Medieval Ruins

In June of this year, Professor Ivan Hristov from Bulgaria’s National Museum of History in Sofia and a team of archaeological researchers began the first ever discoveries on a tiny Bulgarian island in the Black Sea. Archaeology In Bulgaria reports that this island, St. Thomas Island — Snake Island — has the remains of an Ancient Thracian settlement from the Early Iorn Age, Ancient Thracian ritual pits, and an Early Byzantine — Late roman— settlement from what is believed to be the 5th through the 6th century AD, and a small monastery from the Middle Ages of about the 12th through the 14th century.
