POTTERY FROM THE TIME OF THE TROJAN WAR FOUND IN A MOUND NECROPOLIS
Fragments of imported Mycenaean pottery were discovered during excavations in the Slatina locality, Satovcha municipality (SW Bulgaria) run by Iliya Kirov (National Museum of History). They date back to the middle of the Late Bronze Age (probably XIV – the beginning of the XII century BC) – a period that partly coincides with the time of the Trojan War. Unfortunately, this tumulus is also robbed. This fact confirms the general tendency for intensified treasure-hunting activities in the region of the southwestern Rhodope Mountains, where many rich finds, mainly Thracian armament, originate.
