5,000-year-old plough furrows found in Czech Republic

Published on January 18th, 2012 | by Admin


Archaeologists working in the Czech Republic have uncovered plough furrows which date back over 5,000 years.

Probably the most important find is the system of four approximately parallel lines that are nine metres long, ten metres wide and eight centimeters deep, which archeologists say, are furrows.

Experts believe the furrows date back to the earlier phase of Copper Age, i.e. between 3800 and 3500 B.C.

The oldest evidence on the use of primitive ploughs in Europe also coincide with this period.
