Unique Archeological Monuments Found in Tyva

Unique finds dating to little-studied periods in the history of Southern Siberia and the Central Asia have been unearthed in a field camp near Kyzyl, on the site allotted for the future railway Kyzyl – Kuragino.
       In one of the barrows archeologists have found a tomb of a young man with an accompanying gift of a horse hide and a ram hulk, and in another one there were two fighting daggers and two axes that are preliminary dated to the late centuries B.C.
       Among the finds there is also a pendant carved from a horn in the form of a deer’s hoof. “The artifact is of high artistic level, making it possible to level it with the best samples of Scythian animal style. It is a unique item for the entire territory of Eurasia”— archeologist Yury Khudyakov ascertained.
