The Bulgarian archaeologists claimed they had found the oldest prehistoric city in Europe, the BBC reported on the 1st of November 2012. The oldest prehistoric city in Europe, located near Provadia, Bulgaria, was fortified with large stone fortress. The scientists believe that it was an important producer of salt. The archaeologists believe that the town lived about 350 people and they determine its age at between 4,700 and 4,200 BC, or about 1,500 years before the Mycenaean civilization. The scientists say the villagers used to boil water from a local spring and used it to make bricks of salt, which served to keep the meat. In these times, salt was a valuable commodity, and this could explain the huge walls surrounding the village. The excavations at the site revealed the remains of two-storey houses, many pits used for carrying out rituals and parts of gates and fortresses.
