Underground city. Archeologists shared details about a unique find in the Kharkiv region (photo)


More than 300 years residents of Zmiyev live over tunnels. They surround all city lengthways and in across, experts assure. Quite recently the part of the underpass was found accidentally by local archeologists, having seen on the street a failure.

"A failure of the earth was near the building of local department of education. We decided to get into the middle and before us the secret passage opened. It is florid. At first goes meters 5 forward, then meters 5 to the right. This find was for us a real discovery", - Gorodkh the director of Zmiyevsky museum of local lore Mikhail Sayany told.

the Tunnel rather spacious, the archeologist says. Its width fluctuates from 1 meter to 1.5 meters. During excavation of the underpass found ancient artifacts, in particular, a jug which, under an assumption of experts, was made in 8-9 century.

Archeologists are sure: it is possible to find much interesting in a tunnel. However so far studied only a part - 10 meters.

"Is not possible to promote further yet as we came across the deadlock. But the fact that the tunnel has continuation is shown by devices", - Mikhail Sayany assures.

according to experts, underground ways pass under many buildings in Zmiyev. This heritage which remained from founders of the city. Mikhail Sayany is sure that the courses constructed approximately in the middle of the 17th century, together with the large-scale building - the Cossack fortress.

But to investigate a manhole further, is necessary both the special equipment, and the whole group of archeologists. Therefore zmiyevsky local historians will initiate adoption of the regional program in which financing of this excavation will be provided.

"This program is necessary, without financing and without involvement of the Kharkiv archeologists we will not be able to study qualitatively and in detail tunnels. And they, according to my sources, last on many kilometers, even to the well-known zmiyevsky rocks. It is very important to investigate them for archeology. Moreover, a part of tunnels can be improved and made a tourist highlight of Zmiyev", - the director of museum of local lore told.

For now, Mikhail Sayany reported, the new found part of a tunnel will be preserved that it was safe for all citizens.
