Shields of a Macedonian King Revealed in Prilep Village


Parts of Bronze shields 2,200 years old, which belonged to the ancient Macedonian soldiers, have been found in village Bonce near Prilep. This exceptional revelation has stirred experts from the Prilep Bureau and Museum because these are unique findings with exceptional scientific and historic value, confirming the spanning of the antique Macedonian state in these areas, as well as the Macedonian identity, says archaeologist Dusko Temelkoski.

The shields’ value is even greater, because they bear the name of Macedonian king Demetrius, one of the heirs of Alexander of Macedonia, stresses Temelkovski, adding that such shields were used in parades by the guard of king Demetrius.
