Glass and amber beads from the largest currently known first millennium BC necropolis in the Central Balkan region.
The necropolis is located between villages Dren and Delyan in the southeastern periphery of Radomir Valley. It was studied in 2011 and 2012 by archaeologists Aneta Bakamska and Philip Mihaylov during rescue excavations in the construction of highway “Struma”.
The cemetery was used for six centuries (11th – 4th c. BC). The only so far documented funerary ritual is cremation. Adornments (earrings, rings, bracelets, fibulas, glass and amber beads etc), horse trappings components, weapon, gold and silver artifacts were found. The site is of extremely high scientific importance, both because of the uniqueness of burial facilities and for its prolonged use, making it possible to trace the development of culture as a whole.
The finds are kept in the Regional History Museum in Pernik.
