Samara Archeologists Find 8th Century Slavic Settlement

Large-scale archeological excavations were carried out near the Zhiguli village in the north of the Samara Region this summer.

      According to historians, a settlement of the Slavs was situated here in the 7th-8th centuries.

      “This year we have found remains of a burial ground located in the area of Zhiguli site” - archeologist Dmitry Stashenkov said. – We have found and examined remains of three barrows. It became clear that people who occupied the the Zhiguli area used to burn down the dead bodies before burying them”.

      According to historians, the inhabitants of the Slavic settlement were engaged in metal processing. Other archaeological objects, which could have told more details about the life of the Slavic settlement, were destroyed in the early 20th century.
