Bone Armor Found by Archeologists in Siberia

Russian archeologists have unearthed bone armor in a Bronze Age grave found in Siberia.

      That is the type of armor similar to the one worn by the character Lord of Bones in the series of epic fantasy novels A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin.

      The find is from 3500 to 3900 years old. The armor was buried without its owner at the depth of one and a half meters, on the bank of River Irtysh near Omsk.

      Presently the researchers examine the find to establish the bones of which animals were used for making the protective clothing. Meanwhile they assume these are elk, deer and horse bones.

      Restoration works for reconstruction of the exact appearance of the armor are also carried out now. The fragments of bone plates were carefully taken out of the ground and delivered to the laboratory. After cleaning they will be recombined and that is a long and laborious process.
