Bulgarian archaeologists have discovered a huge marble sarcophagus. The sarcophagus measures 2.7 meters long by 1.4 meters wide with walls that are 15 centimeters thick and it is estimated to weigh approximately 6 metric tonnes.
Although it is clear that the tumulus has been raided several times and most of the artefacts have been looted, the archaeologists have been able to recover a number of minor items.
