On June 16, 2023, the exhibition "Prehistoric Monuments from the Pomorie Region" was opened in the Pomorie Historical Museum. The exhibition includes newly discovered materials from landmark sites in the area - the "Hidden Mound" near the village of Poroy and the "Goat Mound" near the village of Kableshkovo.

The highlight of the exhibition is the settlement mound near the village of Poroy under the scientific guidance of Dr. Margarita Popova, head of the "History of the Bulgarian Lands in Antiquity (Prehistory - Late Antiquity)" department at the National History Museum and Stanimir Parvanov (ROME-Varna) with a team from ROME-Sofia. Excavations at the site, which began in 2018 with the support of the Ministry of Culture, developed around one of the many mining excavations violating the integrity of the mound.

The settlement mound in the town of "Hidden mound", Poroy village, commune. Pomorie is one of the few prehistoric sites from the Black Sea part of Thrace that have been studied through regular excavations. The object presents the culture of the late Stone-Copper Age - (XNUMXth millennium BC, Kodjedermen-Gumelnitsa-Karanovo VI culture). This was a dynamic period during which copper metallurgy based on ore mining developed for the first time in the world in Thrace and the Lower Danube region. These processes lead to the development of trade and specialization in production.

The "Hidden Mound" settlement mound was formed over a long period of time, as different settlements were built in the same place. Fires were a frequent occurrence at that time and periodically destroyed every settlement. For this reason, it had to be rebuilt. Thus, for hundreds of years, the settlement mound was formed - a hill with many layers, filled with remains of prehistoric dwellings and various objects.

Visitors to IM-Pomorie can see some of the most attractive finds from the Poroy Mound. Among them are a "zoomorphic" clay vessel in the shape of a small wild pig, a string of over 400 pcs. beads, probably made of turtle bones, and pottery with rich geometric incised and painted decoration.
At the opening, greetings on behalf of the director of the National History Museum, Prof. Dr. Boni Petrunova, were presented by Prof. Ivan Hristov, deputy director of the museum. A contract for cooperation in the field of museum work and field research between the National History Museum and Pomorie Historical Museum is about to be signed.

The exhibition was part of the "Night at the Museum" event organized by the Municipality of Pomorie and can be seen until
October 2023
