Bulgarian Archaeologists Uncover Ancient Roman Roadside Complex Sostra
From:novinite.com  Writer:  Date:2014-05-13
Archaeologists from Bulgaria's National History Museum have uncovered the roadside Sostra complex, situated on the Roman cursus publi-cus from Oescus to Philippopolis.
 
The roadside complex was an important point of rest for dignitaries and even emperors and their relatives who were travelling from Oescus (currently the village of Gigen, Pleven district) to Philippopolis (currently the city of Plovdiv), according to
reports of dnevnik.bg.

 
The part of the roadside complex which has already been researched includes a mausoleum , a necropolis, a castellum, a sanctuary of the Thracian horseman, buildings of a vicus (village), and a part of an ancient road.
 
The site spans a densely built-up area of 6 square kilometers in the valley of the Osam river on the territory of the village of Lomets, Troyan district.
 
The Troyan municipality plans to buy the private property where the excavations are underway and to turn the site into an open-air museum after detailed research and conservation activities.
