New historical and cultural site to appear in Mstislavl district

The Vikhra river may get the status of the internationally important historical and cultural site. Professor Igor Marzaljuck, head of Archaeology and Special Historical Disciplines Department of Mogilev State A. Kuleshov University, came forward with the respective initiative.

It is to become the result of a number of unique artefacts having been found there. Thus, unique armour that dates back to the 16th century was found in the Vikhra last August. None Belarusian museum has such an exhibit. The other day archaeologists found new artefacts that belonged to the same knight - it's the second spur that still has a metal fly piece. "Thus, Mogilev region boasts a pair of spurs that belonged to one knight. It's the only artefact of the kind in the Republic. The first presentation of the restored knight's armour is likely to take place during the Knights' Fest that will be held in Mstislavl in late July.

Professor Igor Marzaljuck suggests to create a historical and cultural site in Mstislavl to preserve the artefacts that may still be found in the river.
