Unique 14th Century Flycatcher Found in Azov

Archeologists of the Azov Museum Reserve have found a unique flycatcher and a plow of the 14th century in the course of excavations in the center of Azov, the Rostov Region.
      The flycatcher, which could have belonged to a rich person, is an almost totally closed one-piece integral vessel with a small hole leading to its internal cavity. The principle of operation is as follows: sweet syrup is poured inside to attract a fly, which gets inside, but cannot get out. When it dies the cavity is washed out with water.
      Besides, archeologists have found a plow and a whole jug of fair clay with glaze paintings.
      Since 1960 the Azov Museum Reserve has conducted large-scale regular archaeological research within the citys area.
