Surely, there are some artifacts of pre-Mongol period. The crosses are to be dated a little later. The historians are not ready to answer, what necropolis they are coming from. The earthworks are going on under the control of specialists. The artifacts are to be committed to the funds of the Novgorod museum for keeping.
