A team from the Natural History Museum of Burgas responded to a signal over found fossilized animal bones near the village of Aheloy, Municipality Pomorie.
The signal was sent to us by the Russian journalist Nikolai Zamyatin, who found them at the beach near Aheloy. After similar signal, at the beginning of 2013, the museum received two valuable fossils, found during construction works in Gorno Ezerovo.
The findings in Aheloi really resembled fossilized bones of ancient mammals. In the museum collection there are already such samples and the inspection of Aheloy Beach confirmed our assumptions that these are geological formations already known to our specialist.
The geological strata of this site formed 10-12 million years ago during the Pliocene and is characteristic for river-lake littoral deposits. When the layers begin to compact, the carbonate substance found in them dissolves, infiltrates and deposits in the gaps as carbonate gels. The observed geological formation in Aheloy are result of such phenomena.
We would like to thank Mr. Zamyatin for being responsible!
We call on all citizens who find similar formations or archaeological findings to notify Regional Burgas Museum over the telephone numbers/ emails, provided on our [url=http://www.burgasmuseums.bg/index.php?tab=home&page=contact&lang=en]Contact page[/url]!
Christmas is coming! At this time of the year more than ever we feel our souls full of warmth, love and kindness. People are different at Christmas - they are positively charged, their thoughts are festive, people are more tolerant and peaceful.
In our lives every day we come across pain, temptation, the search for a better way. The people we encounter are often unreasonable, self-centered and illogical. This makes us lose our faith, to succumb to weakness. But you must not! In our search for better life we can not do without faith, even when we think we're lost in the world. "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." is said in the Gospel of St. Matthew ...
In the week before Christmas the Orthodox Church, while eagerly waiting for the Young Lord to be born, honors the holidays of five remarkable Christian martyrs.
December 20 - St.Ignatius of Antioch
December 22 - St. Anastasia the Pharmakolytria (Anastasia of Sirmium)
December 24 - St. Eugenia of Rome
