Azov Streets Please Archeologists with Rare Finds

In the course of three-week diggings in the Oktyabrskaya Street in Azov (Rostov Region) archeologists have found a few intriguing artifacts of the late 18th-early 19th century.
      As the head of archeology department of the Azov History, Archaeology and Paleontology Memorial Estate Andrey Maslovsky reported, they had unearthed an ancient oven of unfired bricks, fragments of housewares, three cannonballs, two five-copeck coins of the epoch of Catherine the Great and a coin of the reign of Alexander I.
      Little earlier archeologists acquired one more unique find. Near to a stone wall of the 14th-15th in Yaroslavskaya Street local dwellers found a macehead of the 15th century. The ancient weapon remained in an excellent condition and was handed over to museum workers for free, not to mention a bar of chocolate.
