The end of Second World War (1939-1945) marks a turning point in the history of East Europe. The Iron curtain and the Cold War divides Europe in two parts. The new socialist, pro-Soviet regimes to the East put the region in isolation from political and economic consensus of Western Europe – the so called Eastern Bloc is created. The ideology of communism is imposed in all spheres of public life and it lasts almost half a century. As in all any other eras, culture and art are a mirror of social processes and for 45 years in East Europe they remain highly subordinate to the communist ideology and controlled by the ruling Communist parties. Today the most visible and intriguing evidences of this period are the giant monuments and monumental complexes built to last along with the Communist states. After the collapse of the socialist regimes in East Europe many of these monuments lost their meaning but still deserve attention for their monumental aesthetics and artistic value. Being abandoned and left with no or poor maintenance they slightly crumble down and disappear from the public memory while the ongoing debate about their destiny in East European countries has not finished yet. During the Cold War Bulgarian art culture exists on the curious border of overlapping multiple centres. Between East and West, local and global, Bulgarian art and architecture create their most successful projects in the period as domestic interpretations of the global trends at the time. As a result one...

The main goal of our project is to provide education and training in underwater archaeology through participation in ongoing research projects. The first of these will focus on shipbuilding in the Ottoman Era and seafaring in the area of the Black Sea and the Eastern Mediterranean. Our research aims to fill in the gaps in our scientific knowledge in this field. The main tools of the research will be excavation as well as the accurate recording of an actual shipwreck. There is a high number of Ottoman shipwrecks discovered along the Western coast of the Black Sea but only one of them has been excavated so far. The research will cover several important scientific areas such as: technology and tradition of Ottoman shipbuilding, shipbuilding centers, trading routes etc. Our second research project is aimed at the study of terrestrial and marine interactions of humans living in the region in prehistory. Its goals will be achieved through a variety of instruments, including a geophysical survey, mapping and 3D reconstruction of submerged ancient landscapes; in prehistory the entire seafloor of the Black Sea was dry land that was submerged during the Holocene. More than twenty submerged prehistoric settlements have been identified in Bulgarian waters until this day; some are associated with the highly complex Varna Copper Age culture. The main focus of this line of research will be the ancient coastal landscapes and the changes that took place there; an attempt at their reconstruction will be made. Our goal is to broaden...

Via Diagonalis (Via Militaris) became the most important road through the Balkan Peninsula in Roman times when it connected the city of Singidunum (today’s Belgrade, Serbia) on the Danube River with Byzantium (Istanbul) – the city which would later become the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire. The road is ca. 1000 km (600 miles) long and passes through large important Roman cities like Naissus, Serdica, Philippopolis and Hadrianopolis. It is the fundamental connection between the western part of the Empire and the East. It was also the official route for armies moving throughout the provinces.
Mansio Lissae, later renamed Bona Mansio (Lat. Good Station) is one of the few archaeologically identified Roman road stations on the route of Via Diagonalis. The initial name of the site derives from the nearby Thracian settlement of Lissa. Mansio Lissae was a fortified structure, one of many, intended to safeguard the main road. It is situated in the Thracian Valley, between the Roman cities of Serdica (modern Sofia) and Philippopolis (modern Plovdiv). The station is in the form of an irregular tetragon, surrounded by thick walls with corner towers. The ruins of the fortification are still visible high above ground. During the Ottoman period it was reused and renamed “Assar”- which in Turkish means “Fortress”....
