Bulgarian treasure trove unearthed

Archaeologists dig up gold rings, figurines, bracelets and buttons belonging to Thracian Empire of third century BC.

Archaeologists in Bulgaria have unearthed a treasure dating back to the third century BC.

Gold rings, figurines, bracelets and buttons have been dug up after over 2,000 years of lying in a Bulgarian hillside, near the village of Sveshtari, 400km from the Bulgarian capital Sofia.

The treasure is from the Thracian Empire – a civilisation that competed with the Greeks and Romans for land and influence.
