SOFIA, BULGARIA—Archaeology in Bulgaria reports that the 7,600-year-old skeleton of a woman has been discovered in the fetal position next to the remains of a house in the Slatina Neolithic Settlement, on the banks of the Slatinska River in western Bulgaria. Archaeologists led by Vasil Nikolov of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences suspect a child buried nearby is likely to have been hers. A bone spoon, pottery, and parts of tables thought to have been used for ritual sacrifices were also recovered. To read about another discovery in Bulgaria, go to “Thracian Treasure Chest.”
