Akra is the name of an early Byzantine fortress located in the vicinity of the town of Chernomorets, Municipality of Sozopol, on a cape of the same name. During the two archaeological seasons (20122013) ass. prof. Ivan Hristov, author of the book and his team, managed to explore and study the entire fortress.
   The book summarizes the results of the research work and traces the historical context in which this little explored part of the Bulgarian Black Sea coast developed from the 6th to the 17th century.
