During the replacement of damp course around Kirill Church, archaeologists excavated ancient foundations. Researchers determine that these are foundations of the temple’s annexes. They are dated to 12th, 17th and 18th centuries. Besides, ancient burial places were found not far away.

Irene Margolina, Kirill Church researcher, says that the excavated foundations have no particular value, but the discovery have pushed to more detailed research of the historical building.

Tourists will not see the ancient remains, as the archaeological dig has been filled up with sand immediately after examination. Scientists decided to conserve it as Ukrainian climate can destroy the bricks.

The conservation can not last too long, but to exhibit the foundation of 12th century is necessary to place it in vacuum sphere. Unfortunately, Ukrainian museums have not enough money and necessary technology.
