History

The identified Neolithic site of Varosh is situated in the municipality of Ferizaj, respectively, located only 2 km south, southeast from the city, on the flat terrain of the Varosh village. Even though this Neolithic settlement was not archaeologically excavated, nor was investigated through the trial trenches, in several cases, occasional traces and remains of different Neolithic ceramic fragments were recorded, which happened during the work on the fields. The majority of the revealed movable archaeological materials clearly indicate traces of a nucleated Neolithic settlement of Starcevo and Vinca cultures. During 2011, in some parcels of this archaeological site, geophysical recordings, respectively, magnetometer survey were carried out, resulting with reflection of several underneath structures that might indicate the remains of Neolithic houses/dwellings.
