Underwater Archeologists Look for Ancient Treasures in Lake Ilmen

An archeological expedition started at the bottom of Lake Ilmen in the Novgorod Region looks for trophies of Moscow Prince Ivan III.

      As a legend goes, the treasures were thrown into water after the victory over Novgorodians in the Shelon Battle in July, 1471.

      This winters scientists carried out integrated exploration of the bottom of Lake Ilmen by means of the echo-ranging sonar system and magnetometer. It resulted in detecting about seventy changed bottom relief points, which may probably hide historical rarities.

      Apart from the lost treasures of the Moscow Prince Ivan III, the underwater archaeological expedition intends to find ancient ships and traces of the Soviet armies’ battles for releasing Novgorod from fascists.
