I'll post some other pictures if you'd like to are but I'd rather not get too off topic so Id start an off topic thread. Some of the detail is really nice. The tight roads and high walls are pretty cool. You should see the thickness of the walls surrounding the city. Can post tomorrow if you'd like.
    That would be great. I would really like to see them. I wouldn't doubt the thickness of the walls. If it was meant to hold back invaders, they would need to be solid. In any case, I can't to see the other photos you have. Thanks.

    Kind of hard to see without any reference, but I think you'll get the point:

    Nice photos. Certainly looks like classic fortress style. When on a battle front, you leave nothing to chance. Probably didn't help much in the end though when the Ottomans overran the island. Great historic images. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, I should have edited them before uploading though, color and all is off since they are unedited RAW images. Great time though, have some nice panoramas from up on top of a bell tower... fun stuff

    Thanks for the info 'en4eff'. I thought this looked like a piece under Alexander, but I wasn't sure. However, it was sold as being issued under Asen. Unfortunately, I don't have any solid reference material for medieval Bulgarian coins, so I used the information that was provided. Again, I appreciate the help.
