History Tidbids

Archeological excavations revealed remains of a stronghold probably founded by the members of Knoviz culture thriving in late Bronze age. Many Bronze artifacts were found here in the early modern age but most of the got lost. Bronze things were regularly given to children or blacksmiths bought them and added to iron. The stronghold was situated in considerably high altitude in midst of wild forest. However, there is significant probability that it was not permanently settled. Rather it was a temple or a place of worship or place where bronze craftsmen met.
