History

The Neolithic site of Barileva, is situated at the village with the same name, stretched at the fertile fields known locally as the ‚Arat Kovaçe’ (English; Kovace fields). The first signs of archaeological value of this archaeological site were recorded in the 60’s, with accidental discovery of a particular terracotta figurine, typical for the Vinca Culture. Interestingly, this Neolithic settlement is situated near the river flow of the Llap River; this clearly reflects the fact that usually, Neolithic dwellings were set in fertile lands nearby or close to the river shores. In regard, during the 2011, geophysical survey (magnetometer prospection) conducted at large part of this area, resulted with confirmation of vast archaeological potential of this spread Neolithic settlement.
