Archeologists Discover Ancient Port in Veliky Novgorod

Archeologists have found an allegedly ancient port at the area of pipe-line ditch laying in Veliky Novgorod.

      Experts have discovered massive wooden constructions with logs up to half meter thick at the excavation pit. The find will be preserved and next year will be worked on.

      Earlier it was reported that copper ingots weighing over 10 kg of the Hanseatic Union epoch had been found in the area of installation of engineering communications in Alexander Nevsky Embankment. No ingots of the kind had been even found in the territory of Russia before. Archeologists point out that no archaeological works had been carried out in the place of the find earlier; the thickness of the cultural layer there reaches 5 meters.
