Summary (English)

  • ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXPLORATIONS NEAR THE VILLAGE OF KONYOVETS (Rasho Rashev, Stanislav Ivanov – stanislavivanovarh@gmail.com, Tihomir Tihov) During clandestine excavations, remains of stone building were discovered in the southwestern quarter of the Early Mediaeval large earthen fortification, which is the second largest proto-Bulgarian fortification after Pliska, the capital of the First Bulgarian Kingdom. The architectural features of the building find parallels in the monumental structures of Pliska. Probably, the building was a pagan temple dated to the first half of the 9th century AD. Supposedly, an aule from the Pagan period of the First Bulgarian Kingdom existed at the site, which was related to Pliska located at 10 km away and to the proto-Bulgarian tumuli in Kabiyuk locality situated at 3 km from the site.
