Alanian necropolis was discovered in Bulgaria

35 kilometers from the Bulgarian city of Dobrich Bulgarian archaeologists discovered the Alanian necropolis. This was reported to the South Ossetian-Bulgarian Friendship Society by the Adviser to the Varna Community and Director of the Regional historical Museum of Dobrich Kostadin Kostadinov.

"We have been digging the third week and are delighted with the results", - said the Bulgarian scientist.

The necropolis was discovered by the Candidate of History, researcher at the Department "Middle Ages" of the Dobrich Regional History Museum Bojan Totev Ivanov.

This is the second Alanian necropolis discovered by the scientists in the Republic of Bulgaria. The first, located three kilometers from the first one, was discovered six years ago also by Bojan Totev.

Bojan Totev is an outstanding Bulgarian scientist. His research interests include the study of the archaeological heritage of the steppe peoples in Europe, on the Balkan Peninsula. He has been researching the cultural influence on the great trade routes. Scientific activities of Bojan Totev are expressed in a series of publications issued in Bulgarian, Russian, Kazakh and English languages, in the reports, made at international conferences and participation in archeological expeditions in Bulgaria, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

"We are very happy about this discovery - said Kostadin Kostadinov. - There are the same burials here, as in Alan catacombs in the Caucasus. That's impressive. "

The South Ossetian-Bulgarian Friendship Society was registered in 2006. The first chairman was an outstanding Ossetian scientist, Doctor of History, Professor Murat Sanakoev. After his tragic death by the decision of the general meeting of the participants, the Society was named after him. The Society is engaged in the development of scientific and cultural cooperation with Bulgaria.
