Thousand-Year Birchbark Drawing Discovered in Novgorod

The unique thousand-year old birchbark found in Veliki Novgorod bears a drawing supposedly depicting anchors of one type, and its author was a grown-up person.
      The birchbark found in the 13th Troitsky archeological site in Veliki Novgorod is tentatively dated to the 10th century, and it has no text in it.
      The scroll consisted of two well-preserved fragments, which easily came into one, about five to seven cm large. It can be seen that the person who drew them, was trying to perfect the images of anchors, was training - the archeologists say about the find.
      Spiral ringlets are drawn on the reverse side of the scroll. These are probably the anchor chains - the experts assume.
      The birchbark was found by one of the schoolchildren working in the archeological digging site.
