Dolmen necropolis

village of Cherepovo in Haskovo, Bulgaria
The dolmen necropolis is located south of the village in the Byalata Prast (The White Earth) area. At least 3 dolmens are visible, but they are heavily destroyed. Although they had only one chamber and no dromos or façade, they had a rather complex technical design. Probably all of them had sloping front and rear walls, i.e. the longitudinal walls were composed of two stone slabs, as the lower one was stuck vertically in the ground and the upper one was slightly inclined inward. Probably all had façade slabs with nice openings with a decorative groove: at dolmen 1 the front panel is preserved but it was pulled down and broken in two; with dolmen 3 only the lower part of the front plate is preserved, embedded in the ground as the groove for the aperture is visible.
