Fortress Built under Peter I Unearthed in Samara

Colossal archeological excavations are carried out in the center of Samara

Historical research has been going on there for two years. At first the scientists fixed location of the probable bedding of artifacts of the old city of the 18th - first half of the 19th centuries. Then it was established that the unique historical object - a fortress of the early 18th century - lay under the cultural layer of the last one and a half centuries. Excavation works carried since the last year made it possible for scientists to dig out fragments of the fortress built in the epoch of Peter I and some buildings in its territory.


Presently clearing of the remaining wooden constructions of the 18th - 19th centuries is performed. However, the researchers are yet to find out what the constructions were used for. The constructions will be subjected to conservation in order to be preserved as a valuable monument of the cultural heritage of ancient Samara, the municipal administration reports.
