Description

Between 1972 and 1991 a 7000 years old Necropolis has been excavated 4km of the present days Varna. Over 3000 gold objects of a wide range of design and weighing more than 6 kilograms came to light (Grave 43 contained more gold than it has been found in the entire rest of the world for that epoch), 1600 copper objects, 90 stone works, 239 flint artefacts, 650 clay products, over 12000 Dentalium shells and about 1100 Spondylus shell ornaments. A rich, stunning for quality, “treasure” as never found before. Exhibit at Varna Archaeology Museum
