Medieval Site Found by Unique Svetloyar Lake

Not far from Lake Svetloyar (Nizhniy Novgorod region) archeologists have found remains of the medieval Russian settlement preliminary dated to the 14th-early 15th centuries.
      Apart from numerous crocks of Russian potter's ceramics they have found fragments of medieval knives, flint and steel and a fragment of a millstone for grinding grains.
      Can it be the legendary lost town of Kitezh? Some researchers surmise that legends about the disappeared town of Kitezh could have developed on the basis of peoples historical memory about a settlement, a belfry or a sanctuary that once used to stand on the shore of Svetloyar Lake and was destroyed by a landslip.
      Without high-grade archeological excavations carried out in the unique site it is too early to jump at conclusions. It should be noted that the expedition was financed by its participants, including scientists, students, journalists, and just enthusiasts.
