ARCHAEOLOGISTS IN BULGARIA’S SAPAREVA BANYA UNEARTH ROMAN VILLA GRAVES OF CHILD, MAN LIKELY KILLED IN HUN INVASION

Are the man and child in the graves at a ruined Roman villa in Bulgaria two Roman victims of Atilla the Hun’s advance into the Balkans in the 5th Century A.D. and will their [skeletal] remains reveal wounding mechanism, forensic proof of the horrific destructive capabilities of the Scythian axe or “Hun(nic) Tomahawke” as it it sometimes called….?? Or did they die victims of happenstance when the roof of the villa collapsed under fire probably set by marauding Huns….NOTE: Saint Sidonius Apollinaris of Gaul writes in one of his 5th Century A.D. panygeric’s about the Huns and fire: “Again and again they broke loose with raid and fire and sword and savagery and pillage destroyed all things nearby.” No forensic detail at all in the article or report on the mechanism of the destruction of the villa. But then again Bulgaria is putting out archaeology news stories at a frenetic, fast and furious pace and what we see in most are the ‘just out of the ground’ reports. Still…an interesting read “giving life” to histories stories about the Hunnic advance in the Balkans…
