Much of the grounds of the Bulgarian archaeological reserve "Sboryanovo" near the town of Isperih and the village of Sveshtari have become a field planted with alfalfa.

Although it is State property, an unknown farmer is using the historical site for personal profit, alarms bTV.

Just last year a unique Thracian gold treasure was discovered there, and less than a month ago, Bulgarian archaeologists found a unique chariot.

Archaeologists say that if cultivation of the land becomes regulated, the profits from the production must be used to fund their research, as financing is currently insufficient.

The discovery, 31 years ago, of the Thracian Sveshtari tomb is seen as an archaeological sensation and the site is included in the world cultural-historical heritage of UNESCO.
