What does an ancient shipwreck near Cape Maslen reveals for the science? Thursday, 13 Feb 2020 - Global What are the ancient Thracians remains of shipwreck found on the seabed near cape Maslen? What contained part of the ship's cargo that was once sunk along the rocky shores? And what do the research of the objects removed from the depths prove? These and many more interesting questions will answer during a lecture at the Regional History Museum – Burgas, the archaeologist Miroslav Klasnakov.
The specialist will tell about the copper ingots with discotic form, found in the aquatory of Maslen Cape.
«By analogy with similar findings from the shipwreck explored at the noses Gelidonya and Uluburun in Turkey and the "honey cakes" from the Bulgarian coast are attributed to the late Bronze Age. Unlike the "crucified Cowhide" bars from the territory of modern Bulgaria, which were found relatively far west of the seashore, those with a discotic form are only found under water», Miroslav Dangmei says. It clarifies that copper ingots are not only related to the cross-border commercial contacts of the Thracian tribal communities of the Strandzha coast with the Aegean World or other parts of the Mediterranean, but also to the mining and processing of metal in Strandja Mountain during the Late Bronze Age.
The event is scheduled for the fifteenth of February, from 11:30 hours at Ethnographic museum - Burgas, 69 Slavyanska Str. (behind the Church of St. St. "Kiril and Methodius"). The entrance fee is preferential – for adults 2.00 BGN, and for students and seniors – 1.00 BGN
