New-found unique golden treasure exhibited in the National History Museum

A new-found golden treasure from the Bronze Age will be presented tomorrow at 11:00a.m. at the National Historical Museum in the presence of the Culture Minister Professor Stefan Danailov.

During the period June – October a team under the leadership of Dr. Borislav Borislavov (University of Sofia ‘Kliment Ohridski’) and Nadezhda Ivanova excavated a famous hill in the village of Izvorovo, Harmanly Municipality.

The excavations were financed through the National Historical Museum from the Ministry of Culture, while the sum of 22 000 leva was granted from the reserves of the Ministry of Culture, personally by Stefan Danailov.

The discovery is unique not only for Bulgaria and will help throw light on one of the less known periods of history of Bulgarian lands and the European continent.

    I adore archaeology, congratulations on such a fantastic find!

    There must be so much undiscovered here in beautiful Bulgaria and it would be of great help if someone would let us all know what are the regulations if an ancient relic is uncovered and perhaps the regulation of using a metal detector here in Bulgaria too.

    One of my oldest ambitions is to go on an archaeological dig
