Bulgarian archaeologists have found what has been described as a "wealthy" 8000-year-old town close to the Danube city of Ruse.
The town, which flourished between 5 800 BC and 5 500 BC had well-organized streets and even two-storey houses with oak floors.
"The ceramics that we found here is of a very high-quality, and with no analogy compared to other settlements from this age. People of this period had taste, and we can say they had an aristocratic style," explained archaeologist Dr. Svetlana Venelinova from the Regional History Museum in the city of Shumen.
