Bulgaria Culture News - Rousse Expedition Examines a Medieval Graveyard

The team of Professor Nikolay Ovcharov found a Medieval graveyard from XV-XVII century near the Rousse village Nisovo, BNR announced.
The interesting fact is that by examining the remains of the buried people one can identify their job. Judging by the discovered objects in the graveyard the skeletons belong to a barber, a baker and a priest.
In a number of excavated lots there are skeletons of 3 and 4-year old children, which most probably testify of a medieval epidemic of a deadly disease.
During the excavations 50 stone crosses were processed, whose decoration speak of a catholic influence.
Only on 2 or 3 of them there are signs similar to the Templar signs and images, because of which the archeological expedition near Nisovo started in the first place.
