At Adji Kui (Turkenistan-Central Asia) a similar discovery - burned walls and houses -
was find and, as those of Bulgaria, the burned wall allowed to determine the shape of
haouses. The datation at Adji Kui was settled at abt 4000 yrs BC.

For that, IMHO, it is not a surprise see that such tactis could have been used
millennia before in another place (in this case Bulgaria).

That way is the comunication road from Highlands to the Northern Aegean sea.
