Members of the archaeological expedition have found mortars, cannon balls, and a lead lot (a device for measuring depth) in the wreckage of the naval ship 'Saint Alexander', which was part of the Black Sea Fleet and sank in 1786 near Cape Tarkhankut in Crimea. It will help study the early history of the fleet, Viktor Lebedinsky, a senior researcher at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, informed.

«We were conducting work, found some interesting objects: a small mortar, a lead lot, as well as rigging items from the ship, various elements of weapons, ammunition, a cannon ball, and chain/bar shots. These are interesting findings, given that this was one of the first ships to join the Black Sea Fleet. All these items tell us more about the early history of the fleet,» Lebedinsky said.

Also, there are documents pertaining to the ship in the naval archives: orders for the supply of weapons from Tula for this ship and payroll records, informed Oleg Zolotarev, the head of the Tula regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society (RGO). There is also a confirmation that forged elements, fasteners for 'Saint Alexander' were made in Tula.
