PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC—According to a report in the Prague Monitor, a research team led by archaeologist Tomas Chlup has found a 7,000-year-old well at the site of a large Linear Pottery culture settlement. The team has been working at the site, located in the country’s Central Bohemian Region, since 2006. So far, they have uncovered traces of 19 wooden longhouses that stood on pillars. “We have a rare opportunity to study the everyday life of the first farmers in our country,” Chlup said.
