Archaeological Research for Allegedly the Oldest Necropolis in the Balkans will not Start this Year
Archaeological excavations near the village of Topola, allegedly the oldest necropolis in the Balkans, will not start this year, Kavarna Mayor Nina Stavreva told Focus Radio. She explained that at present the municipality was focused on two other historical sites – the Kaliakra Archaeological Reserve and the Prehistoric, Antiquity and Medieval Settlement in the Chirakman area. “The findings last year shed light on an understudied period of the settlement’s history. After all, there is the old town of Bizone, and we have directed funding for archaeology to these two sites,” the mayor said. The site at Topola will also be explored in the near future, being yet another tourist attraction, she said.
