Archaeologists from Nova Zagora discovered a well-preserved chariot for funeral of a Thracian aristocrat.
The discovery was made at the so called East mound near the village of Karanovo. The chariots has four wheels and a basket, informs sliveninfo.
The specialists believe it dates back to 1-3 century AD. The archaeologists claim they have stumbled on a secondary funeral in the Thracian mound.
The archaeologists are working in very unfavorable climate conditions and at an unusual time because of the treasure hunters raids.
A month ago the minister of culture announced it will finance a 24-security of the Mound in Karanovo exactly because of the robbers, who are destroying the historical heritage.
Additional funds were given for urgent investigations because of which the archaeologist continued to dig in November as well.
It is believed that five years ago the treasure hunters have stolen another chariot.
