The “Oldest Gold Of Mankind” was found in the Varna Necropolis, on The Bulgarian Black Sea Coast.
The Varna Necropolis (also known as Varna Cemetery) is a large burial site in the western industrial zone of Varna. It is internationally considered to be one of the key archaeological sites in world prehistory.
It was at this site that the oldest worked gold treasure in the world was discovered, dating from 4,600 BC to 4,200 BC.
A total of 294 graves dating between 4569-4340 BC have been discovered at Varna Necropolis so far, including three thousand gold artefacts.
While there were many elite burials uncovered, there was one in particular that stood out among the rest – grave 43. Here, archaeologists uncovered the remains of a high status male who appears to have been a ruler/leader of some kind.
More gold was found within this burial than in the entire rest of the world in that period.
