Neolithic village found at Prague

24 May
The Neolithic settlement is found in the northern district of Bubeneč in a bend of the Vltava river that was found to be a good place to live at by those earliest “Czech” farmers. It had good defenses, plenty of water and easy access to fertile lands to work.
According to archaeologist Radek Balý:
We found two longhouses from the Neolithic. One of the big houses was rectangular in shape and was about 7,000 years old. The other was trapezoidal and was about 6,500 years old. The only remnants of the buildings that we found were the holes and grooves left by wooden structures, so we know the circumference and have a few relics of the way the houses were divided. We also found a burial that was composed of big ceramic pottery full of pieces of ashes and bones, standing on a big, flat stone. It was covered by a small bowl and two other flat stones. That find is about 3,000 years old. We found another grave in the research area, but it was very disrupted. We can say that it was much older, but that’s all we can say for now.
