The research of the site was suspended due to lack of funds during 2012 and 2013. The excavations this year were funded by the Ministry of Culture of Republic of Bulgaria, Foundation "Rusokastron" and Kameno Municipality. They were organized by Regional historical museum Burgas and lead by the archaeologist Milen Nikolov.
Studies aimed to complete the work at the barbican (fortified gateway) and the tower-well, which were revealed in 2009 and 2010. The archaeologists reveiled the whole southern part of the passage and uncovered another cupola width 8.2 m.
