Rudna Glava


Rudna Glava

Rudna Glava (Ore Head) is a mining site in present-day eastern Serbia that demonstrates early (and perhaps the earliest) evidence of European copper mining and metallurgy, dating to the 5th millennium BC. Shafts were cut into the hillside, with scaffolding constructed for easy access to the veins of ore. It belongs to the Vinča culture, as is shown by pottery-finds.

Another early mine is located at Ai Bunar in Bulgaria.
