Museum “Neolithic Dwellings”

100 National Tourist Sites

Of particular interest are the two Neolithic dwellings from the Neolithic age, built on the eastern slope of a hill, near a water source. An ominous event contributed to their preservation: the settlement to which they belonged around 5,500 BC was suddenly burned down, the roofs and walls of wooden stakes interlaced with rods and plastered with clay collapsed, but the whole survived household goods. Between 80 and 120 ceramic vessels were found in each of the dwellings, as well as charred cereals: lentils and fenugreek, barley and wheat, which give an idea of the level of agriculture in that era. Neolithic dwellings, part of the city’s historical museum, are in a specially built building, where a complete inventory is also presented: hand mills, ovens for baking bread. But here there are many more examples of prehistoric art discovered during the archaeological research of the region – cult sculpture, as well as beautiful ornaments made of seashells, bone and marble.
