pits, fireplaces, mound, ritual practices, furnaces, village of Krushare, southeast Bulgaria


The article publishes for the first time the results of the excavations of Stanimirova mound near the village of Krushare, southeastern Bulgaria. The facilities in the mound are a partially destroyed furnace, 13 pits located at different levels in the mound and two fireplaces. After no dating materials were found, one possible interpretation of the structures found is that the entire mound was ritual. Another possible explanation for the structures in the Stanimirova Mound is their purely utilitarian function (as domestic or industrial furnaces).
