    Summary (English)

    • ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXPLORATIONS IN AUGUSTA TRAIANAVEREYA (Maria Kamisheva – The site covered an area of c. 270 sq. m. and is situated in the northern part of Augusta Traiana. In 2006 – 2007, part of the inner fortification wall with three adjacent pillars was discovered. During the present explorations, another part of the inner fortification wall with three adjacent pillars and parts of two rooms situated nearby were revealed. The wall and the rooms were built during the second half of the 2nd century AD. The rooms were constructed of rubble masonry bonded with mud. The total length of the excavated fortification wall was 29.50 m with six adjacent pillars. The size of the pillars varied from 1.11 m by 1.53 m to 1.25 m by 1.71 m. The fortification wall was built of mortared rubble masonry. At the end of the 3rd – beginning of the 4th century AD, the spaces between the third and the fourth and between the fifth and the sixth pillars were filled. Two adjacent rooms arranged in a line, constructed of mortared rubble masonry, were built to the south of the fortification wall. Pottery of the early 3rd century AD was found in the layers below the rooms. During the 4th – 6th century AD, the two rooms were damaged, the spaces between the pillars were filled and the width of the fortification wall was increased. A sunken-floored house was built in the eastern room. A patch of burned mud bricks and two pits with materials of the 12th – 14th centuries were discovered.
