Archaeologists found 7500 fragments of frescos during excavations in the church of a monastery complex in the Karaach Tepe area near Bulgaria’s Black Sea town of Varna, BalkanTravellers said.

Besides the fresco fragments, archeologists had also discovered parts of cloths said to have belonged to saints, as well as letters and a bronze cross that had been used a pendant, BalkanTravellers quoted local media as saying.

The monastery in the Karaach Tepe area was first discovered at the beginning of the twentieth century by Czech-Bulgarian archaeologist Karel Škorpil and is among the Balkans’ largest monastery complexes.

The site has seen archaeological excavations for the past 14 years.
