Ancient tablets found in Bulgaria
Bulgarian archaeologists unearthed tablets over 35-centuries old, bearing the ancient script of the Cretan (Minoan) civilization. Scientists from the University of Heidelberg examined the findings. The script is also known as Linear A script which dates back to XV-XIV century BCE.
Nikolay Ovcharov, who is heading the archaeological expedition in the ancient Perperikon complex near Kardzhali, called the discovery "revolutionary".
