Customs Seals of Dmitry Donskoy's Son Unearthed in Moscow Zaryadye

Scientists of the Archeology Institute, RAS have found dozens of customs seals of the epoch of Dmitry Donskoy's successors in the heart of Moscow.

      The excavations are carried out in Zaryadye, next to the famous demolished hotel Rossiya.

      According to the head of excavation Leonid Belyaev, fragments of oriental ceramics, coins, ornaments, baptismal crosses, clothes, icons, keys and a set of other artifacts, including Moscow's fourth birchbark manuscripst have also been found there. Among the finds there is a wooden pavement of a medieval Moscow shopping street of the 17th century and a street of the 12th century.

      "Most of the finds - over 300 - date back to the second half of the 14th and 15th centuries. Those are "dark centuries" of Moscow archeology, since we had little material related to this period", - Mr. Belyaev noted.
