Not far from Truskavets (Lviv region), researchers found the remains of a Parking lot that is older than the settlements of the Trypillian culture. Historians claim that the age of the unique finds exceeds 7 thousand years. It is likely that representatives of the linear-band ceramics culture lived here. The traces of ancient people came across by chance during the construction of a bypass road past Truskavets.

The excavation has been going on for more than two weeks. During this time, several items and ruins of buildings were discovered. The size of the largest structure was 23x8 m. The rectangular structure is typical of the culture mentioned above. Judging by the construction, the settlement site was a temporary Parking lot, where several dozen people lived. There are not many such sites in the territory of the Carpathian region.

Among the artifacts, archaeologists have identified obsidian flakes - fragments of stones chipped by ancient people. It is possible that obsidian fragments came here from the regions where Hungary and Slovakia are now located. Sickles, blanks of knives, pieces of dishes were also found.

The culture of linear-band ceramics covered a significant part of Central Europe in 5-4 thousand BC. This name was given because of the images of spiral patterns on the thin walls of ceramics. Representatives of the culture were engaged in farming, growing crops, hunting wild boars and deer, and raising cattle.
