Unique Ancient Tomb Found in Novosibirsk
Medieval ornaments from Siberia

Novosibirsk archeologists have found about a hundred artifacts: female ornaments – rings, bracelets, earrings, and medieval Iranian coins, silk and ceramics in a collective tomb of the early Middle Ages in Kudryashevsky Forest.

In a barrow with an ordinary grave, where only two arrowheads and a bronze plaque were found, archeologists discovered a wooden crypt. Inside of it there were several groups of charred remains and a large number of women’s and children's ornaments dated to the 9th century AD. There are no skeletons in this sepulcher: the dead bodies were burnt somewhere else and only the charred remains were buried in the crypt. Such a ritual remained in this area only for about 100-150 years, and then disappeared from funeral practice.

Among the bronze ornaments there are samples of the Scythian-Siberian animal style, as well as a full set of “a medieval woman of fashion”: surprisingly fine bracelets, earrings, rings, and a bronze mirror. Silver Iranian medieval coins were used by ancient Siberian women as ornaments, too.

Archeologists hope to unearth there more interesting finds to get a better picture of the outlook and funeral rituals of medieval Siberians.
