The unknown history of the oldest city
5 April 2006 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

15 years before I win the "Grand prize" for my computer animation movie, named "The Virgin Panhimnitos". Now I propose Pages from the Perpetual Chronicle of Plovdiv (in English translation). THE RISE OF PLOVDIV Here lies the secret of the biggest prehistoric settlement on all Thracian lands in Bulgaria. The initial Yassa-Tepe (Flat Hill) rose near the present-day railway station of Philipovo. This settlement had the longest continuous existence, but remains mostly unexplored to this day. It was partly examined by Prof. Peter Detev, an archaeologist, who found that its origins dated from the end of the seventh millennium BC. His research revealed that it had existed during all subsequent epochs up to the New Era, when the star of Roman Philippopolis rose for the world to see. One of the famous Thracian royal tombs was found in a tumulus near it. Petar Detev made a complete archaeological study in another Yassa-Tepe in the Lauta district. The settlement was founded during the late Neolithic period (ca. 5500 BC). A unique collection of hundreds of cult figurines of the Mother-Goddess was among the numerous finds shedding light on the prehistory of the city. Peter Detev's discoveries enabled him to restore a local Neolithic house. He found some amazing paraphernalia near a hearth. The scene, which we animated, is regarded by some as the earliest manifestation of the domestic cults in our lands. The ritual set includes this exquisitely modeled torso. It is most likely a Neolithic form of Our Lady, called by archaeologists the Great Mother-Goddess. The first settlement on Nebet-Tepe (Sentry Hill) came into being during the Aeneolithic period (ca. 4500 BC).
