Ancient Burial Ground Discovered Near Krasnodar

In Krasnodar builders cannot start reconstruction of the highway between Krasnodar and the Yelizavetinskaya Village.

At present archeologists are working there, disturbed by numerous gapers.

Right under the road an ancient cemetery has been found. The burial ground, scientists assume, belonged to the Maeotae civilization. Archeologists have already opened some graves and found jewelry dated to the 1st century AC.

Scientists are not going to break down the already existing highway. Under the contract with road services they investigate only roadsides. These are the so-called salvage works. All the finds including bones of people and animals, ornaments, ceramics and weapons will be withdrawn and sent to a laboratory, and afterwards this site of the route will be given over for road construction works.
