That's true, they probably would! 

Still not on there, a pity.

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.

Yet Another Thracian Tomb Unearthed in Bulgarian Village

17 September 2007, Monday

Bulgarian archaeologists unearthed an ancient Thracian tomb during the weekend while making urgent excavations near the village of Cherniche.

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.
