Replica of the sacrificial hole was uncovered in the village of Nižná Myšľa in eastern Slovakia, one of the most significant archaeological localities of European significance. Learn what you should not miss when visiting the Košice region.
The project is part of the exhibition that should show visitors the life and rituals of people from the Bronze Age.
In 1993, a two and half metre-deep sacrificial hole was uncovered. It was hiding the skeletons of four women, divided from each other only with a layer of soil together with the bigger section of a boiled child skull.
“It is interesting that every murdered woman was covered with soil and parts of sacrificed animals and ceramic vessels, bronze ring, clay weight from weaving loom and ceramic circles and stones,” said Ján Melich from the Collegium Myssle civic association, which is behind the project, as quoted by the SITA newswire.
