Sochi Construction Re-Discovers Archaeological Site

An 8th century archaeological site in Russia that was discovered in the 1950s and then lost again has been re-discovered during the massive construction and preparation for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

When the Imereti lowland was chosen as a construction site for future Olympic venues for the Sochi Winter games in 2014, almost every corner was carefully surveyed and that's when this part of history was rediscovered.
