Archaeologists discover over 10,000 artefacts on the central streets of Moscow
During the two years of work, experts have collected about 500 archaeological finds just on Birzhevaya Square alone. The most ancient artefacts date back to the 12th century.

Archaeologists discovered over 10,000 artefacts during excavation work conducted on the central streets of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin stated on his official Vkontakte page.

 

Experts in archaeology monitor all improvement and construction work conducted in Moscow. Thus, experts monitored the construction of the Zaryadye Park, and the work conducted as part of the My Street programme as well.

At the beginning of June, experts discovered one of the most ancient artefacts found recently – Bronze Age stone axes, the so-called Fatyanovo axes.

Experts are now considering the options for storing and museumifying the artefacts. Namely, they are planning to open small archaeological open-air museums in the city streets.
