Police Recover 5,000-Year-Old Treasure in Bulgaria

Gold elements
The Sophia News Agency reports that suspected antiquities smugglers have been detained by Bulgaria’s Agency for National Security. Among the artefacts seized were a marble relief dating to the second or third century 100 coins, and elements of three necklaces made up of some 15,000 gold beads dating from the third millenniums B.C., which had come from a prehistoric necropolis.. Two guns were also recovered. 
The necklaces are estimated to be 5,000 years old. “Such things don’t have a price tag, because this is not a supermarket. Those golden artifacts are 1,500 years old than the Trojan War and 2,500 years older than all Thracian treasures that we know of,” said Bozhidar Dimitrov, director of Sofia’s National History Museum.
