Archeological Exhibition of the Time of Troubles Opens in Moscow

An exhibition of artifacts dated to the Time of Troubles and found in the territory of Moscow has been opened today in the Old Gostini Dvor.

      The displayed utensils and armaments give a picture of the life and economic situation of Muscovites in the 17th century. 180 artifacts found in different years have been collected here.

      The exposition is based on the armaments of the Streltsy (Russian military corps in 16th-17th centuries) and the people’s volunteer corps: chain armors, headdresses, daggers, first firelocks, a mace, fighting axes, as well as household items illustrating life of the desolated, impoverished and depleted Moscow of 1600-1612.

      The exhibition is timed to the Day of National Unity and the 400th anniversary since the end of the Time of Troubles. It runs till January 30, 2013. Thematic excursions and consultations of experts will be arranged for visitors.
