    A Journey Around Rousse Region The 27-minute video, “The Lom River Valley Unseen,” was produced by the Rousse Regional Museum of History in Bulgaria as part of a project funded through the Site Preservation and Museum Enhancement Program. This program has been developed by the American Research Center in Sofia and The Field Museum in Chicago with the support of the America for Bulgaria Foundation. The Rousse Regional Museum of History project is entitled, “Bishops Residence from the Late Middle Ages – Archaeology, Education and Tourism.” It was funded for the amount of $39,680. During the project, a few major goals were accomplished, including the restoration and conservation of the Bishop's complex from the early Ottoman period, as well as its preparation for exhibit. The movable valuables from the site were also conserved. As part of this project, the Rousse Museum organized an educational module for archaeology, elaborated a guide through the Rousse Lom River, and produced the video entitled, “The Lom River Valley Unseen.” The premiere of the movie took place at the press conference in Rousse on June 18, 2012. During the meeting, the completion of the project, "Bishops Residence from the Late Middle Ages – Archaeology, Education and Tourism," was announced.

                Imagine navigating the Caribbean, scuba diving on lush coral reefs and picking up treasure that no one has touched for hundreds of years. Capt. Carl "Fizz" Fismer doesn't have to. As one of the last independent marine treasure hunters, this larger-than-life idealist and his dwindling posse of colleagues lead lives full of mystique and adventure. But it's a lifestyle that may soon exist only in legend, thanks to a building mire of government regulations. But until that happens, Capt. Fizz and his crew are passionately pursuing shipwrecks, and they are on the verge of discovering one like no other — “The Boneyard.” Get ready to set sail with Fizz into the unknown, explore ancient underwater mysteries, be part of history-making discoveries — and perhaps most importantly, be there as we capture the implausible lives of the last of the treasure hunting icons.

                    Every July, Mongolians across the country gather to celebrate the traditional games of archery, horse racing and wrestling. It's an event called Naadam and dates back to the 13th Century, a time when training in the 'three manly sports' was vital to the success of Ghengis Khan's many military campaigns. Naadam Events are held at the county, state, and national levels. We traveled about 150km from Ulaanbaatar to a county-level Naadam in the town of Uugtaal where about 500 people were celebrating. This is one in a series of four short videos about the traditional Mongolian Naadam competitions: horse racing, wrestling, archery, and recently added shagai.
