Ruins of city fence discovered in Tbilisi
An old fence of city has been discovered in Tbilisi. The ruins were found by workers during the ongoing construction works in Pushkini Street in the center of the Georgian capital last night. The ruins reportedly date back to XII-XVIII centuries.
Archaeologists have also found a clay vessel and a kernel stone, which was likely used as a weapon in wars.
Archaeologists were already aware of existence of the fence before having made the discovery from almost all the historical sources about Tbilisi.
The first Georgian geographical atlas drafted in 1735 by Vakhushti Bagrationi also gives a complete outline of the fence.
As reported archaeologists plan to preserve the excavation.
After the ongoing construction works are finished, everyone will be allowed to see the archaeological discovery in the center of Tbilisi. Traffic movement will be closed in the Pushkini Street during the next two weeks.
