    I find it rather irritating that the ‘experts’ have to invent the use of the stream as
    “probably used by the locals to perform ritual offerings” – of course they used the stream – they needed it for washing and drinking and cooking didn’t they, why the ritual offerings idea for goodness sake ? – these were human beings and may have had no ideas such as those suggested here so unless you find things in the stream that suggests they were making offerings, it really means you are trying to invent a lifestyle FOR them – making you seem more ‘knowledgeable’ than you really are ? Please stick to the evidence.

About the author

Irina Slav

Irina Slav

Irina has a BA in English literature and linguistics from Sofia University and is definitely more partial to the former than the latter. She spent ten years working in the news industry, most of them specialising in business and finance. Convinced that there is much more to life than reporting on financial results and analysing the latest trends in mining or oil, she decided to start freelancing full time, writing on a host of fascinating topics, from gender equality to 3D printing. Although she did two years of Modern History in college, taking a special interest in the Middle East, she is much more interested in ancient civilizations, in how people used to live thousands of years ago, and how far we’ve gone since then. Or maybe not so far. When she’s not writing articles she indulges in her reading addiction, preferably against a music background, writes fantasy short stories, and does jigsaw puzzles with her four-year-old daughter.
