French archaeologists have joined the study of historical monuments of the Far East

French archaeologists have again joined the study of the historical monuments of the Amur region within the framework of the "Albazin expedition" this year. This was reported in a press release from the Petropavlovsk Foundation, which is one of the initiators and organizers of the expedition.

Archaeological volunteers from France: South Bade and Damian le Devede joined the study of the monument of federal importance "Gorodische" Albazin fortress "from the end of July. South Bade earlier participated in the excavations of Albazinsky prison in 2012, and now returned again. Then, together with Julien Gio, they worked actively on excavations, shared with the expedition members the experience of the Western European method of archaeological works. Both French archaeologists immediately began to work actively at the excavation site, where they already began to extract the first remains of the defenders of the prison.

Albazinsky prison was the largest fortified settlement of Russian pioneers on the Amur River in the second half of the 17th century. He was twice besieged by the Manchu troops and was abandoned after the signing of the Treaty of Nerchinsk with The Qing Empire. A detailed study of the Albazinsky prison will not only enrich the history of the Amur Region, but also affect the general understanding of the appearance and lifestyle of the pioneers and explorers of the distant frontiers of Russia.
