Remains of Annalistic Yelets Exposed to Explosives

The famous Lavsky Archeological Complex under Yelets is being destroyed, archeologist of the State Directorate on Culture Protection Nadezhda Chalykh informed.
      The monument suffers from the neighboring Lavsky borrow pit. The pit for limestone mining is being expanded nearing the archeological complex. As a result in a few recent years a cultural layer on the area of 5 hectares has been erased Nadezda Chalykh said. According to her, there were destructed plots that had not yet been examined by archeologists.
      The Lavsky Archeological Complex is a unique monument including a site of an ancient fortified settlement and two temporary settlements. The monument is multilayered, i.e. people lived on its territory in various epochs, starting from the early Iron Age (1.5 thousand years BC) till the late Middle Age.
      According to Professor Nikolai Tropin, the fortified settlement is that same annalistic Yelets, which was mentioned in the chronicles back in 1146.
