Among the artifacts discovered there were children's toys, household items, luggage, jewelry, dishes, rare coins, buttons and lipstick containers, all of which are now undergoing restoration.

As mentioned on the site, among the finds were also a silver coin worth ten kopecks (the small coin) dating back to 1789, crosses made of non-ferrous metals, smoking pipes, various coins, buttons, lead wads, a bone comb, a porcelain doll, and an ashtray.

In addition, experts restored a fairly large plate with floral decorations, and leather shoes dating back to the 19th century.

It is noteworthy that over the past 12 years, the archaeological funds in the capital have been replenished with 100,000 artifacts. “All of these artifacts reflect the history of the Russian capital and tell about the lives and traditions of entire generations of Muscovites,” the website concluded.
