Thrace and Thracian History

    While visiting Bulgaria, I got to see some old Europan history going back almost to 0 CE. However, I also learned that there is a Thracian legacy, which is truly amazing.

    In the last 10 years or so, an effort has been made to explore several ancient tombs at Starosel, Kazanluk, Alexandrovo and Perperek (near the southern Bulgarian town of Kurdjali). There may be more.

    I was actually reading an Archaeology magazine awhile back, and I stumbled over an article about Thracian chariot burials -- it's absolutely fascinating. Here's a link if you're interested.
