Archeologists to Renew Investigations on Bottom of Lake Ilmen in 2012

In 2012 Novgorod underwater archeologists will renew works by the settlement of Korostyn on the southern coast of Lake Ilmen, where the Novgorod flotilla sank in the 15th century.
      Besides, they plan to examine a large sunken vessel, the age of which is hard to establish before submersions this summer. Apart from investigations near Korostyn the divers plan to work on River Shelon, an inflow of Ilmen, where another Novgorod flotilla was lost.
      According to chronicles, two Novgorod flotillas perished in summer 1471 by Korostyn Village and nearby the mouth of Shelon in the battles against armies of the Moscow Princedom.
      Divers have been searching the places of destruction of flotillas for the last five years. In 2010 archeologists managed to find the most probable place, where they found weapons, ship nails and other artifacts of the Middle Ages.
