Published on May 18th, 2010 | by Admin


A range of glass vessels dating back to the end of the 3rd and beginning of the 4th century and a unique vessel from the Bronze Age have been found in Macedonia.

In addition to the find from the Bronze Age, the most significant of the latest finds at the Strumica Fortress are the rare examples of small glass amphorae, the archaeologists told the Vecher newspaper.

According to them, these latest finds only confirm what previous discoveries have suggested – that Strumica was a significant centre during its entire existence, through which passed cultural influences from the North to the South and from the East to the West.

Regarding the glass amphorae, there are several such vessels in the Tsarevi Kuli site, but in Macedonia as a whole, such vessels were found only in the Zelino area around Skopje, archaeologist Zoran Ruyak, head of the Tsarevi Kuli excavations told the publication. They were written about in the 1970s, and since then – according to the archaeologists, no such findings have been made.
