The Institute of Thracology (IT) was created on May 12th 1972 with Decree No. 185 of the Council of Ministers of the People’s Republic of Bulgaria as an autonomous research unit of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) with founder and director Prof. Alexander Fol. The Institute was named after him following a decision of BAS’s General Assembly dated April 3rd, 2006. The following year, on June 25th, 2007 another decision of the General Assembly transformed it into the “Prof. Alexander Fol” Centre of Thracology (CT). Since July 1st, 2010 the Centre of Thracology has been integrated in the Institute for Balkan Studies under the name of Institute for Balkan Studies & “Prof. Alexander Fol” Centre of Thracology of BAS. The Institute of Thracology was conceived as a specialized unit for multidisciplinary study of the history of the Thracian Antiquity, in charge of coordinating the investigations in the context of the Palaeo-Balkan historical development, of the Pre-Greek and Non-Greek components in the ancient historical and cultural space stretching over the Balkan Peninsula and Western Asia Minor and focused upon the Thracian history, archaeology, culture and language within the larger context of Indo-European studies – essential part of the European and global cultural heritage.
