Two Thousand Ancient Finds Unearth in Moscow

In the very centre of Moscow, on the territory of old Tyoplye shopping centres (Ilyinka street, Kitai-Gorod) Moscow archeologists have discovered over two thousand 15-19 century objects, including signet rings, arrowheads, coins, locks, keys and church utensils.
      A small hoard of eleven coins has been found on a 500 square meters area; the coins are of historical and cultural value since they were made under the reign of Prince Vasili Dmitrievich, the son of the legendary Dmitry Donskoy.
      No less interesting is the rare 15th century glass icon depicting Jesus Christ; it was most probably brought to Russia from Byzantium.
      During the excavations they have also found a great number of glass bracelets, which were not typical for Old Rus and almost no suchlike bracelets had been unearthed in Moscow before.
      Moreover, the archeologists have found about 40 wooden estate buildings dating back to the 12-17th cc, among them remains of foundations of cellars, draw wells, pits and palisade.
