    Branicki Palace has rediscovered its secrets. Archaeological works carried out by a team led by archaeologist Lech Pawlata have finished in the palace garden.

    Field work was carried out at the request of the Municipal Office in Białystok in connection with the disclosure of fragments of the former garden balustrade and other palace architectural elements lying in the garden alleys. This fact was reported by employees of the Museum of the History of Medicine and Pharmacy of the Medical University of Bialystok. The works were carried out in 3 trenches. Several original, decorated elements of a stone balustrade and pilaster finials from the palace facade were excavated, as well as fragments of ceramics and a palace stove tile.

    The owner of the gardens is the city of Białystok. After obtaining a decision from the Podlasie Voivodship Conservator of Monuments in Białystok, the architectural monuments will be transferred to the Museum of the History of Medicine and Pharmacy of the Medical University in Bialystok.

    They will enrich the latest exhibition devoted to the history of the University's headquarters - Branicki Palace, located in the palace cellars.
