Archeologists Find First Birchbark Manuscript in Eastern Siberia

Archeologists have unearthed a birchbark manuscript and 17th century high-heeled shoes in the Krasnoyarsk Krai.

      The excavations took place in July and August in the area of the Staroturukhansk Village, on the place of a presumed location of the Turukhansky Kremlin. The building was founded in 1672.

Altogether more than 1250 finds have been unearthed. Archeologists have dug out the remaining wall of the Kremlin. In the course of excavation of the bottom layer they found fabric fragments, crochet socks, arrowheads and leather footwear. Among them there are even woman's shoes on almost 5 cm high heels.

      The first birchbark manuscript found in Eastern Siberia became the major find: an Old Russian text, which has not yet been deciphered, is scratched on a small fragment of birch bark. 

      Now all finds have been transferred to a laboratory. After check-up the artifacts will be sent for permanent storage in the Turukhansky District museum.
