    Reliably dated to be about 7000 years old, a fortified town near modern day provadia is now being excavated.
    Probably, their wealth derived from deriving salt from brine, and a major gold haul found near Varna 40 years ago might well be connected with this old place..

    It makes you wonder how they crafted the kiln for the brine - then figured out hoe to cast bricks. Good find.
