Ancient Skis Have Been Found in Vologda (video)

Archaeologists have found ancient sports equipment in Vologda. They have dug up one antique ski and wooden balls between Museum of Lace and Trade Square. The age of these artefacts is about 300 years. The unique finds are well preserved and the ski still has binding for the foot fixing. It is carefully polished and, as archaeologists say, high precision is required to create it. All the found objects will be then analyzed by historians. They will also be send to Novgorod for the restoration and after that will take place in the Regional Museum of local history. When the excavation is over, the one-storeyed wooden private house will appear in its place.
