Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!

If you have Google's Chrome (or the open-source Chromium) browser installed, it pops up a button and offers to translate such pages in situ into something almost, but not quite, completely unlike English. It's good enough to get the gist, though, if gist is what you require:


Bag of gold appeared Pamukliyata (UPDATED, PHOTOS)
Unique jewelry from the I century AD, previously undiscovered, dug from the hill near Brestovitza

See what I mean?!

Here is another news report (no photos of the helmet)
Unique finds from the Early Roman period were found in the area of Plovdiv - village of Brestovitza. Dating of objects found in the mound is - I century BC. The most interesting artifact is a combat bronze helmet, belonged to the commander of higher rank. He is in a fragmented state, but all parts are reserved. On it are depicted scenes from mythology or religion, but after restoration will become clear details.


The mound is 70 meters in diameter and height of 18 meters. Excavations are one third of the volume from the top. In the mound were found the graves of two men with their personal belongings. Findings were produced in Rome Italic workshops and probably came to our lands commercially through contracts, said the head of the Archaeological Museum in Plovdiv Konstantin Kisiov. He linked the graves of the Thracian ruler Remetalk II, for whom there is evidence that when he was 23 year-old he was ruling Philippopolis. He was also a keen supporter of Rome.
Among the findings is the umbo - the central part of the wooden shield made of metal. Warriors are usually have placed their names there to verify their property. Captions are read at the moment, but after the restoration will have more information, said Kisiov.
After about a year in the Archaeological Museum will be made exposure restored items. Currently are at only two-thirds of the findings and the remaining are glass and clay. Dating is so accurate, since the graves were discovered silver denarii with portraits of Roman emperors Marc Antony, and Nero. As works of early Roman era these findings are rare, said Kisiov.
Municipality of Plovdiv have financed the excavation of 50,000 Levs and promised to support research to full disclosure of the mound.
