Hidden Treasures of Old Ryazan

 “Russian Troy” has exposed one more treasure hidden in times of Mongol invasion. Rediscovered treasures will be displayed in Ryazan museum not earlier than after two years – approximately this much time is needed for restoration.


On  July  8, 2013 during archeological excavations another treasure – this time silver and gilt jewelries dated from 12-13 centuries AD – containing bracelets, pendants, beads, medallions and other items was found on the territory of Old Ryazan fort, the ancient capital of Principality of Ryazan. This finding is the 17th one since 1822, when there was found the first treasure – during road works the laborers blundered on a decomposed sack filled with gorgeous precious stone jewelries weighting almost 3 kg. They were named as Knyaz Shoulder Straps and now are displayed in Kremlin Armory. The latest treasure was rediscovered in Northern, the most ancient part of Old Ryazan hill fort. Excavations on the territory are being performed by a joint archeological expedition of Archeology Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences and Ryazan History Museum-Preserve.
