Varna Necropolis

Varna Necropolis

The earliest traces of human presence in the Varna region date back to the Early Paleolithic Age (about 100 000 BC). In the museum exposition the period is illustrated by Middle Paleolithic flint tools, found mostly during the construction of plants in the valley of river Devnia. Late Paleolithic age is represented by additional flint tools and artifacts, found during excavations in the locality Pobitite kamani. The so-called Little Cave, near the village of Beloslav is studied and in addition to flint tools have been found bones of animals, hunted by people back in the ages. Maesolithic age findings have important place in regional history, especially those found in the locality Pobitite kamani near Varna – the only archeological site dating back to Middle Paleolithic Age (about 10000–7000 BC) on Bulgarian territory. These artifacts are so called flint microlithes – testimony that man was well aware of tool parts, produced of small flint pieces and other material – wood, bones et other. Some flint pieces have been used as arrows tops.
