Medieval Gold Jewellery Found in Thracian Mound in Bulgaria
The artifacts were discovered in the tombs of three women by one of Bulgaria's best-known archaeologists, Professor Georgi Kitov.
"In 13th-14th century BC there was a medieval settlement near the mound," professor Kitov explained.
The finds will be preserved in the museum of history in the nearby town of Sliven.
After the unearthing of the first layer in the place, the excavation works will continue. There are to be performed such in a total of 12 Thracian mounds in the region during this summer.

He's a treasure hunter, not an archeologist. If he cared anything about the preservation of ancient history he'd stop opening tombs for the thieves to rob and leave excavation until such time as the Bulgarian state was able to finance a properly scientific exploration and then preserve the site afterwards.
