Archeologists Unearth Amazing Finds in Vologda

A few unique historical exhibits have been found by archeologists on the place of excavation of the base of a two-storeyed wooden house in downtown Vologda.

      The most unexpected of them are Dutch white-clay smoking pipes. Archeologists consider the finds date back to the late 17th – early 18th century. The peculiarity of the Dutch pipes, according to the experts, is a very little pan, where not more than one gram of tobacco can fit into.

      Another find is a wooden lace bobbin made somewhat about the 17th or 18th century. Such gadgets are used for lace weaving. Along with the lace bobbin there was found a non-ferrous metal pin, which is similar to the safety pin.  Such pins fasten threads to the small netting pillow.

      During archeological excavations on the site of the wooden house in Vologda they have also found ancient coins, leather footwear and a clay toy bear dating back to the 17th century. Archeologists plan to complete excavation in the next two weeks. Later works on restoration of the building base will be started on this site.

      Excavations became a part of works on restoration of the two-storeyed wooden house in Blagoveshchenskaya Street in the heart of Vologda. The building was completely dismantled and transported for restoration to the Kirillov town in the Vologda Region in summer. Upon completion of all the works the house will be restored on its original place. It is expected to house a museum in future.
