14th century Christian necropolis found in Bulgaria

Bulgarian archaeologists have discovered 15 tombs dating to the 14th century near a medieval fortress in Kardzhali, Bulgaria. Experts believe the graces may have been from defenders of the rock sanctuary of Perperikon which fell under siege by the Turkish emir Orhan in 1362.

The necropolis seems to give credence to the theory that invading Ottoman troops carried out massacres during their invasion.
