added by archaeologs A large settlement of the First Neolithic and Early Vinca periods of Macedonia near the Bregnalnica River. Excavations have revealed a four-phase occupation c 5300-4200 BC. There was cultivation of emmer and wheat as well as some herding. The architecture was mud brick walls to wattle-and-daub timber-framed houses. The artifacts are similar to those found in northern Greece and the Anatolian Late Neolithic.
added by archaeologs [Anzabegovo]. A large open settlement of the Macedonian First Neolithic and Early VinCa periods situated on the first terrace of the Bregalnica River in the Ovce Polje basin of eastern Yugoslav Macedonia. Intensive excavations by Korosec, Garasanin and Gimbutas have revealed a four-phase occupation dated c5300-4200 bc. Each successive village cultivated emmer and bread wheat and relied upon caprine herding. Architectural styles were modified from initial use of mudbrick walls to wattle-and-daub timber-framed houses, presumably an adaptation to the temperate climate. Artefactual similarities are found in northern Greece (Nea Niko-medeia), as well as the Anatolian Late Neolithic (Hacilar VI); a life-size fired clay pig was found in the early Neolithic levels.
