The archaeological excavations at the Perperikon site in south eastern Bulgaria will continue next year, the head of the archaeological team Nikolay Ovcharov told journalists, quoted by BTA.

This season the team studied the buildings' reconstruction pattern from the Antiquity through the Middle Ages.

According to Ovcharov, his team found a series of representative buildings, the mausoleum of an Ottoman military commander, buried with his horse and more than 600 coins from different periods, a silver cross and jewelry.

Next year the excavations will focus on completing the eastern side of the town's acropolis.
