Archaeologists have made a rare find of a number of medieval
Archaeologists have made a rare find of a number of medieval baby bottles at excavations in Veliky Novgorod, an ancient city in northwest Russia, a scientist said on Monday.

"Similar bottles are rarely found in excavations, and here we have already discovered... three of them,"

Medieval Slavs made feeding bottles by attaching leather bags to the wider part of cow horns. A baby drank the milk from a hole made on the tip of a horn.

Novgorod is one of the most ancient cities of the Eastern Slavs. It was first mentioned in the Sofia First Chronicle in 859, while the city's chronicle says by 862 it was already a major trading route between the Baltics to Byzantium.
