The missing link of the Thracians civilization's history has been found in Bulgaria's ancient sanctuary of Perperikon.

A team of archaeologists is to announce the phenomenal historical finding on Friday.

It concerns the transition from the late Bronze Age to the Iron one.

The researches of Perperikon highlight an almost unknown period from the time when the Thracian culture had developed and the time of the Trojan War.

The Thracians apparently did originate in the Baltic region, even if they prove to have nothing to do with the ethnogenesis of the Swedes.

The Thracian-Phrygian-Dacian group was considered by classical historians to be only less numerous than the Indians. It's not surprising that they played an important role in European history, a fact that hasn't been given adequate attention until relatively recently. The Thracians are only going to become more prominent in future revisions of history, and the Bulgarians ought to be vigorously staking their claim to Thracian heritage now.

Interesting. So Troy was founded by Thracians, the Swedes are Thracians, the Romanians (Dacians) are Thracians and some of the Bulgarians are also Thracians (you can recognize them by their hoarse voices, their wild faces, they have never had their hair or beard cut and their right hand is always ready to thrust the knife that they have fastened to their hip). Even on this forum there are Thracians too;)
