This reconstruction of tomb 550 has been made by Todor Dimov. The burial of a young man aged twenty or so dates back to the 5th millennium before Christ. The man was killed with a dull object causing a fatal injury in his right temple. He died in battle. It is in this tomb that the ritual antler axe was found.

If we agree he was slain in combat, then we can freely use our imagination to conceive the methods of waging war in the 5th millennium ... But it seems just enough to look in The Iliad.
