Archaeologists found the oldest necropolis discovered so far in Bulgaria. The discovery was made near the coastal town of Balchik.

The necropolis dates back to the time of Asparuh, the Bulgarian ruler from the second half of the 7th century, Sofia's archaeological museum representative Lyudmila Doncheva said. What makes the necropolis impressive are its large number and the variety of ceramic artifacts.

The ceramic artifacts and metal buckles found in the necropolis proved that it was built in the first decades after the Bulgarian state was established.

The necropolis contains both corpses were either buried others that were burned. In many cases people had buried animals together with the human bodies.

The location of the necropolis is on the territory of a military base near Balchik and that is why it remained unaffected by treasure-hunters.

Proto-Bulgaria necropolises were also found in Devnya, Topola, Hitovo, Novi Pazar.
