The archaeological findings in the area of Starosel evidence of ancient settlements before 7-8 millenniums. During the 5th century BC there was situated the ancient Thracian settlement with powerful tribal chiefs and wealthy local aristocracy. The settlement existed during the Second Bulgarian State. Residents of the village today (Ottoman Eni kyoy - Novo Selo) are descendants of the inhabitants of the village Starosel Trojan (today. Saev), who settled in the area during the 15th century.
In 1798 he built a religious school and a small church dug in the ground. In 1819, authorities in Constantinople give permission to build a new large church that existed until the April uprising. In Old New village just before the uprising lived about 2000 Bulgarians and dozens of Gypsies who were mostly blacksmiths and ironmongers. The village numbered 300 houses and was an important economic center in the region. River Sandstone 17 mills were located and 5 mills, and 13 gyulpani (rose distilleries) and many workshops cart for supplies and materials. There was also a market for cattle. Vasil Levski visited the village in 1869 and 1871 by establishing the revolutionary committee.
Later the village take part in the April Uprising and gives many victims - were all burned houses, church and school. Were all looted property and food stocks. Part of the population of Eni kyoy was killed, another part moved to North Bulgaria. The majority returned to their old settlement, but superstition rises again burned and devastated village and built a new 2-3 km downriver. They call their new village Eni kyoy Eski (Old Novo Selo - the old place a new village), which name remained until 1930 when it was renamed Starossel.
