STONE AGE BOATS IN PRESPA
Three wooden boats were found on the shores of lake Prespa near the village of Nakolec, Resen decades ago. The boats are more than 4000 years old and they belonged to the Prespa inhabitants of the Stone Age.
All that time the boats have been lying unnoticed in the hall of the "Dom na kultura" in Resen untill two years ago some locals gave donations for the conservation of the boats dating from the Neolithic Period, and now the three can be seen in Resen free of charge.
“In my 28 years as a professional, I have never heard of the boats", says Dimitar Mucevski, an archeologist from Resen. “I know of foreign archeologists discovering such wooden boats in the pharaohs tombs, but I did not know there were such treasures here in Macedonia. These boats are made out of a single tree trunk”.
MD: Very interesting, soon we'll also post up an article about the unique village of Nakolec.
