With their help the Bulgarians were free (Bulgarian weapons from antiquity, the Middle Ages and modern times)

Perushtitsa, November 13 and 14, 2020

Until the middle of the 20th century, Bulgarian freedom repeatedly depended in the first place on the ability of our people to fight for it with weapons in hand. The aim of the Conference is to present the peculiarities of the Bulgarian armament in different epochs of our history. These features vary not only over time but also in different regions. Therefore, we strongly hope that parts or entire museum collections of weapons, certain rare and / or specific weapons, descriptions of military techniques, etc. will be presented at the conference.

Thematic directions:

- Ancient weapons (emphasis on local Thracian armaments)

- Weapons in the Bulgarian lands in the Middle Ages
