Neolithic Fashionplates

This report on excavations at a 7,500 year-old neolithic/chalcolithic site in southern Serbia doesn't tell us lots of new information about that period in Europe. The article says this site may push back the initial date of the Copper Age by 500 years but doesn't really give you enough information to assess the claim.

However, a study of women's dress from analysis of clay figurines like the one above, turns up some fun insights:

"According to the figurines we found, young women were beautifully dressed, like today's girls in short tops and mini skirts, and wore bracelets around their arms," said archaeologist Julka Kuzmanovic-Cvetkovic."

Really asshole? You know this for a fact?! It is found in Southern Serbia so get your facts right. If you bothered to read the articles you would have realised they are two totally different articles but like your comment it proves the obvious that you are a idiot!
