Bay Of Bones

Ohrid, Macedonia

Prehistoric settlement on the water. Restored houses 5 meters from the bottom of the sunny waters of Lake Ohrid. This is only a small part of what existed here around 1200 BC. In ancient times, this settlement had 60 houses and was connected to the shore by the use of a movable bridge. A site where the underwater archaeological explorations brought out stone tools, ceramics and bones of animals and deer horns. Settlement reconstructed in 2008, wooden houses above the level of water, and museum with the salvaged artifacts. A place where, during the warm summer evenings, theatrical performances are held and the spirits of the ancient past are brought back.
