Roman-era settlement found in North-Eastern Bulgaria

Published on June 15th, 2009 | by Admin


A previously unknown Roman-era settlement has been found on Bulgaria’s northern Black Sea coast.

The earliest testament of a human presence at the site dates to the second and third centuries. The archaeologists’ discovery linked to this period is the stone flooring, which probably constituted part of the courtyard of a large building or Roman villa, which was destroyed around the middle of the third century by a Gothic invasion.

At about 20 centimetres over the flooring were discovered the foundations of another building, which probably dates to the end of the third and beginning of the fourth centuries, but which did not last for a long time.
