Bulgarian Archaeologists Find 130 Ancient Sites along Nabucco Route
Bulgarian archaeologists surveying the route of the future Nabucco gas transit pipeline have uncovered about 130 archaeological sites, Bulgaria's National Archaeological Institute has announced.
The surveying of the 420 km Bulgarian section of Nabucco has been carried out under a special GIS (Geographical Information System) technology, announced Monday the Institute Director Prof. Lyudmil Vagalinski on the occasion of the fifth annual exhibition "Bulgarian Archaeology" 2011.
He said that based on the data collected by the archaeologists, there will be excavations along the route of the Nabucco pipeline. He did stress, however, that the archaeologists have no way of influencing the investor's decisions other than by indicating their findings.
After certain delays, the EU-sponsored Nabucco gas transit pipeline is expected to be completed in 2017, and its construction is supposed to start 2-3 years earlier.
