Construction workers doing soil reinforcement in the Taynitsky Garden found the bomb buried under a large amount of soil. After evacuating the area, the bomb was safely removed and deactivated. Coincidentally, the bomb was found on August 15th, Russia’s Archaeologist Day.

Moscow was the target of Nazi air raids from 1941-1942. Earlier in the week 3 buried shells were found near a railway-car repaire plant.

Archaeological excavations are ongoing at the Kremlin, revealing the different methods of construction through the buildings history. The first parts of the Kremlin were constructed in the mid 12th. The red version most recognized today was completed in 1495. It is very likely that additional interesting artifacts will be uncovered.
