The papers in this volume of the Thracia series result from the work on a project of the Professor Alexander Fol Centre of Thracology at the Institute of Balkan Studies & Centre of Thracology on the topic Ancient Thrace during the First Millennium BC: Economy, Politics, Society and Culture. It is part of the academic project The Thracians. Genesis and Development of the Ethnos, Cultural Identities, Civilisational Interactions and Heritage from Ancient Times of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. Most of the texts included in the volume were presented as reports at the conference organised in Sofia at the end of 2014 involving scholars and specialists from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, the St. Kliment Ohridski University of Sofia, the New Bulgarian University and museums in the country. The papers and studies presented here are by authors from Bulgaria, Greece, Romania and Macedonia, and they offer a multilateral and original reading of various issues of Thracian history and culture during the first millennium BC.
