A nice piece in Balkan Traveller (obviously someone there likes archaeology, the site keeps throwing up interesting pieces) about the recent dig at Taor, better known as Justiniana Prima, the home of the emperor Justianian.
“A number of coins, jewellery, ceramic bowls, weapons, tools and other artefacts have been unearthed at Taor,” archaeologist Kire Ristov of the Museum of the City of Skopje who has headed the systematic excavations of the site since 2000 told the Vecher newspaper recently.
He added that a part of the wall surrounding the settlement, two buildings and parts of public structures were also defined last year. Another major find was the monogram, or Justinian I seal, along with parts of capitols with inscribed elements of Early Christian motifs that were first used in a public building.
