Neolithic site unearthed in Serbia
Artefacts from the Neolithic have been found at a site where digging had begun for a new petrol station near Niš (Serbia). The Archaeological Bureau for the Protection of Monuments has found prehistoric remains dating back to between 5,000 BCE and 2,000 BCE, archaeologist Aleksandar Aleksić told Tanjug. "We uncovered remains from the Middle Neolithic Age and a dugout containing ceramic and animal bones," Aleksić said.
According to an initial analysis, the dugout dates back to between the bronze and iron ages, which means it is from the end of the second millennium (13-14 centuries before Christ). The latest discovery once against confirms that the archaeological location of Medijan has greater significance than it is usually credited. The site is located near the road leading from Niš to Niška Banja.
