Archeologists Find Remains of 17th Century Polish Fortress in Smolensk

In the ruins of the Polish Fortress unearthed in the centre of Smolensk archeologists have found valuable artifacts of the 17th century.
       In the coming two weeks they will make saw cuts of the wooden constructions for dendrology examination.
       They have found a fragment of Molokhovsky Gate of the 17th century. Remains of an earthen and wooden shaft have well remained in the ground at the depth of 1.5 meters. The constructions were a part of the line of defense, the building of which was started by the Poles in 1611 after annexation of Smolensk to the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
       Archeologists have also acquired a great number of artifacts in the excavation pit: a cast-iron cannon ball, over 30 Polish and Russian coins of the epoch of Tsar Michael Fedorovich, several spearheads, lots of horseshoes, a copper icon and a woman’s bracelet.
