In Slovakia during excavations in the village of Zelený Kryček near Trnava, archaeologists discovered many fragments of pottery, as well as bone and stone tools older than 6000 years.
The Slovak Spectator told about the discovery. It was made literally beneath the wall of a medieval fortress that was once the village of Trnava. The research work was carried out on the site given to the investor for construction.
The result was the discovery of an object that supposedly was part of a large Neolithic settlement. Archaeologists excavated a large number of fragments of ceramic vessels that were covered with patterns.
From these images, scientists have found that the items were made by representatives of the little-studied Lendiel culture, a Central European Neolithic culture (ca. 4900-3400 B.C.), and its successor was the funnel-shaped cup culture.
Tools and tools made of stone and animal bones were also found. Analysis of the artifacts showed that they were over 6000 years old. They were probably created by masters of the early Lendel culture. However, archaeologists note a very high level of performance.
Until today, the question of the existence of a large Neolithic settlement here has remained open,” says Peter Grznar of the Regional Monuments Council in Trnava. – Its discovery is the result of happy circumstances, because the remains of this site have been preserved in a narrow area between the castle wall and the long-filled city moat.
By the way, four years ago the remains of an ancient settlement were found in the same village on Františkánská and Štefánikova Street. Scientists believe that the new find belongs to the same Neolithic settlement. This means that it was bigger than it was thought until now
