A sensational archaeological find was discovered in an anti-mafia squad campaign in the region of Petrich town. A border-stone with a sign "Samuel, the Bulgarian Autocrat" on it was confiscated from the home of treasure-hunter Stamen V. from Samuilovo village. Experts from the Blagoevgrad town history museum dated the find from the beginning of the 11th century A.C. To them, the stone is a direct and irrefutable proof that Samuel was a Bulgarian King, a fact that is constantly challenged by Skopje. About 100 copper, silver and gold coins from different ages were discovered in the cellar of treasure-hunter Stamen a.k.a. "The Dingo" in the anti-mafia operation on March 16, 2004. The police say that the coins have been sold to the archaeological finds connoisseurs from Macedonia, who ordered their illegal export from Bulgaria. The Investigation is already working on the case. A team of experts from Sofia arrived yesterday in Blagoevgrad town, because of the unique historic find. The stone was detected at the border, in an attempt to be smuggled in Macedonia. It is almost sure that the stone is an invaluable museum piece. It is not very big in size, but is heavy and it is hard for a single man to carry it, Blagoevgrad Deputy Mayor Kiril Netsev explained. The find already is in the Blagoevgrad history museum under police guard.
The team of Standart was practically pushed out by the officials at the Blagoevgrad history museum. "Do not write anything. Who let you here? We will work. It will take time. You will receive no more information at least by tomorrow", the museum management were flat. Some of the most eminent luminaries in the field of Medieval History came to evaluated and date the stone, sources from the Blagoevgrad Municipality admitted. The border-stone is in the size of a keyboard - about 50 cm long and 40 cm wide, officials at the museum whispered later. "To experts, such a remarkable discovery has not been made in this country for almost a century now," Regional Police Directorate-Blagoevgrad Spokesman Valeri Georgiev said. Treasure-hunter Stamen said at the interrogation that he ran into the stone in his field. His mother, however, told the police her son confided to her that he had taken the antique from a place near the Samuilovo village church.

Texas Observer 2/28/2003 - Bad Bills: Historians write about whether the ancient Macedonians were Hellenic. According to Loring Danforth "The evidence says no." Seems that the consensus among scholars is the exact opposite of what is stated in Bonnenís resolution. " Behind it all is an attempt to deny a group of people the right to identify themselves as they wish." Apparently, the dispute is not just between Greece and the Republic of Macedonia. A minority of non-Greek Slavs within Northern Greece also identify themselves as Macedonian and have suffered human rights abuses for their refusal to assimilate into Greek culture. So not only does HR 107 contain highly questionable facts, its lousy foreign policy. In Prof. Danforthís words: "Itís a bad bill because it is bad history, bad diplomacy, and bad human rights!"
After two years of intense negotiations, Greece stood on the verge of fulfilling the Megali Idea. The 1919 Treaty of Neuilly had awarded Bulgarian territory in western Thrace and Macedonia to Greece.
