Sofia, Nov 14: Archaeologists have found ruins of a late-Roman-era fortress during an excavation in Svalenik village, nowadays Northern Bulgaria.
The ruin, which was a part of the defence system of the Romans, had been raised in the IV Century as a watch fortification, controlling the road in the River Valley of Malki Lom River.
Archaeologists have so far revealed the south wall and two inner rooms of the fortress, reports News.bg.
The coins and pottery found, suggest that the fortress had survived the big Huns and Goths invasions in the V century, as an already fortified settlement of agriculture population.
The ceramic pottery, arrow making tools and other objects found show that life here proceeded through the period of Second Bulgarian kingdom. (ANI)
