A lace with two next-to-skin crosses on it has been found by archeologists in the course of excavations in the city of Yeniseisk, the representative of Krasnoyarsk Geoarcheology Danil Lysenko has reported to theRIA Novosti news agency.

      According to him, prospecting archaeological works are carried out in the territory of Yeniseisk. The area of archeological excavations makes more than 1.5 thousand square meters. Earlier archeologists found remains of the 17th century wooden pavement, stockade town walls and a settlement.

      Earlier the RIA Novosti news agency reported that near the stockade town wall archeologists found fragments of a jug made in Western Europe300 years back. The jug has a picture of a bearded face, probably, that of God Bacchus. Such large-scale finds in Yeniseisk, which used to be in many respects a white spot for archeologists, have been made for the first time. Now there is an opportunity to assume the borders, structure and population of this town in the bygone past.

      Yeniseisk was founded by a Cossack group on the left bank of Yenisei in 1619. For 150 years there was the “gate” to Eastern Siberia here, and the town was its administrative and economic center.

      The city of Yeniseisk is on the list of 41 historical settlements of Russia. Yeniseisk is the only settlement in the Krasnoyarsk Krai to have preserved the planning and basics of its historical housing of the turn of the 19th – 20th centuries.
