Early Christian Basilica found during construction work on new Stip – Kocani road


An early Christian era basilica was found during construction work on the new Stip – Kocani express way.

The find was made near the village of Ziganci, and experts from the Stip museum have begun work to locate and preserve the valuable finds.

We have an extensive record of archaeological finds dating to the same period in this area, and we hope that we have uncovered a larger complex, said Mitko Sterjov from the Stip museum.

According to Sterjov, the find should not delay construction given that the crews can relocate on the other side of the planned route, and excavations could be finished by the time they reach Ziganci again, but a slight change in the route is possible.
