After an "Endurance Journey" through Europe, with a lots of difficulties, changes, and strange encounters we are finally in the field visiting some nice caves.
During the previous week, the Balkan Cave Archaeology team indexed more than 15 new caves, which will soon appear on our cave depot section. These are mainly caves from Croatia and Slovenia, but we also indexed one cave from Albania (Velce), two from Greece (Antiparos and Ayia Triada) and one from Bulgaria (Devetashka).
But the Great news has come from the Balkan Speleological Union. The BCA team was overjoyed when they received this mail from Alexey Zhalov!
Balkan Speleological Union recognises Balkan Cave Archaeology project as a research endeavour beneficial to the study of Balkan karst areas and how those have been used by people in the Neolithic.
"We are happy to inform you that the Bureau of Balkan Speleological Union appreciates the initiative of foundation of Balkan Cave Archaeology project as very useful for the study of Balkan caves and the partnership among Balkan cavers.
We spread already your kind letter to all national delegates and speleological organisations with appeal to joint the project.
We would be pleased if you agree to carry out the project under the patronage of BSU and to use our logo with link to our web page in the page of the project.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further information,
President of Balkan Speleological Union
