Diggings in Troy of St. Petersburg Coming to an End

In the next two years all archeological research on the site of the future construction of Okhta Centre in Saint Petersburg may be completed, the director of the archeological expedition in the estuary of River Okhta Pyotr Sorokin said.
      He added that within two years of archeological works presently the biggest in the North West of Russia they managed to do a lot: discovered ramparts of the fortresses of first and the second Nyenskans, and the ancient Swedish fortress Landscrona, which is older than both the Nyenskans, and still deeper, under a sand layer they found a Neolithic settlement site.
      We have found ceramics, stone tools, and three burial mounds there, Mr. Sorokin reported and pointed out that the digging area is in fact the Troy of Saint Petersburg, where archeologists from Saint Petersburg, Volgograd, Perm and Lithuania are working.
