17th Century Log Hut Unearthed in Astrakhan Kremlin

A large-scale reconstruction of the Astrakhan Kremlin has presented archeologists with an amazing find.
      Under a layer of soil they found fragments of a house and household items of the 17th century: millstones, an amphora, and stove accessories. The interior has remained intact almost to details. However, the walls of the house are coated with soot the construction was most likely ruined by fire. And yet, being covered with soil, it has been preserved for history.
      Now archeologists insist on covering the 17th century house with a glass roof and making it a demonstration archeological pit for tourists. Rare finds strike even seasoned archeologists. According to them, these may be preconditions for discovering new landmarks in the history of Astrakhan city.
      A real treasure for numismatists coins of the epochs of Romanovs reign and the Gold Horde of the 14th century has been unearthed there. Among them is a stamping coin of 1321.
