History

Bardhosh is positioned north of Prishtina, set on the left side of the road to Podujeva. The Neolithic site of Bardhosh was accidentally discovered in 2002, on the occasion of opening foundations in order to build a private house together with accompanying annexes. The immediate rescue excavations carried out at this location firmly confirmed remains and ruins of the Neolithic dwellings, houses with fire places, stone Hawn working tools, vessels and fragments of ceramic, etc. Furthermore, a quantity of qualitative anthropomorphic terracotta figurines discovered here, typical for the Vinca Culture but with the distinctive feature of Kosovar variant of so called ‘Pristina style’ were proved at this distinguished site.
