Archeologists Discover Unique Things in Veliki Novgorod

A group of archeologists carrying out diggings in Veliki Novgorod have found several ancient feeding bottles for babies.
      The finds were discovered at the digging site in Mikhailova Street. Here the archeologists found wooden feeding devices made of cow horns. The Slavs used to attach leather sacks with milk to the broad ends of hollow horns and their babies would suck the milk through holes in the narrow part of horns.
      It is interesting to note that not far from the archeological excavation site there is a working municipal kindergarten.
      Almost every year archeologists chance to do some interesting findings in Veliki Novgorod. Thus, three years ago they discovered there birchbark manuscripts bearing unprintable words that became a real sensation.
