Due to pleasant results that the archeology season is obtaining in this country, will continue with new projects, among which is the study of the city of Heraclea Sintica, near the temple of Vanga. Twelve students from the United States will collaborate in this new project, Dr Lyudmil Vagalinski from the National Institute of Archeology, Dr Sirma Alexandrova, Dr Ivo Tcholakov and the director of the Petrich museum, Sotir Ivanov.
During July and August 2012, work was carried out on the project but it had to be suspended due to excessive heat. Among the first works that were carried out was the repair of signs in Bulgarian and English languages that had been destroyed as a result of acts of vandalism. In recent years, several valuables were found some of which are already on display at the Petrich Museum. The objects date back to the 4th and 5th centuries BC, including catapult stones, theater masks, terracotta figures, arrows and a coin with the image of the Roman Emperor Flavius Marciano.
Archaeologists now hope to find remains of a theater, forum, and other public buildings.

This site dates from 5,200 to 4,900 years before Christ and was used for the performance of rituals related to fertility and the protection of new crops.
Regarding the results regarding the Cape of Akra It was finally decided that it was temporarily located several centuries earlier than initially believed. Greek and Roman pottery remains similar to those found at a Thracian site in the Strandzha area were found so the site would have a lot to do with it. period in which the Trojan War happened.
I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
