Elephant of Ivan the Terrible Unearthed in Moscow

Archaeologists have managed to find a unique chess piece from the collection of Ivan the Terrible.

      The valuable historical find was unearthed in a trench under gas pipes in Prechistenka Street in the center of Moscow.

      According to recent reports, the elephant chess piece has an unusual cache inside. The bone carved figurine is hollow inside, with ten silver coins kept there.

      The researchers suggest that they were minted on the Tver and Moscow Mints during the period of 1530-1540. The figure is coated with a special protective compound. The archeological find will be handed over to a museum.
