Ancient Boat Found by Archeologists Turns to be Ship of Soviet Era

The vessel found by archeologists at the bottom of River Volkhov near Veliky Novgorod was initially dated by scientists to the 15th century.

      However, it proved to be a ship of the USSR era, a representative of the Novgorod State Memorial Estate reported on Tuesday.

      The 21-meter long vessel was detected by means of certain radar equipment near the Settlement of Sitno in the Novgorod Region in the course of bridging over River Volkhov this year.

      The vessel lying at the depth of about 11 m kept a load of 15th century bricks onboard. In the summer divers started examining the vessel.

      “Divers established that the ancient bricks probably got after demolition of an old Russian church were transported by a Soviet ship that sank near Sitno most likely in the 1930s or 1940s. The things found onboard the vessel testify to it. The age of the ship will be specified by tree-ring analysis”, - the interlocutor pointed out.
