Novosibirsk Archeologists Find Ancient Stone Coffin

Archeologists have found a unique burial in a stone box and a sanctuary with unknown rituals in the Kolyvan District of the Novosibirsk Region.

      The type of the burial kept in a stone box of the Late Bronze age was earlier found only in other regions of the Russian Federation. This cremation sepulcher has been found together with two ceramic pots (with a bronze knife in one of them) and remains of a cow.

      For the first time archeologists have also found in the region traces of a sanctuary of the early Iron Age; in this platform encircled with a moat the ancestors performed ritual actions with bronze items as offerings. The experts still remain uncertain about the meaning of these rituals.

      Two under-barrow graves have also been found in the burial ground: one of them turned to be almost plundered, and in the second one all skeletons have no skulls.
