They find a Punic place of worship in Valencia

Thanks to the findings found in a plot of the Ruaya street in Valencia, it is known of the existence of a cult area belonging to the Punic epoch dating from the 3rd to 4th centuries BC., in which there are skeletal remains of animals, small altars and a figure that could represent an idol, according to Europa Press.

This is how he explained it Albert Ribera, head of the Archeology section of the Historical Heritage service, during a press conference on the occasion of the opening of the exhibition under the name of “Valencia before Valentia. From Prehistory to the Carthaginians. Archaeological Finds of Ruaya Street”.

Archaeologists are studying the skeletal remains of animals which are thought to have been offered in sacrifice. In addition to the pieces named above, the oldest utensil found in the metropolis is shown, a retoucher that is located between the years 10,000 and 7,000 BC. In this way, offering a preview of the exhibition that will keep the most curious alert and with the aim of providing knowledge about the amazing origin of the city of Valencia.

The discoveries have revealed that both human activity and agriculture were developed in this city long before its founding, attributed to the Romans in 138 BC.

I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
