Found in June at the Teatralnaya Square in Moscow city center, the ancient tavern still had some remains of its previous activity: ceramic shards of dishes, cups, coins and bottles. Among the finds, there were even metal buckles and buttons, which had fallen through gaps in the wooden floor.
Now, all the unique finds have been passed over to the Museum of Moscow, and the tavern was mothballed at a depth of almost 3 meters. The bar was also put on the archaeological map of the city, according to a message on the official website of the Mayor of Moscow.
The bar's log construction remained undamaged, in the same condition as it was discovered. To preserve it, the structure was covered with a layer of soil, which has similar ingredients to the one that was keeping it hidden underground all this years.
