A team of archeologists have unearthed a new Thracian tomb close to the southern town of Kazanlak, Bulgaria.

The tomb is in close proximity to the village of Dolno Izvorovo. It is situated a few meters under a tumulus that is a cultural monument. It is located deep under the earth in the periphery of the tumulus. Archeologists say the tomb was destroyed in antiquity.

In November 2008 the tumulus was attacked by treasure hunters and after that archeologist Georgi Nihrizov started rescue excavations.

In November the police were alerted that unidentified persons were excavating the tumulus. Four people were detained then. Three of them have criminal records.
