SIGNIFICANT FINDINGS IN HERAKLEA
Coins, a mead mug and utensils have been unearthed at the ancient site of Heraklea. According to Anica Gjorgievska and Engin Nasuh, the artefacts will enrich significantly the collection of the Bitola Museum.
The intensive excavations of Heraklea point to new evidence about the settlement.
Nasuh says that the unearthing of the South Wall has revealed that life in the settlement did not end in the 6th century B.C. but lasted a few more centuries.
“Unearthing of the South Wall is opening new evidence and findings speaking of the life in Heraklea not having ended in the 6th century B.C. Rather, it continued for at least two or three centuries and ended in the late 3rd century B.C.”
A group of students of archaeology from the United States, Canada, Britain and Australia is attending educational training at the Heraklea site within an international project coordinated by the Youth Cultural Centre in Bitola.
