Lecture "Black Sea in Antiquity" in the Burgas Museum this Saturday
Tuesday, 13 Nov 2018 - Global



Black Sea through the eyes of historians is the subject of the museum lecture this Saturday - November 17. Milena Damaskova from the Archaeological Exposition will summarize the research on the development of our coast in the Antiquity and how it has been influenced by the dynamic of the sea level rise and fall. As a result of this process today, a number of ancient settlements and harbours are under water, and their existence remains a mystery to scientists.

The Black Sea was probably known to the people who inhabited the Eastern Mediterranean already during the second millennium BC. Experienced seafarers and later explorers formed the popular concept of "the Black, Finite, North Sea," which is also found in the works of early Christian authors. The lecture will present information from medieval sources and maps of the coastal areas of Byzantium and Bulgaria at that time.

The traditional Saturday lecture at the museum starts at 11.30 hours in the presentation room of the Natural History exposition (30, K. Fotinov Str.) The entrance fee is preferential - for adults 2 BGN and for students and pensioners - 1 BGN.

What we call "Divan Chapraze," explains a Burgas ethnographer this Saturday
Tuesday, 06 Nov 2018 - Global

The museum lecture this week is peeping into the old chests, where the girls held their most precious accessories. It is dedicated to the chaprases - exquisitely decorated plates on a women's belt, also called "pafti", "pahti", "pufti", "pelti". They are an important part of the traditional costume of the Bulgarian woman and fasten the look to the exquisite waist. Different in shape, size, way of making, material, the "patfi" carry a rich symbolism, and the images on them are a reflection of folk concepts and beliefs.

Fotinov Str.) you will learn more about the traditional jewellery stored in the local ethnographic museum and what is the connection between the phrase "Divan chapaz" and the "chaprazi" itself.

A stone with inscription from Nero's reign will be shown for the first time in Aquae calidae
Thursday, 01 Nov 2018 - Global

Epigraphic monument from Emperor Nero marks a turning point in the earlier scientific hypothesis for the beginning of the construction of the Roman baths in Aquae calidae. Until recently, it was assumed that the thermal complex was built by Emperor Trajan in the 2nd century AD, as other Roman bath complexes in the region were built at that time. After the discovery and reading of the inscription on the stone, the lower chronological boundary of the existence of the complex changed to the beginning of the second half of the 1st century and is illustrated by Nero's inscription of a bath. According to Nikolai Sharankov, the beginning of Aquae calidae is dated between 60 and 68 AD. The researcher assumes that it is possible that the bath was built around 61 AD when Nero built roads and road stations in the province of Thrace. Archaeological studies led by archaeologist Prof. Dimcho Momchilov reveal several structures from the middle of the 1st century AD. Among them is a marble basin. Five Steps from its eastern end are located just outside the entrance of Suleiman's Bath - today's museum. The greater part of this facility remains under the foundations of the Turkish bath.

The visitors of Aquae calidae Museum in November will be among the first to see the stone of Emperor Nero. So far, it has not been shown to a wide audience.

The Aquae calidae Museum will be open in November from 9:00 to 17:00 hours, no day off. The cost of visiting the museum is 4 BGN for a regular ticket, 2 BGN for students and pensioners and includes a 3D mapping projection.

The exposition is presented in partnership with the Regional historical museum of Burgas.

Wednesday, 24 Oct 2018 - Natural-History Museum

The educational program of RHM-Burgas continues this Saturday, October 27, with the lecture "The Poisonous Snakes in Bulgaria". Author is the biologist-curator Bozhana Ribarova.

A popular fact is that in Bulgaria most snakes are not poisonous. The topic of the lecture is precisely the few poisonous species that we can encounter in nature, and only during the warm months of the year. Two of the species - steppe viper and aspida, are even considered to have disappeared from the territory of the country and have not been seen for many years. Biologists emphasize that the snake would not attack a man if not irritated, and advise them to be overlooked. It is good for people to wear appropriate shoes and socks when walking around nature, and be careful not to stand up on the reptile accidentally while it lays on the sun.

The lectures in the renovated Natural History Museum in Burgas (30, K. Fotinov St.) are every Saturday at 11.30 h. The entrance fee is preferential - for adults 2 BGN and for students and pensioners - 1 BGN.
