Then we should be proud of him we need more knowledgeable people to spread Thracian history around the world. There is noting wrong of pointing out that the media sends wrong messages (which is very usual). I am just annoyed with his comment about ''he (and me)''. How can you decide on someone's personality if you have never met the person? Anyway, I am still happy about the discoveries in Bulgaria. CHEERS

I meant no offense Sonrisa, and all new discoveries in Bulgaria are welcome.

Bulgaria is one of the richest and most exciting archaeological regions in Europe, which is why the theft and manipulation of its heritage for personal and political reasons has been all the more sad:

The Absence of Truth « balkancelts

BEHIND THE GOLDEN MASK – Seuthopolis and the ‘Valley of the Thracian Kings’ « balkancelts

LITTLE METAL MEN


I would be interested to hear your opinion on the evidence, and it should be stated that in the last year we are finally beginning to get some objective information from a new generation of Bulgarian archaeologists about Ancient Thrace.

HEART OF THRACE – The Celts in Central Bulgaria « balkancelts





I think that we will find that the truth about Bulgarian history in this period is actually a lot more interesting than the communist fairy tales that we have been fed until now.

The region thrace today is in greece turkey and bulgaria, The Thracians were hellenized a ton during the Byzantine days since Constantinople (Byzantium) was right smack in the middle of Thrace and it was the center of the empire.

I also think that the Thracians were assimilated a good amount of time before the Bulgarians arrived so not so sure if they had any kind of a significant impact on todays Bulgarians.

Constantinople was built upon an old Greek colony so the town was practically Greek rather than Thracian from the beginning. But in general you're right. I think that the Thracian language survived at least until the 6th century though, especially in the areas that today are Bulgaria.

Some Thracian traditions were passed to Greeks too and in turn to Bulgarians. There are common traditions and those are local.

The Greek names???
Then tell to me about not Greek etymology of names:Geracl, Apollo, Athena, Gera, the Sir, Talpan, Gorgona, Tefra, Orfej, Atej.
But especially me the etymology of words ELLiN and EVKLid interests.
You don't have their etymology and there is no etymology of many other "Ancient Greek" words!
Look at this:
EVKLid.Take out the silly Greek termination "id"... Also it becomes there and then clear that it Sumerian=Татаr words:

E (i) V = "House", "Temple" in Turkic languages and in Sumer language.
K'L = "System", "Erect" in Turkic languages and in Sumer language.
