The site of modern Skopje has been inhabited since at least 4000 BC. Also, remains of Neolithic settlements have been found within the old Kale fortress that overlooks the modern city center. The settlement appears to have been founded around then by the Paionians (Paeonians), a people that inhabited the region.
In the 3rd century BC, Skopje and the surrounding area was invaded by the Dardani.
Scupi, the ancient Skopje, came under Roman rule in 148 BC, being at first part of the Roman province of Macedonia, established in 146 BC.
