Exhibited are materials from the early Eneolithic
Age acquired as a result of investigations during the last 30-40
years. Typical for the Varna region is the small quantity
of villages from the period of the New Stone Age /The Neolithic/
- 7th –6th Millennium BC.
work carried out till present points to the fact that life
around Varna and the lakes strongly activated only in the
period of the Stone – Copper age. This becomes obvious mainly
from the findings from the studied early Eneolithic villages
by the town of Souvorovo /about 30 km to the Northwest
of Varna/ and by the villages of Sava and Goljamo Delchevo
/now under the waters of the Tsonevo dam lake/.
Various in form ceramic vessels decorated
with engraved lines and encrusted geometric figures or with rich
graphite ornamentation make evident the artistry of the ancient
potters. Patterns of idol plastics – all kinds of human and animal
figures - testify to the development of religious notions and beliefs
of the prehistoric man.
In a big showcase next to the entrance of
the hall are exhibited the finds from graves excavated in the Western
part of Varna – various ceramic vessels with engraved geometric
ornamentation, fine stone and bone tools, decorations made of shells
of Mediterranean mollusks.
