Yet Another Thracian Tomb Unearthed in Bulgarian Village
The team of Georgi Nehrizov, a specialist in Thracian history and culture with the Bulgarian Archaeology Institute, stumbled absolutely accidentally on the tomb.
The sepulchre is dated back to the 4-3 century BC. The burial chamber with two-slope surface of the walls is completely intact. It is 2 metres long, 1,8 metres wide and 2 metres high.
The antechamber was destroyed by treasure hunters, which had obviously tried to penetrate the tomb with a digger.
Specialists from the Archaeology Institute have already arrived on the spot to make further research and discuss how to best preserve the finding.
