Bronze Age settlement comparable to New York

Archaeologists have discovered more human remains at a Bronze Age settlement near the village of Budmerice in the Bratislava Region.

At the site, which has been scrutinised by archaeologists since its discovery in the 1950s, latest findings include a well-preserved human skeleton and two thigh bones. Taking into account the human population at the time, the site could be compared to a settlement the size of New York, say archaeologists.

Findings at the settlement date back to the 18th and 15th centuries BC, which means “the skeletons, dwellings, fortifications, pottery and bronze jewelry are up to 3,500 years old.

The archaeological research at the site is being carried out in co-operation with Pezinok Museum, with findings being examined by various experts.
