Remnants of Medieval city gate discovered in Estonian Parnu

Construction workers and archaeologists digging at the future site of Parnu's history museum have unearthed remnants of a city gate, expected to date from the 13th or 14th century, informs ERR/LETA.

The workers discovered the gate's oak foundations and pillars, as well as a wooden walkway, during drainage works at the location.
