I found something very interesting for Thracians till I rode what Russians had written for Pelasgians, so, I see I see this post connected with pelasgians from here- http://www.historum.com/ancient-hist...?postcount=128

Pomponius Mela, about AD 43 or 44 had written ancient treatise on geography in classical Latin, De situ orbis (“A Description of the World”), also known as De chorographia. This maps are his maps and on them can be seen therritory where were Illyria, Thrace, Scytia, Getae, Mysia, Sarmatia, Amazones…..

Now, this is what Yulia Ustinova had written for Thracians:

Midi, I know that you’ll want to see who is Yulia Ustinova, so
Yulia Ustinova | Ben Gurion University of the Negev - Academia.edu



We have written evidence that ancient Macedonians, Thracians and Illyrians understand each other, too.


Hmmmm according this, in ancient times, "ancient Greeks" can’t distinguish between Thracians, Getaeans, Scythians, Mysians , Sarmatians and other local people, so, for Greeks they were same, with same language…
Damn, this look very familiar to me,

19th century
“Грците исто така не разликуваа словенцките народности и сите словени, особено тоi дел од ниф, шчо им причини наi големи неприiатности и се наог'аше во турцко време под нивната опека, они го презираа и го велеа со презреното за ниф име „бугари.
„хондрокефалос".". ….” Wrote by K.P.Misirkov (1874-1926)
Rough translate:
Greeks can not distinguish between Slavic Nations and all Slavs, specially the part of Slavs who make greatest problems to them, and during Turkish rule were under their (Greek) juristdiction, they hate them and calling them with the derogatory name "Bulgarian" wich for them was dispicable name.



Translated from: http://www.misirkov.org/sostauala.htm


Ladies and gentelmen ….. If you ask me, they are the Slavs…

Wasn't Spartacus thracian according to tradition (or Kubrick at least)?

A nice (fictional?) depiction of what sound like thracians in Conn Iggulden's roman novels, can't recall which one.

Nov 8, 2012: Archaeologist shows an artifact, part of 2,400-year old golden hoard found in an ancient Thracian tomb in northern Bulgarian village of Sveshtari, some 250 miles northeast of Sofia

... among the artifacts, dating back to the end of the fourth or the beginning of the third century B.C., were gold jewelry and applications for horse trappings, a tiara with reliefs of lions and fantasy animals, as well as four bracelets and a ring.

The artefacts have been dated to the end of the fourth or the beginning of the third century BC. They were found in the biggest of 150 ancient tombs of the Getae people, a Thracian tribe that was in contact with the Hellenistic world. The hoard also yielded a golden ring, 44 female figure depictions and 100 golden buttons.

"These are amazing findings from the apogee of the rule of the Getae," said Diana Gergova, head of the archaeologist team and a researcher of Thracian culture with the Sofia-based National Archaeology Institute. "From what we see up to now, the tomb may be linked with the first known Getic ruler, Cothelas."

The site is at the ancient Getic burial complex near the village of Sveshtari, about 250 miles north-east of Sofia. One of the tombs there, the Tomb of Sveshtari, is included in the Unesco world heritage list for its unique architectural decor showing half-human, half-plant female figures and painted murals.

The Thracians, ruled by a powerful warrior aristocracy wealthy for their gold treasures, inhabited an area extending over modern Romania and Bulgaria, northern Greece and the European part of Turkey from 4000BC.

They lived on the fringes of the Greek and Roman civilisations, often intermingling and clashing with the more advanced cultures until they were absorbed, in about the year 45, into the Roman empire. Archaeologists have discovered a large number of artefacts in Bulgaria's Thracian tombs in recent decades, providing most of what is known of their culture as they had no written language and left no enduring records.

the tomb ...

In a Bulgarian mound, archaeologists have found perhaps Europe’s earliest massive fortifications. It’s controversially being called Europe’s oldest known town. But whatever Solnitsata’s place in history, it’s becoming clear that the 6,500-year-old Bulgarian site – not far from the continent’s earliest known gold horde – had something very much worth protecting. Researchers announced last week they’d discovered 10-foot-tall (3-meter-tall), 6-foot-thick (1.8-meter-thick) stone walls around the settlement. The find is among the evidence for Solnitsata’s oldest-town status – and further proof of an advanced Copper Age Balkan trade network, according to dig leader Vasil Nikolov, a Bulgarian archaeologist.

Europe's Oldest Town?

Mr. Nikolov seems to be unaware of the Durankulak settlement excavated by Prof. Henrieta Todorova in the same (Varna) region of Bulgaria, which dates to at least 500 years older. Perhaps he (and you) should read the excavation reports before making inacurate statements to the press.

More sensationalist b**** looking for foreign funding...

Its not ''ME'' writing the news I has just been excited about the new discoveries that is all. I don't even live in Bulgaria at the moment. Its funny how people focus on small issues and miss the big picture If ''YOU'' have better knowledge why not share it with the media and say what is your opinion. So that you can contribute and the world can better understand whats going on
