The Kremlin is a historical heart of Moscow. So, every construction project within its precincts or near them is followed by excavations when many archeological finds can be discovered every time. For this once the scientists have dug up several wooden buildings of the fourteenth century. Among them there was jewellery workshop, where they found an icon made from glass, many precious jewels and also tools and instruments of the former owner.

    How did they know where to dig? Or were they trying to build something there? If they were, that’s not good. Next thing you know, they are building luxury condos inside Kremlin! It can happen. With the kind of people at the helm currently, I wouldn’t be surprised at anything. The findings are amazing though.

      They know where to dig from records that were kept at the time. Maps, building plans, that kind of thing.

        So they have all the plans but don’t start excavating until they need some more “precious jewels”. This could be the most secure vault on Earth :)

    How can you show pictures of the dig site and no pictures of the artifacts they found? Strange.

    Are you trying to tell me that they really uncovered Noah’s Arc? That’s amazing but why would God end Noah’s trip in Moscow? That is unconscionable!

      It would be just like those damn, heathen commies to try to bury such an artifact by building the Kremlin on top of it too.

      • Petya says:

        No actually. It’s the same as when in Hollywood any other world’s famous artifact ends up discovered in America, or by a great American hero like Tom Hanks or Indiana Jones. No wonder Americans believe that they won all the wars in the world since, oh I don’t know, Atlantica?
