Unique Archeological Find Unearthed in Suzdal

Archeologists have uncovered a unique funerary monument of the first millennium AD on the territory of Opolye, Suzdal.
      
      The discovery of this Finno-Ugric burial ground is a real event for archeologists. In the excavation around 300 square meters large there have been unearthed 11 tombs that make it possible to reveal the earlier unknown facts of ancient history.
      
      The monument dating back to the 3rd-4th centuries has kept Finnish jewelry and is evidence of a rich militarized society, where cattle breeding played an important role. All entombments are located in a row. Judging by their size at least four of them are children burials.
      
      The find near the village of Shekshovo is a result of eight years of examining the lands of Suzdal Opolye. Of special interest are bronze decorations; remains of complex headwear with pendants and temporal rings, neck rings, openwork fibula fasteners and spiral bracelets.
