Bronze Age vessel discovered in Macedonia
A unique vessel from the Mid-Bronze Age was discovered by archaeologists at the Tsarevi Kuli site near the town of Strumica in eastern Macedonia. According to the archaeologists, these latest finds only confirm what previous discoveries have suggested - that Strumica was a significant centre during its entire existence, through which passed cultural influences from the North to the South and from the East to the West.
On the southeastern slope of the site where in 2008 archaeologists concluded a prehistoric settlement existed, the team found richly decorated pots dating from the Mid-Bronze Age. The discovered vessel dates to somewhere between 1800 and 1540 BCE. "I think that with this vessel, for now unique for Macedonia, and with the other finds from that time, Tsarevi Kuli becomes one of the prehistoric centres in Macedonia," said archaeologist Zoran Ruyak, head of the Tsarevi Kuli excavations.
