  • Description

    The Moscow Kremlin with its wonderful cathedrals and palaces is a genuine museum of ancient Russian architecture. Many people come here to enjoy its beauty.

    Petya, a Moscow school-boy inquisitive like all children his age, came here too.

    will a building be going up here or in this an excavation? The builders told Petya that dangerous cracks had appeared in the walls of the "Patriarch's Palace" and the Cathedral of "The Twelve Apostles". The ancient building must be immediately reinforced with a new modern foundation.

    At a depth of six meters, the assemblymen ran into trouble. it proved to be logs from the foundation timbers. They dug these out carefully.

    The most ancient construction site consisting of over ten structures was discovered under the former residence of the patriarch.

    Many interesting items were unearthed by the archaeologists. Shoe solves, well preserved pieces of leather, a knife, cannon shot, spurs, charred grain, household utensils.

    Church documents were made authentic with this seal. These finds indicate that people lived on Kremlin Hill long before any mention of Moscow appeared in the chronicals. This is what Petya learned during his visit to the Kremlin.
