Archeologists Unearth Medieval Church in Murmansk

Remains of the ancient Pechenga Church constructed by St. Tryphon in the first half of the 16th century have been discovered in the course of archeological excavations in Pechenga Settlement of the Murmansk Region.
       In the layer 1 meter deep the archeologists found a burned fragment of a collapsed log wall, which had presumably been part of the St. Trinity Church of the ancient Pechenga Monastery burned by a Finnish squad, servants of the Swedish king on December, 25th (January, 7th) 1590.
       “It is a part of a collapsed charred wall made of huge pine logs about 40 centimeters in diameter” - archeologist Mark Shakhnovich tells.
       There are no other finds yet, but more extensive archeological excavations could probably give good results, since the major find item – the holy relics of 116 martyrs buried in this place have not been found yet.
