At Lepenski Vir many Fish Goddesses artifacts and graves were found reveling in the aquatic lushness of the Danube river gorges. Perhaps, as a tribute to the huge water reservoir, the Fish Goddesses were important relics for burials and a part of the architectural structures consisting of temples not residences. The impressive fact is age of Lepenski Vir dated to the time of Mesolithic-Neolithic transition 6300-5950 BCE. According to the late Dr. Marija Gimbutas the shrines had the Fish Goddess and the Bird Goddess artifacts at the head of their altars. The oral memory traditions for memorals are associated with burial practices (6500-5500 BCE). Graves were nearby and rock cut tombs. The graves site was single, and found in threes. The hypogea in Malta also originated in the fifth millennia in the Aegean region.
