Posted on 08/14/2012 5:06:24 PM PDT by SunkenCiv
Bulgarian archaeologists have discovered a Thracian settlement during the first ever excavations in the town of Tsarevo on the southern Black Sea coast.
The team is led by Milen Nikolov, an archaeologist from the Regional History Museum in the Black Sea city of Burgas.
The settlement is very close in location to the town church "Uspenie Bogorodichno." The find proves that Tsarevo and nearby areas have a history more ancient that what was believed until now.
During the excavations, the archaeologists have found remnants showing that as early as the 4th - 5th century BC Thracians have built a town that existed until the 1st century AC.
Nikolov explains the discovery is a 2,500-year history rewind, saying the finds further include a four-wick lamp, tomb gifts, and a number of vessels.

wow. that’s some serious excavating going on there.
There's an Indian town in this area that's been under excavation for the last 40 years. About 15 years ago 'they' announced that it had at least 20,000 people at the time Jamestown was founded, and had been producing ceramics for several thousand years.
Then, nothing since.
I'm sure they're still digging.
The Meds been actively excavated for a long time now and they continue to make exciting discoveries. Imagine all the sites still undiscovered. We really live in a world of lost knowledge.
I almost forgot the Thracian-settlement-on-the-Bulgarian-Coast alert.
Can I get on the Thracian-settlement-on-the-Bulgarian-Coast ping list?
They stopped it because it’s a bandwidth hog.
