Archaeologists from the company Archeo Sever have discovered a buried embankment that used to be part of the historic town fortifications in the centre of modern day Žilina.
The research took place based on the decision of the Regional Monuments Board in Žilina after the demolition of an older block of flats was ordered.
According to the head of research Barbara Zajacová, it is an unusual and very precious discovery that confirms the existence of an embankment in the southern part of the town monument reservation.
The flats at the crossroad of R. Zaymus and Na priekope streets were being removed because of the new construction of an administrative building.
