Thracian Tomb-Reproduction
Kazanlak, Romania
Entrance to the reproduction of a 4th century BC Thracian
Tomb next door, a World Heritage Site.  No damage to the
original is possible if tourists visit a copy.  This was my
introduction to the ancient civilization of Thrace,  part of
Greece during the classical period and today.      
The impressive artwork tended towards a focus upon the
military.  Horses suggest a strong cavalry.  
Thracian chariots must have been another strong force.
Infantry without a doubt, shields and various weapons.
Blow trumpets for the ancient military power of Thrace.
