Archaeologists found a golden grave near Sliven

“A golden grave, dating back to the 2nd century BC, was found by the TEMP expedition lead by Diana Dimitrova”, said Georgi Kiupchukov – director of the history museum in Sliven.

According to him, the valuable artifacts found in Popova mogila near the village Topolchane are: a chest, decorated with ebony and intricate metal works; golden adornments; a massive golden ring with a black stone; metal and ceramic utensils.

Another interesting artifact, according to Kiupchukov, are the very well kept leather shoes. The pair are adorned with golden strings.

Georgi Kiupchukov said that the digging near Popova mogila will continue.
