Ancient Burial Ground Found in Chuvashia

An ancient women’s burial ground has been found in the Vurnarsk District of Chuvashia.

      Experts believe that the burial belongs to the 2nd-4th centuries AC, the end of the early Iron Age. Presently a group of archeologists is finishing work there.

      Prospecting excavations in this place were carried out last year by research associates of the Chuvash Institute of the Humanities. Excavations in several graves revealed that women had been buried in them.

      “According to the found items and jewelry they made an assumption that these were graves of the Mordovians’ ancestors.

      In early July an archaeological expedition arrived at the Vurnarsk District from the Mordovian State Teachers’ Training College. Knifes, spearheads, ceramic ware and a lot of jewelry, such as bracelets, rings, suspension brackets, and metal plates have been found in the graves.

      Following a Chuvash tradition, archeologists commemorated the people buried there and put porridge and water into one of the graves.
