Vladimir Monomakh Seal Discovered in Novgorod

      Of all Russian princes who had the Christian name of Basil, historians know Vladimir the Baptizer and his grandson Vladimir Monomakh. After some demure the specialists chose the latter one, because similar Monomakhs seals had been found in Novgorod, Staraya Ladoga and Ukraine before the archeologist said.
