Another Unique Thracian Tomb Discovered in Bulgaria


A unique tomb of an ancient Thracian ruler has been discovered by archeologists of the Popovo History Museum, museum director Plamen Sabev told yesterday. The mound ? 70-m-wide and 4.5-m-high -  is located near the village of Gagovo. According to historians, the mound is a part of a larger necropolis. The complex consists of two round chambers, a common anteroom and an additional chamber. The first two chambers are connected with a common entrance that closes with a massive stone folding-door. Each of the chambers has access to the anteroom. The tomb dates back to the 3rd century BC. Historians say that no other tomb in Bulgaria has such an architectural design.
