The geographical location, natural and climatic features were the reason why North-East Bulgaria non-uniformly colonized which resulted in a variety of manifestations of archaeological cultures in this comparatively small area (late 7th – 5th Millennium B.C.). For a long period of time it was considered to be unpopulated in the Neolithic due to the fact that the area was understudied. An early Neolithic settlement of Ovcharovo-gorata was discovered in the course of the scheduled exploratory works. The paper considers the results of comprehensive research of flint production inventory from this site. The authors conducted a comprehensive research which resulted in the characterization of the technical-morphological and functional features of the flint articles. They were compared with the materials of coexisting settlements in Bulgarian and the neighbouring regions, and the structure of the monument's utilization was identified and described in detail.
