Ancient walls thought to date back to the 3rd century A.D. have been unearthed in the Roman city of Odessos in Bulgaria.

Part of the walls of a building estimated to date to the Roman era around the third century CE have been found during construction of a residential building in the centre of Bulgaria’s main Black Sea city of Varna.

The walls were found in the area of the Odessos archaeological reserve, near the Roman Thermae baths site in Varna.

The Roman Thermae were in use from the late second century to the late third century CE, at a time when the city was called Odessus, in the empire’s province of Moesia.
