Novgrad  Tash Bair I: Аrchaeological investigations at the southernmost point of the Danube (Excavations and Research, vol. 48) 
Language: English
   The Bulgarian-German collaboration in archaeological research at the confluence of the Yantra and the Danube has a long and established tradition. The ongoing research now opens its third chapter in the Bulgarian-German research at the mouth of the Yantra River, with which we have entered the seventh decade since the research began. The previous research had already established that the important sites at the Tach Bair play a key role in understanding settlement system at the mouth of the Yantra. This volume contains the results and finds of the intensive field surveys and the targeted excavations that were carried out during the first research from 2018 to 2020, including pottery and small finds as well as the results of the interdisciplinary investigations.
