Ancient sanctuary found in Bulgaria
An ancient sanctuary dated back to the Neolithic was discovered near the southern Bulgarian village of Kapitan Dimitrievo. A team of archeologists headed by professor Vassil Nikolov found the site in a mound located at a depth of 1,8 meters; according to the experts it was used for rituals connected with harvesting.
Vassil Nikolov explained that the sanctuary is unique for Southeastern Europe. The sanctuary is located in the Banyata mound that has been explored over the last two years. The other findings will be included in the major exhibition of 3,000 Thracian pieces from Bulgaria that will be held in Germany.
