Collection of archaeology

The collection of archaeology of the Kirillo-Belozersky museum-reserve contains more than 12 thousand exhibits from the Mesolithic and Early Neolithic periods (9000-6000 BC) to the 17th century. They were found on the territory of four modern districts of the Vologda Region: Kirillov, Belozersk, Vashki and Vologda districts.

The most interesting finds come from the often mentioned in the chronicles town Belozersk, multi-layer sites of the archaeological complex Minino, settlements and cemeteries on the Slavensky portage, Kemsky necropolis and cultural layer of the Kirillo-Belozersky monastery.

The main part of the collection represents numismatic material, jewellery and details of the costume, glass and stone necklaces, fragments of Byzantine glass vessels, festive belt-sets, amber decorations, household objects, arms, building material, ceramics.
