most.rf Archaeologists discovered a head of the ancient Greek God during underwater construction operations of the Crimean Bridge, according to Lenta.ru.

Research fellow of the Institute of Archaeology of Russian Academy of Sciences Sergei Olkhovsky has commented that the found terracotta god’s head is a unique artifact of the Northern Black Sea Region, as scientists have never discovered anything like this before. Supposedly, the sculpture dates back 5 Century B.C. It could be made in Minor Asia. However, more about the date of its origin can be said after the expertise by specialists of ancient Greek art and additional research work.

All findings from the bottom of the Azov and Black Seas were collected in the exposition The Crimean Bridge. Fantastic Reality. At present, more than 60 hundred artifacts of ancient and later cultures are discovered by builders and archaeologists.

Aviatresses 15.01.2019
For Russian women who pioneered aviation, everything started in 1911. The skies virus used to penetrate their hearts through various paths. In some cases it came along with love. A general’s daughter. A duchess by her husband’s right, who belonged to the Rurik dynasty. A professional actress. A genteel and well educated lady. A princess by birth. An Odessa native with millionaire uncle of Italian origin. And a lady of incomprehensible origin. In the early 20th century such girls and ladies were known as Aviatresses. Though they dubbed themselves as “air wanderesses”.
A large-scale educational event Total Dictation is going to take place on April 13, 2019. Hundreds of thousands of people in Russia and abroad are going to test their literacy.

It was created specifically for those who study Russian as a foreign language, bilingual children, their parents and all those who are not yet fluent in Russian.
