Lepenski Vir Serbia

Posted by [email protected] on November 11, 2016 at 7:55 AM

Lepenski Vir in Serbia is a Mesolihtic site that dates back to 9500/7200-6000 BC. Although there is some disagreement about the early start of the settlement and culture of Lepenski,  the latest data suggest 9500-7200 to be the start.

The late Lepenski Vir (6300-6000 BC) architectural development was the development of the Trapezoidal buildings and monumental sculpture. The Lepenskir Vir site consists of one large settlement with around ten satellite villages. Numerous piscine sculptures have been found at the site.

This led the brilliant Marija Gimbutus to suggest the Fish represented the Goddess. The figurines are beautiful and show that this age old and lost culture was fully artisitic and highly creative.

Remind yourself that this European culture is 6000 years before the pryramids.
