Neolith and Halcolith


The New Stone Age (Neolithic) is the last period of the Stone Age (spanning in the Bulgarian lands from 6000 to 4000 BC). It follows the Pleistocene and early years of the Holocene Mesolithic culture.


The Copper Age or “Chalcolithic”

The Stone-Copper Age covers approximately the period between 4000 and 3000 BC, with extensions in some parts of the world until later, and none in others. Most often, the Chalcolithic is considered an early stage of the Bronze Age, but some scholars consider it a separate period.
