Total 4,300 mediaeval coins dating back to the second half of the 12th and the beginning of the 13th centuries have been unearthed at the Carevi Kuli archaeological site overlooking Strumica.

The coins contained in two ceramic bowls have made one of the largest and most important mediaeval findings so far, according to Archaeologist Zoran Rujak, the head of the ongoing archaeological excavations.

"According to previous knowledge, it is about three types of coins forged under Manojlo I Komnen and subsequent emperors," Rujak says.

Coins dating from different historical periods have been found at the site. The oldest one dates back to 350 B.C. (period under Philip II).
