NEW FINDINGS AT CAREVI KULI - STRUMICA
A team of archaeologists of the Institute for Protection of Culture and Museum in Strumica has come to new archaeological findings at the Carevi Kuli site in Strumica this summer. Most of the new findings relate to the Early Antique Era, which points to continuing life in different historical phases before and after the construction of the fortress unlike previous assumptions of life in the Middle Ages only.
“Some new elements have appeared, above all in the part of pre-historical culture that was formed somewhere in the Fourth Millennium BC. The latest excavations have shown that the fortress most probably existed in the Macedonian-Hellenic period, that is, in the 2nd or 3rd centuries BC, says Zoran Rujak, archaeologist at the Institute-Museum in Strumica and the head of the excavations on the site.
MD: That's great! Also a study on conservation and restoration of the Carevi Kuli Fortress will be made upon completion of the archaeological exploration, and its conduction is expected to start next spring.
