Oldest Stone Palace Discovered in Novgorod
Excavation Scheme of Novgorod Kremlin

Archeologists have found remains of an unknown ancient building at the excavation near the Faceted Palace in the Novgorod Kremlin.
      The discovered construction was most probably the stone palace built in 1350 by order of Archbishop Vasili of Novgorod and Pskov.
      The walls are two and a half meters high; there have also remained four arches and the cellar under the walls.
      Besides the hypothesis about the stone palace the researchers do not reject an alternative version, under which the find represents the remains of the grand tower chamber. According to chronicles the tower chamber was built in Vladychny Court in 1341, also by order of Archbishop Vasili.
      Till date the Faceted Palace was considered to be the most ancient known civil construction found in Russia. It was erected back in 1440 by order of Archbishop Euthymius.
