Tell site with Karanovo I and Copper Age (cf Karanovo V) layers, situated in the upland Vraca Basin in northwest Bulgaria. Large-scale excavations by B. Nikolov have revealed complete early Neolithic house-plans, succeeded in the Copper Age by a large village of three occupational phases with houses arranged in streets. Among the rich Copper Age ritual assemblage is a house model inscribed with signs and the so-called Grade§nica plaque — a fired clay disc covered in elaborate incised symbols.
