Archeologists Find Stone Fortress of Ivan the Terrible Epoch

Historians found information on the location of the ancient fortress in chronicles of the 16th century and records of foreigners.
      The fortress was started to be constructed back in 1566. Archeologists have established that it was Ivan the Terrible himself who ordered to build the stone town in the distant 16th century.
      Last year Vologda historians started excavation works. They had to give up digging in Mira Street, since the fortress had been almost totally destroyed there. However, at the crossroads of Leningradskaya Street and Oktyabrskaya Street they have unearthed fragments of the stone fortress. Most of the works on preservation of the found historical monuments was executed last year. Now the remains of the fortress are under the state protection.
      Soon the fortress will be included in the federal register of monuments. This year archeologists need to carry out immense work on reconstructing the fortress and making the sketch of the fortress.
