LATE BRONZE HOME UNEARTHED
A structure has been unearthed at the Section 7 of the Skopje Fortress (Kale) during excavations of the fortress. The structure is unique because no such structure or item belonging to the Late Bronze Age has been found so far at the place. Importantly, the object has been unearthed on the whole.
“In all this chaos, after three weeks of exploration, contours of a structure made in stone started appearing. It is interesting that it was restored for a few times in the past. This is seen by the control profile of a probe dug in 1953 by Petra Gockova. The probe cuts our structure in two halves. A few holes left from great massive beams that supported the roof have been unearthed as have a few smaller holes, and an oven for bread, which was restored at least twice. The inventory in the home was usual for the Late Bronze Age, in the period around 1100 B.C., archaeologist Dragisa Zdravkovski says.
He explains that ceramic dishes, small pearls of green glass pasta have also been discovered in the vicinity of the home.
“It is known within the Mediterranean archaeology that following the Trojan War a massive Aegean movement occurred when many tribes from Central Europe, Russian stepa moved to the south, even from Egypt, destroying everything in front of them. We assume that, practically, our structure might have experienced that destruction,” Zdravkovski explains.
Archaeologists found another layer of burning under the structure, which they relate to another world disaster in 1550 BC when a volcano eruption on Santorini near Crete burst out.
