When archaeologists performed a routine check on a construction site in central Kyiv in late February, they were astonished to discover a medieval street hidden seven meters underground. The remains of the wooden buildings that date back to Kyivan Rus were found at the mall construction site at Poshtova Square in the Podil neighborhood near the Dnipro River.

      Thanks for posting that information. I love learning about this type of stuff.

      I believe there's a failed Viking settlement in Newfoundland that is the oldest European settlement in NA.
