Archaeological Findings since 1812 Displayed in Moscow

Moscow archaeologists have displayed a unique ax with the mark "1812". It was found during recent excavations in the historical center of Moscow.

      Among the findings related to the Patriotic War of 1812 there is the decoration used for the belt of the quiver – the headgear of Russian officers of that epoch. Other finds include a button of a French uniform of the 25th Infantry Regiment, which was discovered at Prechistenskaya Embankment, a fragment of a cup with a portrait of Napoleon, a few cannon balls, and a backpack of one of the citizen soldiers.

      Archaeologists have not lost hope to find the treasure of Count Rostopchin, the governor-general of Moscow. He brought his collection of art treasures and presumably hid in abandoned quarries near Moscow.
