In the early 1960s, a motorway was constructed near Skopje in the Municipality of Gazi Baba. Here, the most significant Neolithic site was discovered of the Skopje valley. Main excavations were executed by the Museum of Macedonia at the end of the 1970s and in the 1980s with beautiful pottery and other Neolithic artefacts coming to light.
In Macedonia and in Skopje in particular, there are just a few well known and appreciated archaeological sites. The Neolithic settlement Tumba Madzari is from its discovery appreciated by fellow archaeologists for the artistic and aesthetic values of its material and spiritual culture. Archaeologists of the Museum of Macedonia therefore, joined with the former mayor of Gazi Baba. Mr. Trajanovski, decided that the archaeological site should become publicly known. Mrs Kanzurova MA & Dr Zdravkovski are authors of the project.
