Moscow archaeologists explored the necropolis of the temple of Cosmas and Damian
Studies were carried out as part of preventive archaeology works preceding the construction works on the embankment. The northern boundary of the necropolis had been revealed and the stratigraphy of the cemetery had been ascertained as a result of the excavations. Archaeologists have found scattered graves and more than 140 household items. «Most finds chronologically fall within the range between the XVI and the early XX century. However, there are individual items among the finds dated to earlier periods — pulos (pulo — a small copper coin) from Tver, dated to the XV century,» - the Department informed.
