Bulgarian archaeologists rescue Thracian treasure from highway construction


A real archaeological treasure has popped out underneath the «Struma» highway construction works in western Bulgaria.

Archaeologists at the site have managed a last-minute rescue operation, pulling gold soldier breastplates, gold earrings and hairpins, and a number of silver and amber items, the Bulgarian Standard daily writes on October 19.

The finds came from an unseen so far in size Thracian necropolis in the vicinity of the village of Dren, near the town of Radomir. The unique necropolis dates from 7-8th century BC. It includes an area of 5 825 square meters, and is over 300-meter long. Bulgarian archaeologists are quoted saying it has no analogue worldwide and it belonged to local Thracian aristocrats since they were the only ones allowed to wear gold.
