Bulgaria: Archaelogists Discover Roman Kilns, Water Well in Bulgaria’s Pavlikeni

Four kilns and a water well from the Roman period have been discovered in the town of Pavlikeni, in northern Bulgaria.

The four ovens for baking pottery are just like the more than 50 furnaces in the ancient Roman ceramic factory located in a Roman military veteran’s villa outside the modern-day town in the 1970s, according to Bulgarian media reports.

The new discoveries, made in late May during rehabilitation works on the town’s water supply and sewerage system, suggest that the modern-day town lies on top of an ancient Roman town or villa estate dating back to the second half of the 2nd century AD, according to archaeologists.
