Regional historical museum of Burgas launched this year's regular archaeological research of Rusokastro Fortress. The funding of the excavations in 2018 are again provided from the budget of Municipality Kameno and co-financed by the Ministry of Culture.
This summer the archaeologists will continue their research on the citadel, the water reservoir and a representative two-storey building. Their aim is to reach a state suitable for conservation and restoration of the structures. Head of research at the archaeological site is the director of the Burgas Museum Milen Nikolov with a consultant prof. Konstantin Totev - a specialist in medieval archaeology from the Tarnovo branch of the National Archaeological Institute with a museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
The idea is to have the Rusokastro fortress become the object of cultural tourism of the ranks of Tsarevets, Trapezitsa and Cherven, since in South Bulgaria there is no other medieval site with such features.
