Kitov Enters Yet Another Thracian Tomb

Date: 09.09.2006

Policemen guard the Thracian tomb discovered by Georgi Kitov near the village of Konush (southern Bulgaria). The archaeologists haven't succeeded in entering the newly discovered mound. A spearhead, a fragment of a hauberk and a lot of wooden items are easily seen via a small opening made on the surface of the mound. A construction of well-hewn stones is easily seen, too, Dr. Kitov said. The horizontal and vertical joints are decorated with red lines which symbolize Zagreus - a Thracian god of ecstasy, terror, guilt and atonement. Its name is connected with night, sunset and death.

"We have never found a mound with such beautiful red lines," Kitov explained. There is another entrance at the bottom, leading to another chamber, perhaps, but it's blocked up.

The team started excavations at the beginning of the week, but the entrance was discovered only a day ago. The team of Discovery Channel shot the event. Georgi Kitov hopes that he will be able to enter the burial chamber today and discover more finds by the evening.
