Ruins of late-Roman-era fortress found in Bulgaria

Sofia, Nov 14: Archaeologists have found ruins of a late-Roman-era fortress during an excavation in Svalenik village, nowadays Northern Bulgaria.

Archaeologists have so far revealed the south wall and two inner rooms of the fortress, reports

The coins and pottery found, suggest that the fortress had survived the big Huns and Goths invasions in the V century, as an already fortified settlement of agriculture population.

The ceramic pottery, arrow making tools and other objects found show that life here proceeded through the period of Second Bulgarian kingdom. (ANI)
