Sofia (Bulgaria), Nov 18 (ANI): A team of archaeologists has found over 100 new artifacts, which date back to the early Roman period, at the Gabrevci site in the central part of Macedonia.

According to a report in www.balkantravellers.com , 130 ceramic vessels and deformed bronze objects were discovered during initial excavations, as stated by Trayche Nachev, head of the archaeological team.

The new findings come a month after a ritual funeral coach was discovered at the site, according to media reports.

The area around the village of Konche and the town of Stip is rich in well-researched archaeological sites from different eras.

Several tombs dating to the first century AD and the late Bronze period can be found near Konche, informed the Macedonian Information Agency.

In addition, excavations of the medieval fortress of Isar in Stip yielded findings, including a one-nave church, that illustrated how life in the fortress was organised during different periods of its existence. (ANI)
