Unique Grave of Sarmatian Soldier Found in Stavropol Territory

Stavropol archeologists have discovered a unique funeral barrow of a Sarmatian soldier in the Tonnelny Settlement.

      The burial is dated to the 3rd century B.C. Scientists assume that it is a grave of a notable and rich soldier.

      Graves of Sarmatians were found in Stavropol Territory even before. But the present find is very much different from the previous ones. The only burial of such value was found 14 years ago in Ipatovo village.

      Researchers are yet to discover the exact age of these remains and scrupulously study the bones, weapons and household belongings of the ancient soldier. Later the Sarmatian soldier will become a museum piece.
