Authenticity of Ancient  Bulgarian Landmark Proved A border stone with engraved "Samuil autocrat of Bulgaria" stirred up anew discussions over medieval Bulgarian history. Macedonia claims the 11-century-ruling Samuil to be of Macedonian origin.

The authenticity of the recently discovered 11th century King Samuil landmark was proven.

Eminent Bulgarian scientists executed several tests that proved that the landmark was genuine. It was revealed that the signature that read "Samuil autocrat of Bulgaria" was not engraved at once.

More tests will be made to disclose the exact date of the archaeological find.

The victorious warrior Samuil who then became Bulgarian king was born in today's Macedonia. That gave reason for contentions that the Samuil state was Macedonian.

Some experts say that the new find will disprove all these claims.
