Bulgarian archaeologists have discovered a 7 000-years-old settlement close to the northeast city
of Shumen.

The village dates back to the Stone-Copper Age, and is located in the locality of Chanadzhik, near
the village of Sushina and the Ticha Dam.

The archaeologists have discovered over 300 finds, most of which are made of marble.

"These items are extremely rare. They were worn by very specific people. These are decorations
that were not available to the masses. There are also others that are made of clay or bone,"
explained Stefan Chohadzhiev, an archaeology professor at the Veliko Tarnovo University, as
quoted by bTV.

The most valuable find of the archaeologists, however, is a fortification that protected the village mound from the west.

According to Ivan Babadzhanov, an archaeologist from the Regional History Museum in Shumen, the fortification probably consisted of a stone wall; the items discovered there are Chalcolithic (Copper Age) ceramics.
