Prehistoric shrine found between Sozopol and Chernomorets

The municipality administration of Sozopol announced that a prehistoric shrine dating back to the second half of the sixth millenium B.C., was found during the construction activities of the camping site “Gradina”.

A group of archaeologists found the artifact by chance and studied the region for several months.

During the construction works of the Black Sea Star complex between Sozopol and Chernomorets, a group of archaeologists stumbled upon the remnants of a prehistoric shrine. In a six-metre deep shaft, the archaeologists find pieces of wood that date back to the third quarter of the sixth millenium B.C., making them practically the oldest pieces of wood ever found in Bulgaria.
