Excavations began in the Novgorod Kremlin

Archaeological excavations in the Novgorod Kremlin.

In the Novgorod Kremlin, excavations began on a previously unexplored site – the place where the church of Boris and Gleb was located. This temple was built in the XII century by order of the Novgorod merchant Sotko Sytinich, who is considered a possible prototype of the epic Sadko.

The temple has not survived to this day; the small church of Andrei Stratilat reminds of its existence – earlier it was one of the side-altars of a large temple. Its foundations are completely hidden underground. Excavations of the monument began in 1940-1941, but due to the outbreak of the Great Patriotic War, the research was stopped, and the excavation was filled up. The exact plan of the ancient church remains unknown. This season, the research will be carried out by the Novgorod architectural and archaeological team of the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences under the leadership of Vladimir Sedov, reports today, July 2, the press service of the IA RAS.

The Institute noted that archaeologists will conduct research on a site that has never been studied before. In the future, scientists intend to explore the entire monument, but given its large area, the study will be carried out in fragments. Earlier, in 2008 – 2020, archaeologists of the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences worked in areas affected by excavations of the pre-war period.

Earlier, “DP” reported that at the excavations in the town of Staraya Russa, Novgorod region, they found the first ancient birch bark letter in the current field season.
