Excavations of Another Arkaim to Start in Chelyabinsk Region in 2013

Following results of the first expedition in the precincts of the Solntse (The Sun) Village in the Chelyabinsk region foreign archeologists ascertain that highly cultural people lived there in the Bronze Age.
      Now archeologists are going to find out about their living conditions and where the ancient civilization got ore from.
      It has come to light that four thousand years ago the area was settled by the same people that lived in the famous and mysterious Arkaim. According to researchers, it became a place of the revolution in ancient metallurgy: the ancestors used tin bronze, though in other places this material became known much later. And the mystery of where the villagers took tin ore still remains unsolved.
      Researchers from the Chelyabinsk Pedagogical University have been studying the Solntse Settlement (the Varnensky District of the Chelyabinsk Region) and its vicinities since 1984.
      Excavation works expected to find out if there were ore mines and where the tin came from will be started as soon as 2013. Quite possibly the site of the ancient settlement will become the second Arkaim.
