Mapping the Layers of Life

Bulgaria has several little known archaeological sites that potentially hold the answers to key questions about the foundation of western civilisation. Dr Shawn Ross of UNSW's Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences led a field trip for the Tundzha Regional Archaeological Project.

The Tundzha Regional Archaeological Project In the meanders of the Tundzha River lie ancient cities that once controlled the vast corridor between the Thracian plain and the Black and Aegean Seas. These cities were major economic and political centers as well as sites of cultural interaction between Thracians, Macedonians, Greeks, and Romans. The Tundzha Regional Archaeological Project seeks to explore the environmental and archaeological landscapes of the Tundzha river. This research will lead to an understanding of the political and social structure of Thracian society.
