Burial of Mongol Yoke Period Discovered in Vladimir
Batu Khan

Remains of people, who presumably perished during inroad of Mongol leader Batu Khan on Vladimir, were found yesterday not far from the well-known Golden Gates of Vladimir.
      For almost eight centuries the remains had been lying in the ground unknown. According to the Chief Architect of Vladimir Archeological Centre Tatiana Mukhina, five skeletons were found.
      The experts assume it was an Old Russian burial, judging by ceramics that was discovered during clearing of the mortal remains. The earthen ware probably can be dated to the early 13th century. All of them perished during one of the Mongol forays, most probably in fire.
      Exact reason for their death and their gender is still to be ascertained by scientists. The expertise will be carried out by Moscow Archeology Institute. Following this, the remains will be committed to the earth.
