2,400 Year-Old Royal Mask Found in Bulgaria

Archaeologists in the village of Topolchane, Bulgaria have unearthed artifacts of gold, silver and pottery dating back to the 4th century B.C.E., including a golden mask.

"These finds confirm the assumption that they are part of the lavish burial of a Thracian king," said Margarita Tacheva, a professor who was on the dig, 180 miles east of the Bulgarian capital of Sofia.

This is the second mask of its kind found. The first was unearthed in 2004.
