Archeologists Unearth a Pickpockets Tool in Pskov

In Luzhsky Pit at the address 39 Gogol Street archeologists have found a few pendant seals and a copper disk with a sharp edge.
      Most likely, it was a special tool of a pickpocket. According to archeologists, the criminal tool has not lost its sharpness throughout centuries and can still cut paper on the fly.
      In the pit at the crossroads of Nekrasov Street and Gogol Street we have found burials, which were not in wooden coffins, but in birchbark. It is unusual that thanks to the birchbark even the muscle of a shin has remained - the archeologist Elena Salmina said.
      In the pit at 27, Nekrasov Street archeologists have unearthed an interesting 17th century collar with long thorns. It was probably put on an animal, or on a man, who would then find it hard to sleep in it.
      Archeologists have also been lucky to find a 15th century manor. We have found two seals: a Pskov state seal and a seal most likely used for land contracts. In the same place there was a magnificent man's ring with a glass insert, womens bracelets, a leather purse decorated with gold pressing and keeping a 11th century cross inside.
