Archeologists Look for Yermak's Grave in Tyumen Region

Archeologists from cities of the Ural and Siberian federal districts are searching the grave of Yermak, the conqueror of Siberia in the Vagai District of the Tyumen Region.  

Unlike the previous expeditions, which were great in number, the archeological excavations are carried not in the place described in the ancient chronicle as Yermak’s burial, but at the 20 km distance away from it, on the bank of River Irtysh.  It was there where the Cossack ataman Yermak brought off last battle to the army of Kuchum Khan near Tobolsk.  

Archeologists plan to dig over 2 thousand square meters and complete the excavation by the middle of September. So far they have unearthed a few objects; in particular, medieval ceramics splinters, as well as artifacts of the 17th century: a sewed-on patch, a coin fragment, and one of the dice. 

It is assumed that the legendary Cossack leader Yermak perished on August 6, 1585.
