Findings presenting the dreadful world of armed conflict
Among the wide variety of items that show the ingenuity of the inhabitants of Provadia-Solnitsata, there is one category that represents the terrifying world of armed conflict. The rich collection of over 500 bone and flint arrows, flinty spearheads, stone and flint axes, testify for the bloodsheds that were caused by the region's most significant natural feature - the salt springs and the stone salt that was made and stored behind the stone walls. The attacks of the hostile intruders, seeking to seize the salt and respectively - the defense of the settlement, produced many human remains found between the stones of the destroyed ancient defense facilities. It is not clear if any of the attacks or sieges were successful, but certainly overcoming the stone walls was a great achievement for the attackers.
