Archeologists Show what People in 3rd Millennium BC Looked Like

Russian researchers have made busts of early people that lived in the Southern Ural Mountains in the second half of the 3rd millennium B.C.
      
      As the press-service of Chelyabinsk State University informs, several years ago a group of the universitys archeologists started working on the Ural River, by Kizilsky Settlement. According to experts studying the Bronze Age, finds of this expedition became a real sensation.
      
      A burial monument was unearthed in the flood plain of River Ural. It consisted of around thirty strongly blurred barrows 20 to 40 high. Examination of the first barrow revealed that people of a culture more ancient than cultures of Arkaim and Sintashta were buried there. It is the Yamna culture, which is over 200-300 years older than that of Arkaim.
      
      On the basis of the found skulls of a man from Arkaim necropolis and a woman from Kizilsky burial ground the anthropologists from Ufa and Samara have reconstructed their appearance in plaster busts. The busts have already arrived in Chelyabinsk. It can be said that these images convey appearance of South Ural dwellers of the second half oif the 3rd millennium B.C. with 80 per cent accuracy.
