Uniwersytet im. Adama Mickiewicza w Poznaniu

Dr Olena Klenina from the Faculty of History of the University of Adam Mickiewicz in Poznań received the Golden Age – an award for outstanding contribution to the culture and science of Bulgaria. This is the highest distinction which a foreigner can receive in this country. The scientist has been conducting research in the Archaeological Expedition of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Novae for 28 years.

Since 2017, the laureate has headed the “Novae” expedition, where under her leadership discovered several unique monuments – baths in the legionary camp, one of the largest in the Lower Danube Limes, and a unique armamentarium, i.e. a military arsenal.

“Golden Age” – the seal of Tsar Simeon the Great is given to authors and artists for their contribution to the development of Bulgarian culture and spirituality, exceptional achievements and the consolidation of Bulgarian culture and national identity. This year, 24 people were honored, including only two foreigners – an archaeologist and historian, Dr Olena Klenina and Tomas Fram – translator of Bulgarian literature into German and journalist.
