Pliska and Veliki Preslav: non-invasive research into the urban planning of two early medieval centers

Geophysical surveys in Pliska and Veliki Preslav (Bulgaria) brought a breakthrough in our view of the appearance of early medieval centres in the Balkans. Urban planning on a scale of dozens of hectares has been documented for the first time. It has been found that wooden buildings massively accompany masonry architecture. Using a magnetic survey, we have been able to define the road network and functionally specific areas.
