Rare Ring Found in Archeological Excavations on Yamal

1st century AD ring has been found by a student of the Novosibirsk State University in the course of excavations in the ancient sanctuary of Ust'-Poluy.

      The bronze ring of small size has a picture of a bear’s head and paws.

      “The ring was probably put on a killed bear’s claw, the way it is still done by the northern ethnic groups during celebrations of the Bear holiday”, - Alexander Korchagin, who has fond the ring, explains. According to him, the sanctuary, where there was found, had belonged to ancestors of Nenets, Khanty and Selkups peoples.

      Along with the ring the archeologists have found a hollow pendant with the image of a marten animal and a knife handle with a zoomorphic pommel. All the items are made of high-quality bronze.

      Excavation works in the Ust-Poluy sanctuary are carried out by the Yamal-Nenets Scientific Center for Arctic Studies, and the archeological finds will remain in its museum.
