Finno-Ugric Burial Mound of 10th Century Discovered by Local Dwellers

Local residents of the Urvanovo Village, Melenki District of the Vladimir Region, have found a Finno-Ugric burial place of the 10th century.
      The thousand-year-old burial place was discovered just on the shoulder of an asphalt road... In spring a water pipe was broken here and while trying to eliminate the leak, the house inhabitants came across the ancient ornaments. Next day the find put in a box was brought to the Melenki Museum of Local Lore.
      The bracelets, rings, pendants, and a breast metal plate speak for the fact that the burial was that of a woman, and judging by the quantity of ornaments, the woman was already not so young and rather well-off.
      The ornaments will be stored in the Melenki Museum of Local Lore. The skeleton bones have not remained, whereas the thin ornaments made of bone seem almost new after a thousand years.
      Now the roadside is being investigated by the Vladimir archeologists.
