Archaeological researches began in Imeretinskaya lowland in 2008 in course of design and explaratory works, which preceded building of the Olympic objects. Now excavation is conducted on the area of 8 thousand sq. Meters. Members of archaeological expedition have dug out 12 monuments from bronze epoch age to the Middle Ages, and plan to dig out five more. There are thousands of finds — stone, iron, ceramic, glass and bronze. In September it is planned to start excavation of early Christian temple of VIII-X century. There was an offer to make this temple the sight of the Olympic Sochi.After the ending of works in Sochi there will be opened the exhibition of subjects, dated the period from paleolith to the Middle Ages.
