Archeologists have uncovered barrows, which are about a thousand years old, on the bank of Lake Uyelga in Kunashak District (Chelyabinsk Region).
      
      They found there rich burial places of ancient nomads, who were ancestors of Khasars, Black Sea Bulgarians, Danube Magyars and Hungarians.
      
      Unfortunately, a part of the burials was plundered several centuries ago. But the scientists also managed to make surprising finds: womens and mens ornaments, elements of horse harness, arrowheads, sabres, knives, ceramic vessels. All these give evidence to the noble origin of the people buried there.
      
      The burial ground consists of two layers: the bottom one dates back to the 9th century, and the upper one to the 10th-11th centuries - doctor of historical sciences, professor Sergey Botalov tells.
      
      The material found in the bottom part is with 100 percent accuracy congruent with finds of the Karpatsky Hollow in Hungary. It tells about a possible attribute of the burial ground to Magyar culture.
