macedonia: Iron period layers revealed by latest archaeology excavations at kokino



29 May 2009 | The latest archaeological research at the ancient observatory of Kokino in north-eastern Macedonia revealed layers from the Iron Period, around the seventh century BC, Minister of Culture Elizabeta Kancheska-Milevska declared today.

“At the moment, there is intensive archaeological research on several sectors of the site,” the minister explained during a Parliament session dedicated to questions of members of parliament, quoted by national media. She added that this work should be completed by the end of June.

The megalith observatory of Kokino is one of the priorities of the Ministry of Culture’s 2009 programme, Kanchevska-Milevska explained. The Ministry, along with the Cultural Heritage Protection Office, developed a plan for management of the site, which determines projects for the protection of Kokino as a site of cultural-historic significance and its nomination to be included on UNESCO’s World Heritage list.

According to the Minister, Kokino has entered the first stage of the UNESCO accreditation list, “which is of enormous significance for the site and the area’s economic development.”

The Kokino archaeological site, which Macedonia aims to have included on the UNESCO’s World Heritage list, is located about 30 kilometres from the town of Kumanovo in north-eastern Macedonia. The megalithic observatory discovered there in 2001 was determined to be around 3,800 years old. The oldest archaeological finds from the site date from the Early Bronze Age, but many objects from the Middle Bronze Age were also excavated, including ceramic vessels, stone-mills and moulds.

Stone markers used to track the movement of Sun and Moon were also discovered at the site.

The Kokino megalithic observatory was recognized by the United States Space Agency (NASA) as a significant heritage site of this type in its "Timeless knowledge" project in 2005. It listed Kokino side by side with ancient observatories as Stonehenge in Great Britain, Abu Simbel in Egypt and Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

Претседателот Иванов меѓународно ќе го промовира локалитетот Таор

Родното место на Јустинијан Први, еден од најголемите византиски императори, ќе стане светска туристичка атракција, најави претседателот


Претседателот Ѓорге Иванов вчера на италијанскиот амбасадор во земјава Донатино Маркон му го претстави археолошкиот локалитет Таор, каде што се пронајдени докази дека познатиот византиски император Јустинијан Први бил роден во Скопско. Иванов најави дека на локалитетот ќе биде изграден и амфитеатар и најави меѓународна промоција на овој локалитет.

- Ова е родното место на византискиот император. Ова претставува можност за меѓународна промоција на Македонија. И она што во иднина би било туристичка атракција. Многумина би сакале да дојдат и да го видат местото од каде што е човекот по чие име е крстено и правото, односно по Јустинијан. За тоа зборувавме и додека бев на Правниот факултет, односно сите студенти би доаѓале тука да го видат местото од каде што потекнува креаторот на правото, кое денеска се вика римско право - изјави Иванов.

Донатино Маркон, амбасадорот на Италија, рече дека бил заинтересиран за историјата на Јустинијан и за Стариот Рим.

- Очекувам дека ќе соработуваме со претседателот Иванов. За оваа цел нашата влада донира 3 милиони евра за обнова на археолошките локалитети Стоби, Скупи и Хераклеја. Очекувам реставрација и подобрување и на овој локалитет - рече Маркон.

Киро Ристов, археолог од Музејот на градот Скопје, објасни дека станува збор за големо откритие како потврда дека Македонија е држава што има богата историја чии корења потекнуваат уште од античкиот период.

- Тука се откриени многу пронајдоци што укажуваат дека на овој локалитет постоел античкиот град Тауресиум, родното место на Јустинијан Први. Откриен е и жиг, монограм од Јустинијан Први, кој е единствен во светот и кој има непроценлива вредност - вели Ристов.

Тој објасни дека од оваа година локалитетот Таор влезе во капиталните проекти на Владата и дека истражувањата ќе продолжат сé додека има материјал. Просторот и пронајдените градби и предмети ќе бидат конзервирани, а потоа ова фантастично откритие ќе биде претставено и пред пошироката меѓународна јавност.

Archaeologists Announce Conclusion of Kastel Site Excavations

22 June 2009 | With the successful conclusion of the second archaeological excavation campaign of the Kastel site Skopje, archaeologists announced several important findings.
Good results were discovered at four main points of the site, located 26 kilometres southeast of the capital near the Pcinja River, Kiril Traykovski, who led the Museum of Macedonia archaeological team, told Utrinksi Vesnik today.

They were: “at the actual summit of the fortress, at the middle part of the remains of the discovered church, in the cave – monastic cell (which was previously thought to be a natural phenomenon) and in the commercial and residential areas of one of the castle’s sides.

The results so far suggest that it is highly possible that in the remains of the church was located a monastery, which was recorded in the imperial documents, now kept in the Russian St. Panteleymon Monastery on Mount Athos.

According to a document from the fourteenth century, the Metropolitan Jacob of Serres received the monastery and its surrounding territory as an imperial gift. Archaeologists think that he most likely spent his last years in the monastic cell.

The experts explained the origins and importance of the Kastel Fortress to the publication: “At around 3,500 BC, the nameless inhabitants of this minor settlement were forced to erect fortification walls in order to protect themselves from conquerors from the north. Whether those farmers and goat breeders from nearby the Pcinja belonged to the Brigit tribes or were similar to them culturally has not been recorded. As one of the northwest and border settlements towards Dardania, the Paeonic settlement near the Pcinja certainly depended administratively on the urban centre of Bilazora, built 20 kilometres to the east of Kastel.”

Little is known about the period from fourth to second centuries BC and the Roman period up to the fourth century AD, the experts added.

As a fortress, the settlement had strategic importance between the sixth and the seventh centuries because of the control over the ancient mediaeval road between Thessalonica (Thessaloniki) and Skupi (Skopje).

According to the publication, it is believed that Christian inhabitants erected a church building in the fortress, towards the west area overlooking the cliffs where they prayed until the first decades of the seventh century when the fortress was conquered by Barbarian tribes from the north. Reconstruction of the Byzantine Empire in the eleventh century restored the fortress’s importance and its active life is thought to have been uninterrupted until the area became part of the Ottoman Empire in the fourteenth century. Remains of a church with fresco painting fragments belonging to the twelfth to thirteenth centuries have been unearthed in the utmost western part of the area.

Ancient tombs with peculiar gold mask discovered in Macedonia

Skopje - Macedonian archaeologists have discovered 17 tombs dating from the 5th century BC in Ohrid, southwestern Macedonia, local media reported Monday. In one tomb, archaeologists found bones of a 15-year-old girl with a unique funeral mask made up of thin gold eye-covers, gold plate for the mouth and a plaque with an engraved sun placed on her chest.

"This kind of a mask is unique for the Balkans. Several gold plates were found in Aegean region, but this kind of combination in one grave is unknown," Pasko Kuzman, head of the Macedonian Department for Cultural Heritage, was quoted as saying.

Jewelry, golden chains and objects made from amber were also found in the graves. Amber was brought to the region from the Baltic, indicating strong trade relations with northern European.

Archaeologists will continue with explorations of the site until autumn, and by the end of the year an exhibition with the findings from the sites will be organized.

Strong trade relations between Macedonia and northern Europe in the 5th century BC? That is interesting.

It does indeed. The link with the enclitic definite article between the 2 regions is also interesting.
