A new housing estate is planned for the locality of Vysielač in the village of Veľké Kostoľany near Piešťany. However, its citizens are not the first to chose this location as home.
Ongoing, long-term archaeological research has provided much evidence of the first farmers of the Neolithic period, more than 7,000 years ago.
But the extent and richness of the findings at this settlement make it one of the biggest discovered in the Trnava region in recent times.
Archaeologists have been digging there for four years and their aim is to research the whole area meant for construction, said Peter Grznár, archaeologist of Regional Monument Board in Trnava.
