Children Discover Ancient Dolmens in Krasnodar Territory

Small children in Krasnodar Territory have happened to come across a find, which can become a true archaeological sensation.
      They found an intact non- plundered dolmen in the tideway of the River Shepsi. The burial is of special interest for scientists. The childrens attention was attracted by a large stone plate. While clearing it from silt the children dug out an unusual construction.
      I didn't know that it is a dolmen. I was sitting on it and molding toys, - says Samira Kosyan.
      Just a couple of days ago the dolmen was not visible from under the water. But after the water fell down the river bed has become bared. The objects found inside the dolmen are unusual. For example, historians are yet to find out the purpose of a stone sphere kept there. Besides, experts should establish whose remains are kept in the tomb.
