A sadly brief bulletin on the Sofia Echo website covers the story of the discovery of a new labyrinth:

The archaeological expedition Strandzha discovered a labyrinth, similar to the famous labyrinth on the island of Crete. The discovery was made near the village of Golyam Derven, close to the Bulgarian-Turkish border.

Archaeologists also found a skeleton of a ruler in the labyrinth, BGNES news agency reported.

Among the finds in the labyrinth were abundantly ornamented ceramics artifacts with unknown so far elements and bird figures.

This is the second unique discovery that the archaeologists made within a week. A few days ago, they found stone ornament, resembling double axe at the entrance of a
tomb. The ornament changed historians' ideas on the establishment of Thracian state in the region.

Unfortunately, that's the entire story! Hopefully more will be forthcoming soon.
