Archaeologists discover a Thracian tomb from the time of the Odrysian kingdom
A Thracian tomb from the time of the Odrysian kingdom was discovered by archaeologists near the village of Teketo, Haskovo region, southern Bulgaria.
The researchers uncovered wall paintings destroyed by treasure hunters.
Despite the damages, the condition of the tomb surprised the archaeologists.
However, it will provide valuable information for science and open a new chapter in the history of the Odrysians.
"It is curious to show you a situation that puzzles us too. Here we see fragments of protective clothing, under this block. This is a chasuble that is constructed of small plates that are sewn to a leather or cloth garment. We see 7-8 of them here," said Assoc. Prof. Georgi Nehrizov, head of the archaeological excavations.
BNT: What is this ptotective clothing doing between the two stones?
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Georgi Nehrizov: "That's what we're trying to find out, it's not clear to us yet."
You can see how it was left after the devastating raids of the treasure hunters.
