The Archaeological museum is located within the territory of Abritus National Archaeological Reserve, at 70 “Aprilsko Vastanie” Blvd. The administration section is housed in the premises.
“Ancient traces” is a permanent exposition, which presents the unique archaeological cultural riches, which belong to the earliest documented era in the Ludogorie – the Late Paleolithic, Ancient and Medieval periods.
Two lapidaries are exhibited outside in the museum’s park. The monuments are divided into three groups: dedicatory, tombstone, architectural. The majority date back to the Roman Empire, 2nd-3rd centuries AD, and were discovered in the Late Antiquity Roman city of Abritus. The rest are tombstone and architectural monuments of the Late Middle Ages, 18th-19th centuries, with Christian, Muslim and Armenian inscriptions. Epigraphic monuments reveal the ethnic and religious diversity of the region’s population.
