Annotation

Trebeništa is an ancient necropolis located in Macedonia, dating from the Iron Age around the 7th century BC. It is located near the town of Ohrid, in the Republic of Macedonia. It is believed that the necropolis was used by the people from the ancient town of Lychnidos. Trebeništa was discovered in 1918 by Bulgarian soldiers. The government sent archaeologist Karel Škorpil to organize excavations. The artefacts were later researched by Bogdan Filov. Since then, large amounts of graves, four golden masks, and some iron earrings and plates have been found. These finds are housed in the Archaeological Museums in Ohrid, Sofia and Belgrade.
