopotamia or temples along the Nile, there lived in the Lower Danube Valley and the Balkan foothills people who were ahead of their time in art, technology and long-distance trade."

Its good to finally see science has, "pulled from obscurity", of what little is truly shared with people about history, a good example of an apparently peaceful culture, the likes of which predated supposed tyranny of babylon by nearly 2000years.
They lived in the region of Greece, Macedonia, or near the Danube; smelted copper, used gold ornamentation, farmed, equal lifestyles for each member, mother goddess figurines, and signs of trade over vast distances with sea faring cultures...possibly remnants of atlantis...for all who speculate.
With absence of written language, researchers are reffering to them as 'Old Europe'.
Enjoy~

Thanks, totally did not know about that. I wonder if any of their myths survived? From wiki i saw that there is no consensus on writing skills of these people so it is a question if anything survived in our common memory.
Maybe legends of Balkan people can help?

There is a book called "Lost civilizations of the Stone Age" which you might find interesting if you want to know more about this subject. There are some inventions, like the mortar & pestle, which might have been invented as early as 250,000 years ago.

balkan mythology says that the ark of noah wasn't a boat but a big walled cowpen on the edge of a desert that survives a flood which destroys the huge three ringed city it overlooks.

infact thats mesopotamian, egyptian, persian, greek and ... mythology too. its a good thing that the cowpen survived.

in the 6th minute of this video they talk about the little known "sea" these folks lived on.
