Archeologists Find 600-Year-Old Copper Ingots in Veliky Novgorod

Archeologists have found copper ingots dated to the first half of the 15th century in Veliky Novgorod.

      Two whole ingots and one of the fragments were discovered during laying of engineering communications in the southern part of Torgovaya Storona in the historical downtown. The ingots weigh over 10 kilograms. According to the archeologists’ version, these ingots were used in ancient times for production of copper items.

      Scientists estimated the find as rare and valuable. The ingots are being examined at present. Archeologists go on working on the area of the unexpected find.

      Scientists made a similar find in August, 2008 in Mikhaylova Street in the same Torgovaya Storona. In the course of laying a water supply system a unique treasure of 27 Novgorod silver coins of the 15th century was unearthed.
