Archaeologists are resuming the excavation of a Thracian temple complex near the village of Starosel in Southern Bulgaria.

The 2500-year-old site – the temple complex of the Thracian ruler Sitalk – was discovered in 2000 by the top Bulgarian archaeologist Georgi Kitov, who died of a heart attack during excavations at the same spot in September 2008.

Now the excavations will be restarted by Ivan Hristov from the National History Museum, who is expected to dig out a lot more artifacts buried at the spot by the ancient Thracians.
