Arthur Shippee forwarded some items from the Explorator newsletter. Here's an item about a coin find in Bulgaria. It's interesting when coins are found hiding so near the
surface over hundreds of years. -Editor
Treasure of 79 golden and silver coins was found by archaeologists in a rock crack near the Rodopi
mountain Gulabovo village.
The coins were found at hardly 30 cm underground in a rock's crack, covered with stones.
The crack is in the bases of a Thracian sanctuary, which was functioning as a Christian temple.
