Disastrous Bulgarian Flood Reveals Roman Building Remnants - Report
A floor surface from Roman times has been allegedly discovered in the river dike in the Bulgarian village of Biser that was recently destroyed by a disastrous flood.
The discovery is probably a part of a Roman public building or a shrine. It has been discovered by local museum workers after the flood has wiped away sand and dust from the river dike.
According to Todor Spiridonov, head of the Historical Museum in the nearby town of Haskovo, treasure-hunters have tried to study the discovery, as drill holes could be seen on the floor surface.
A cant column has also been discovered in the disaster-stricken village, according to haskovo.info.
The massive flood in the southeastern Bulgarian village took place on February 6 and claimed ten victims.
On February 9, the wall of an ancient building, most likely from Roman times, emerged in Sarafovo, near the Balck Sea city of Burgas.
The discovery happened in the vicinity of the vacation home of the Bulgarian army in Sarafovo, after the stormy sea dragged away part of the land around it.
