Summary (English)

  • ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXPLORATIONS IN SBORYANOVO (Elena Pencheva – e_pencheva@mail.bg, Mariya Nikolaeva) Dugout No. 2 measured 3.40 m by 3.40 m and its walls were faced with roughly-cut stones. The entrance of the dugout was close to its northern corner. A stove constructed of stones was discovered in its northern corner, containing a layer of ash with sherds, burned bones and eggs’ shells. A storage-pit for grain was explored at the southwestern wall of the dugout. Postholes that supported the roofing construction were documented in Dugout No. 3. Debris from a stove constructed of stones was explored. A room was discovered in the northern part of the building that was previously explored and fragmentary wattle-and-daub from the walls was found. A platform of stone slabs, including a reused quern, was discovered close to the southeastern corner of the building. The settlement dated to the 9th – 10th centuries AD.
