Archeologists Explore Burial Ground of Murom Tribes

Archeologists carry out excavations in Podbolotyevsky burial ground in the Vladimir Region.

The archeological funeral monument was found at the end of the 20th century. Within 3 years of excavations the experts have found nearly 7000 artifacts, from jewelry to weaponry.

These are hundreds of graves of the Finno-Ugric tribe of Murom that lived downstream River Oka from the 10th century and was engaged in hunting, crafts and agriculture. For the last three years scientists examined 181 graves and 20 more are being studied at present.

Every grave is unique. For example, one of them kept remains of an adult man with a spear, an axe, a knife, and an ice pick. Women’s graves harbor various jewelry mostly made of bronze, including bracelets, rings, and pendants with claws of ducks considered sacred.

The unearthed finds will be handed over to the Murom Museum, and the State History Museum.
