Summary (English)

  • ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXPLORATIONS IN ABRITUS (Galena Radoslavova – galena_rz@abv.bg) Building VIII is situated on the eastern side of the cardo, 5.50 m in width, which runs alongside the peristyle building. It stands at 5.50 m to the east of the eastern side entrance of the peristyle building. Building VIII consists of rooms arranged close to each other and presumably it was residential. Three of the rooms, which were entirely explored, are located on the eastern side of the cardo. Three other rooms are located just east of them. The rooms have a plinth, 1.10 m in height and 60 cm in width, built of cut stones bonded with mortar. A row of bricks, which measure 30 cm by 30 cm by 5 cm, lies above the plinth. A wall of horizontally arranged bricks of adobe, which measure 40 cm by 40 cm by 8 – 10 cm, lies above the row of bricks. The adobe walls were plastered with mortar. The rooms had a second floor. The roof was covered with tegulae and imbrices. The building was burnt twice: presumably, during the First Gothic Rebellion in AD 376 – 378 and when it was demolished during the invasion of the Huns in AD 447. The foundations of two Early Mediaeval sunken-floored dwellings were discovered above the debris of the building.
