Archeologists Find 12th Century Frescos in Kideksha

 Archeologists have carried out excavations in Kideksha Village (Vladimir Region), the site of the Old Russian architecture monument – Sts. Boris and Gleb Church.

As a result of digging works they have unearthed bottom parts of the ancient building’s walls that were hidden under later stratifications. On the bottom parts of columns and walls the experts have found frescos of the 12th century.

The Sts. Boris and Gleb Church was constructed in the mid 12th century by order of Prince Yury Dolgoruky and was considered the most ancient white-stone church of Northeastern Russia. In the 17th century a part of the church collapsed and the remaining part was restored with preservation of its initial forms. Now archeologists conduct excavations outside of the church – they examine cultural layers of the medieval village.
