Scythian Tumuli Discovered at Asphalt Plant

Nine entombments of the Scythian epoch (III - II cc BC) have been discovered in the course of common excavations at a local asphalt plant in Altai Republic.
      Bones of people and domestic animals, pieces of broken crockery, fragments of harness, and bone work items have been found in the graves.
      Archeologists called in from Gorno-Altaisk city established that the burials belong in the Scythian period. The finds will be deposited in the Republic National Museum. Their detailed study will be started next year.
      The six Scythian tumuli on the area of the asphalt plant fortunately have remained undamaged and will be further examined by archeologists.
