12th Century Frescos Found in Veliky Novgorod

Fragments of unique ancient frescos have been found in the St. George Monastery of Veliky Novgorod.

      The archaeologists found the artifacts in the altar part of the St. George Cathedral.

      According to experts, the frescos broken off from the church walls in the 18th or 19th century became a sort of upfilling for making the new floor. Experts go on studying the found materials in the museum workshop. There are thousands of the 12th century fresco fragments on the desks and dozens of boxes filled with plaster wreckages. The restorers need to clean off dirt and later paintings from the collected fragments.

      So far they have discerned notes on the death of the sons of Prince Yaroslav Vladimirovich that specify earlier unknown dates, and a few lines about the repose of Archbishop Anthony.
