Archeologists Found 32 Birchbark Manuscripts in Season 2012 in Veliky Novgorod

Russian archeologists have found 32 birchbark manuscripts in the excavation season of 2012 in Veliky Novgorod.

      Most of the manuscripts are samples of ancient business correspondence.

      Among the pieces found in Troitsky Pit this year there was a birchbark manuscript with an incantation against fever. The birchbark manuscripts were found in Troitsky Pit located in the historical city center to the South of the Novgorod Kremlin.

      In recent years a number of unique finds have been discovered there. Among them is the well-known Novgorod Psalter (a wax book of the 11th century), about 500 birchbark manuscripts, and remains of Olisey Grechin’s art studio of the 12th century.

      In the current field season of excavations in Troitsky Pit were carried out for about three months.

      Presently they have come to an end.
