The walls, about three metres high, were found in the area of the Odessos archaeological reserve, near the Roman Thermae baths site in Varna. They were in use from the late second century to the late third century AD, at a time when the city was called Odessus, in the empire’s province of Moesia. The archaeologists will conduct further studies of the Roman building. After that a commission of experts will consider what changes should be made to the construction project so that the archaeological finds may be preserved.
