Enigmatic Horse Entombment Discovered in Staraya Russa

Archeologists have found a mysterious 13th century entombment of horses at excavation in Staraya Russa town of the Novgorod Region.
      In the course of the field season of 2008 we have discovered skulls and other bones of 14 horses buried in the cultural layer of the second half of the 14th century, Head of the excavation Elena Toropova informed.
      According to the archeologist so far there is no version that would explain this unusual find.
      This is not consequence of murrain; because horses were buried in this place throughout 80 years; and it does not look like slaughterhouse or ritual place either. In short, we need some time to find a proper explanation for this discovery - Elena Toropova pointed out.
      Of all the numerous finds of the current season in Staraya Russa archeologists mark out a 200-gram and 17-centimeter silver grivna (medieval cash in Old Rus), which has become the first suchlike find for archeologists in Staraya Russa. Silver bars of the kind were used in the Middle Ages for completing big sales.
