On September 9, the archaeological excavations for 2019 at the Touida Fortress began. The studies are conducted under the direction of the director of the Regional History Museum "Dr. Simeon Tabakov" Sliven - Nikolay Sirakov.
The goals of archaeologists are to conduct surveys annually until the site is fully discovered, since at this stage the fortress is discovered, explored and preserved in a very small proportion.
This annual excavation is financed entirely by the budget of RIM Sliven and aims to clarify the construction history of public buildings during the early Byzantine era.
