Ancient Clay Toys Found by Archeologists in Yelets

Lipetsk archeologists go on finding rare artifacts of the Old Russian Yelets Principality (the 12th – 15th centuries).

      Scientists have found several ancient clay toys, which are at least three hundred years older than the famous Romanovs’ items.

      These Yelets toys imitate animals, each of them having holes for a stick. The toys are rather coarse in shape and are not varnished. Most likely, they were made by local handymen. Three pottery wheels earlier found by archeologists there testify to that.

      Historians have found one more proof of the fact that a multinational settlement was located near Yelets on the banks of River Elchik. Thus, among the finds there is a clay kumgan, the Turkic jar used for washing and after toilet procedures.

Archaeological studies near Yelets proceed. They are considered to be the largest in the history of the Lipetsk Region. Historians are yet to examine one third of the large excavation site spreading for 23 thousand square meters.
