The cultural heritage of Varna and the Black Sea region. The so-called Varna

Nikolay Uvaliev


The topic of the legendary Chalcolithic "so-called Varna" is my most important creative activity and obligation as a journalist-researcher. On the third day after the news that there was a gold treasure near Varna - in October 1972, my classmate Prof. Mikhail Lazarov, then the first researcher at the Varna Archaeological Museum, took me to the Chalcolithic necropolis. In my scenario, and I shot short authentic footage of the site at the BNT Varna Studio, the popular science film, The Golden Sun Set, was created.

Since then, I have continued to collect, compare and establish credible scientific articles, ancient chronicles and opinions from proven researchers from abroad and Bulgaria from the Internet. This report, attached to the 10th Scientific Conference "The Cultural Heritage of Varna and the Black Sea Region", is the result of nearly half a century of creative work.

Attached to the report is the review of Assoc. prof. Veselina Vachkova - lecturer in Medieval History at the National Academy of Sciences, Director of the museum in Perushtitsa, and Corresponding Member of BAN, and Prof. Yordan Detev - Chairman of the International Foundation for Bulgarian Cultural Heritage - Sofia and lecturer at Sofia University on visual technology, compiled on October 27, 2019.
