An archaeological discovery of a great importance has been during an anti-treasure hunting action.
During an inspection damages on the mould have been noticed and that provoked a further investigation of the site.
At the level of the antique terrain a funeral ritual had been performed.
Several bronze objects were found, a ring and silver earrings.
Another silver earring was found on the upper level of the mould, dating from IV B.C.
A fragmented urn with burnt human bones is one of the biggest discoveries. It's hand-made. A small object, most probable a knife, was found inside the urn.
The research makes it clear that funeral rituals had been performed by corpse burning in an urn. The researchers' conclusion is that the Thracian mould is sepulchral, and most probably a local Thracian king was buried underneath it.
