Photographer's Note

When the ancient Egyptians built their magnificent temples like in Karnak there were settlements in Europe.

In prehistoric times Lake Ohrid was home to a settlement of pile dwellers who lived literally on top of the water, on a platform supported by up to 10,000 wooden piles anchored to the lake bed. The remains of the settlement were discovered at this spot and were gradually excavated by an underwater team between 1997 and 2005; the museum is an elaborate reconstruction of the settlement as archaeologists think it would have looked between 1200 and 600 BC.

The slightly theatrical name – Bay of Bones – is a nod to the many animal remains and fragmented vessels that have been found here.

It happens quite often that I visit an interesting place but later do not show any pictures. Paul reminded me today that I was there too. In my picture, the view from the side of the water.
The best way to go there is by boat (see Workshop). The views on the way are spectacular.
Another view in Workshop.
