Arrow This is fascinating...absolutely fascinating.

My ex is half Czech and half Bulgarian so in looking at news from around there, he came across this interesting news. This gold hoard was unearthed in Bulgaria very recently. The beauty and mystique of these artifacts is so think of those people so very long ago (this is really, really an old city) and what they were doing, how they lived...

This is just one little excerpt: There are several very cool photos. Be sure to check them out with the link at the bottom.

The new golden artifacts are dated back to the end of the fourth or beginning of the third century BC and we found in the biggest of 26 ancient tombs of the Getes, a Thracian tribe that was in contact with the Hellenistic world. Picture taken November 7, 2012.
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Thomas Jefferson
