Archeologists Find Unique Children's Things in Ruins of Gold Horde Capital

Astrakhan and Yoshkar Ola archeologists in the course of excavations of Sarai Batu – the capital of the Gold Horde – situated near Selitrennoe Settlement of Kharabalinsky District of the Astrakhan Region have found rare finds that once belonged to a medieval child.
       One of the finds is a tuvak, i.e. a kid’s chamber pot. The find is unique because it was found almost intact. Tuvak was inserted into a special aperture of a cradle, and was fastened to it through broad edges of the pot.
       Another thing is a small clay coin box, which evidently also belonged to a child from Gold Horde. Only small coins could fit into it. But in spite of the fact that the coin box was found almost intact, it was empty, without a single coin inside.
       The unique children's belongings were unearthed during excavations of a housing estate located not far from the steep bank of River Akhtuba.
