Novgorod Archeologists Find 12th Century Hoard

In the course of excavations in the historical centre of Veliki Novgorod, near the Monastery of the Dime archeologists have found hidden treasure of 22 European silver coins called denarii.
      The thin, scale-like dinarii about one centimeter in diameter had been hidden under the base of a wooden utility structure, which experts have dated back to the early 12th century.
      The hoard itself has also been tentatively dated to the same period.
      The treasure unearthed at the excavation near the Monastery of Dime has become the seventh discovered hoard since the beginning of archeological digging in Veliki Novgorod and the second one in the current field season.
      Earlier, in the end of May a unique hoard of 27 early Novgorod silver coins issued in 1420-1447 was found at the excavation in Mikhailov Street.
