Fieldwork Opportunity: BATULYA ARCHAEOLOGICAL FIELD SCHOOL

Archaeological field school in Bulgaria 2020

The archaeological excavations will be carried out at Batulya fortress – a Byzantine stronghold, situated in Stara planina (Old Mountain). This is relatively new archaeological site – the archaeological excavations here started in 2017. The fortress is registered for the first time in 80s but never has been studied. Nowadays on the terrain can be seen the remains of old fortification wall as well as some of the buildings inside of the stronghold. The protective walls have thickness of 1,5 meters and are preserved along about 100 meters at the Northern part of the fortification. The dimensions of the fortified area are about 1500 sq.m. The walls fence an area with rectangular layout. At the Eastern part on the terrain are traced ruins of square tower.
