In the course of excavations in Veliky Novgorod archeologists have unearthed more than 2 thousand artifacts.

      Excavation was started near the Nerevsky Pit last year. On the edge of the excavation pit the remains of a wooden pavement laid down in the 11th -15th centuries were unearthed.

      Ancient birchbark manuscripts with short text messages, 14th-15th centuries' lead seals including the State Seals of Veliky Novgorod, as well as jewelry, weapons, and various coins have been found in the cultural layer of 3,5 meter depth.

      Gold Solid of the reigning epoch of the Byzantine emperor Roman III has become one of the main finds. It is the first coin of the kind found in the territory of Veliky Novgorod.
