Scythian Entombment Discovered in Lipetsk Region

In the Lipetsk Region (centre of the European part of Russia) archeologists have discovered Scythian era tombs dating back to the 5th century B.C.
      Fragments of clothes and a bronze clasp have been found in women's graves and bone and iron spearheads in men's ones. Several thousand ceramic pieces have been unearthed on the area of former constructions.
      This settlement and entombments turned to be the most ancient on the digging site, the local fund of regional studies informed. Before that the earliest was considered the Huns' entombment dated to the 5th century AD and the time of the great migration of peoples.
