Archeologists Find Unique Stone Coffin in Western Siberia

Novosibirsk researchers have carried out archeological excavations at the Birch Island site in the Kolyvan District of the Novosibirsk Region

      Scientists examine an archeology monument consisting of several layers and dating back to the Bronze Age and early Iron Age. 

      The most important find is a stone box 1.5 to 1.5 meters large – four stone walls combined into a box were closed with two granite plates from above. It is the only stone box in Western Siberia, whereas similar ones can be found in Altai. Unfortunately, this burial was plundered in the Middle Ages. 

      The bones which have remained in the burial will be investigated by anthropologists. They are to find out what ethnos the buried person belonged to and what his health condition was. Archeologists have also found a non-plundered burial of the early Bronze Age in the Kolyvan District.
