Prehistoric and Protohistoric Pit Complex

village of Kapitan Andreevo, Hauza locality in Haskovo, Bulgaria
This complex dating back to the period 5,200-4,800 BC is unseen anywhere else in South-East Europe and provides an important contribution to the knowledge of the first European civilization which thrived in present-day Bulgarian lands.
The second stage in the use of the studied area is the Middle Bronze Age - around 1800-1700 BC. Several ritual pits have been discovered, which are a rarity in Bulgarian lands. The third stage of using the area dates to the early and late Iron Age - 1st millenium BC. Archaeologists have studied dozens of Thracian ritual pits, some of which of a very large size. Chronologically, last on the list are two medieval dug-outs and at least three ritual pits for human sacrificial rites from the 8th-9th century.
