Ancient settlement at the Big Island
The Big Island in the Durankulak lake, which the archaeologists call "The Dobrudja Troy ", has been inhabited continuously from the middle of the 6th millennium BC till the end of the Fist Bulgarian Kingdom (1018 AD).
The cultural layer of the tell site is 3,5 m thick. Here, in the eight settlements accumulated one above the other and dating from the Neolithic and Eneolithic periods (5 500 - 4 100 BC), the remains of the oldest stone architecture in continental Europe were discovered. On the west bank of the lake other archaeological sites closely connected with the inhabitants of the island were also found.
