Description:

Prehistoric Snake Rock Shrine found in Bulgaria in 2016. According to Prof. Ana Raduncheva and Assoc. Prof. Stefanka Ivanova from the National Institue and Museum of Archeology in Sofia, another Rockshrine (“Eagle’ s Rocks” Shrine) was the work of a prehistoric Civilization which created an entire system of shrines in Bulgaria spanning what was a huge holy territory. The “Eagle’ s Rocks”-Shrine which is located in the same Region features huge Human Faces hewn high into the rocks, and dates back to the 4th millennium BC. It’ s plausible to assume that the Snake-Rock-Shrine was build around the same Time. But only further analysis of the Site will give more clear answers.
