A Thracian tomb with semi cylinder arch was found by archaeologists in the territory of the south seaside Tserovo municipality. Tombs of this kind haven't been found to the moment in the Strandja Mountain, the chief of the excavations works Daniela Agre informed.
Undoubtedly the tomb is of a local dynasty ruler, who used to govern Southeastern Thrace and most probably controlled the production of ore.
The tomb was incredibly beautiful with white soft limestone, but unfortunately is half destroyed by the treasure - hunters.
Although part of the tomb has been preserved and there the archaeologists found amphoras, gray Thracian ceramics and a build grave of white limestone. The scientists date the Thracian tomb on round 370 - 360 year before Christ.
According to the excavation works' director, the found tomb is of the kind of the Thracian tomb in the Sborianovo area, which is under the UNESCO protection.
The tomb with semi cylinder arch could be recovered and to be adapted for tourist's visits. The finds will be exposed in museums.
Ummm...for those geographically challenged, this is where?
This is in Bulgaria.
Thanks...I just googled it.
Wikipedia educates the uninformed.
Thrace is a bit of a Greece/Bulgaria/Turkey nexus.
Wrong. This in central Greater Albania!
I don’t know exactly where it is, but I know that Miles Gloriosus raped Thrace thrice.
I think that the awesome thing here is the fact that these guys knew that Jesus Christ was going to be born 360 years later!
Thanks Blam. IMHO, this looks like a photo of a miniature.
