Local historians will honor the work of Professor Stefka Angelova with a plaque in front of the Archaeological Museum in Silistra. This was reported to BTA by the cultural institution.
The plaque will be officially unveiled by the end of the month.
The famous archaeologist devoted part of his life to researching and discovering the ancient history of Silistra. She is one of the pioneers of archaeological science in the city, where she worked from the 1960s to the 1990s.
Under the guidance of Prof. Stefka Angelova, the Northern fortress wall of Druster was uncovered, which 60 years ago was the only visible ruin of the fortress above the surface. A part of a monumental palace building, with a plan similar to the palaces of the Bulgarian rulers in Pliska and Preslav, as well as one of the fortress towers, were discovered.
Prof. Stefka Angelova’s excavations in the Danube Park continued for nearly 40 years. Since 1995, the town of Silistra has been turned into a training base for the practice of “Medieval Archaeology” for the students of the “St. Kliment Ohridski” University. Thus, some of today’s leading Bulgarian archaeologists take their first steps in fieldwork precisely in the Danube city.
