Treasure of Peter the Great Epoch Found in Pskov

Archeologists have found a treasure of the 18th century copper coins near the Troitsky Bridge in Pskov.

      As the senior research associate of the Pskov Archaeological Center Alexey Yakovlev reported, the treasure was found in an under-stove pit during excavation on the left bank of River Pskova near the bridge.

      “The owner of the treasure was most likely rather poor. He probably did the military service in the olden days. He could be a veteran who saved for rainy day. As a result he saved nothing, since his house was burned down” - the Pskov archeologist briefly described the find.

      The fire made the coins stuck together in one lump, so it is impossible to say how many they are. According to experts, it all comes to 20 kopeks. The amount is not big: it would suffice for a couple of feasts in a tavern in those days.
