Treasure Trove

Pat gets a golden no-prize for bringing us news of a treasure trove that's older than Troy's gold:

The golden ornaments, estimated to be between 4,100 and 4,200 years old, have been unearthed gradually during the past year from an ancient tomb near the central village of Dabene, about 75 miles east of the capital, Sofia, said Vasil Nikolov, an academic consultant on the excavations.

"This treasure is a bit older than Schliemann's finds in Troy, and contains much more golden ornaments," Nikolov said.

Indiana Jones would be proud...

The finds are neither old nor more than Troy's adornments, but rather important for Balkan Prehistory.
