Svishtov Treasure

According to the private Nova TV channel, Rosen Todorov, a 42-year-old unemployed Bulgarian man was out "looking for old metals and scrap metal" in a rural area near the town of Svishtov, on the banks of the Danube River. He found a Bronze Age ("Thracian") treasure of 20 gold and bronze objects including bracelets and earrings of gold and bronze axes, more than 4,000 years old hidden in a pottery jar. The find, valued at EUR 1.5 million, was given to the regional historical Museum. Police sources cited by a local newspaper suggest that the finder kept it a week in his home before reporting it, for having agreed to make the donation to the regional Museum, the finder will face no charges of concealing archaeological objects of value.
