Europe's oldest town unearthed


www.skynews.com.au

Archeologists claim to have discovered Europe's oldest town in the north east of Bulgaria.

Excavations have uncovered skeletons, walls, a series of pits used for rituals - as well as parts of a gate.

Carbon analysis has dated the findings to more than a millennium before the start of the ancient Greek civilisation.

This is absolutely amazing!!!

Too bad this is all there is for the time being. I do hope they find further objects in these excavations. Imagine what else there could be! A millennium older than Ancient Greece...wow!

I will attempt to keep this thread updated as more news roles out.

What does ATS think about this awesome find?

No, but I do struggle to understand how with a topic that clearly interests you so much... you didnt try to read any more about it elsewhere.
Anyway, you asked what I thought.

I posted it up straight away just in case if others were interested. I then went on further (just like i said) to look for info and update the thread. I checked back and found your reply.

Thanks again.

I am very interested incurrent ancient European findings because they tend to unearth stuff that doesn't fit with mainstrean archeology. Such as:

Now this? What will they ultimately find here?? Yet another "finding" that doesn't quite fit with current theories?

Modern Bulgaria covers the area that was know in antiquity as Thrace, and part of what is now Macedonia so its logical that some of the earliest European civilized settlements would be found there. I think what is quite surprising that there have not been many more finds in the area.

I think this is pretty much a nothing story. They found a town, they will find other traces of other towns etc around the place.

Did people really not expect things like this to be found?

Ancient Greece may have been the first civilization in Europe, but that doesn't mean there weren't people before it elsewhere in some capacity, even if they weren't technically a "civilization" compared to Ancient Greece or to Rome for example..


They will find more of these places around Europe and the world.
We've only been taught what has been found. And what has been found has been a small fraction of our species history imo.
