Archeologists Find "Home of First Bulgarian Ruler"
The round-based construction, of around 30 m, is probably the oldest residence home of first Bulgarian rulers, around VII-VIII century. It is also the largest wooden edifice ever unearthed in the land where Bulgarian state emerged.
According to archeologists, the finding comes as a solid proof of the hypothesis that Old Bulgarians, predecessors of nowadays Bulgarian people, are unique in Europe with their construction based mainly on wood.
The predominantly round form of edifices - homes, temples, etc. - is symbolic for the practiced rites of worship to the Sun, the Sky and the Supreme God of Tangra.
In the beginning of this year, Bulgarian archeologists announced plans to launch excavation works in the roundabouts of Old Bulgarian capital Pliska in search for an ancient town or mausoleum considered to keep the remains of Bulgarian khans. The suggested royal necropolis is believed to reveal the burial sites of mighty Bulgarian khans Krum, Omurtag and their successors.
The excavations are financed by the National History Museum and supported by geologists from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
