Traces of an ancient site unearthed during excavations carried out at a depth of 10 metres bear witness to human settlement as early as the Neolithic period, around 5500 BC. The size of the site exceeds all known Neolithic settlements in Europe. Utensils, weapons, jewellery and above all many stylised statuettes were discovered there. Around 4000 B.C., Vinča became an important religious, economic and cultural centre, which strongly influenced the agricultural techniques of the communities in Central and South-Eastern Europe. In 1908, a team of archaeologists led by Miloje Vasić carried out excavations that revealed important remains. Some of the thousands of years old clay figurines, typical and now called Vinca, are currently on display at the British Museum in London. At the time of the 2011 census, the municipality had a population of 6,779. Today, the city is also home to the Institute of Nuclear Sciences.
