The Detinets ("Young Man's Compound," from the same root as the Russian word deti = children) is the ancient name for the Kremlin or fortress in Novgorod the Great, which stands on the left bank of the Volkhov River about two miles north of where it empties out of Lake Ilmen.

The Detinets (“Young Man’s Compound,” from the same root as the Russian word deti = children) is the ancient name for the Kremlin or fortress in Novgorod the Great, which stands on the left bank of the Volkhov River about two miles north of where it empties out of Lake Ilmen.

The first reference to fortifications on the site dates to 1044, with additional construction taking place in 1116. These were probably earthen embankments topped by a wooden palisade, although stone towers and walls were built in 1302.
