Dear EUROPESCO friends, meet our proposal for The UNESCO Heritage List â€“ Karanovo Settlement Mound
It is located close to the village of Karanovo, west of Nova Zagora in Bulgaria. This is the largest and oldest settlement mound in the territory of Europe.
During the excavations spanned nearly 80 years the archeologists discovered seven archaeological layers, reflecting the stages of development of the material culture in Ancient Thrace. The Karanovo chronological system serves as a standard in the synchronization of the European pre-historical cultures.
The Seven layers prove that people lived here in the span of four millennia â€“ from the 6th millennium B.C. (early New Stone Age) to the 2nd millennium B.C. (early Bronze Age).
In 2009, a team of archeologists found in the Eastern Mound in Karanovo the tomb and the burial chamber of a wealthy Thracian nobleman . Among the finds are two silver chalices inscribed with the image of the god Eros, unique glass plates, coins, silver anklets, and gold rings.
A four-wheel warriorâ€™s chariot was also found, along with the remains of two horses and two dogs. The chariot wheels are exceptionally large, with a diameter of 1.20 meters

Valognes History Valognes city was buit close to an ancient Gallo-Roman colony called Alauna ou Alaunia and its name derives from it.. The Alleaume Gallo-Roman baths can still be visited. This city was destroyed during the Norman invasions and its inhabitants moved towards and along the Merderet River. It was a fortified stronghold under the Norman dukes and French monarchs. From the 15th century onwards, there has been an important religious congregation in Valognes (Capuchins and Cordeliers and Benedictine nuns). Edward III of England took Valognes without resistance and then pillaged and burnt the city. Henry III of England possessed the town, which remained under English rule for thirty years.
In 1649, the Count of Matignon besieged Valognes castle with his 8000 soldiers The castle was destroyed during Louis XIVth reign. During the 17th and the 18th centuries, the town became richer and the most important city in the Cotentin peninsula. It was inhabited by educated aristocrats who built their beautiful and stylish « hotels particuliers » there. Valognes was the residence of more than a hundred families of distinguished birth and fortune. That's why it was known as the Versailles of Normandy. Later, Cherbourg's influence and growth replaced Valognes's. Valognes suffered much during the Battle of Normandy, most particularly during the bombings of June 21 st, 1944. Saint Malo Church, built in the 14th century, and which used to have a French gothic dome dating from 1612, was partially destroyed during the conflict. More, out of the 50 aristocratic mansions, only 20 of them still remain, after some restauration.
