Ancient Graves of Sind Soldiers Found near Anapa

Archeological excavations of an antique temple complex are carried out in the Vestnik Settlement near Anapa.

Members of the East Bosporus archaeological expedition examined a necropolis located next to the Old Greek temple of the goddess Demeter. 

Three graves dated to the 6th and 5th centuries BC have been up in the course of excavations.

An acenaces sword was found next to the buried man in one of the graves. Scientists have established that the buried men belonged to the Indo-Iranian Sind tribe that controlled this area in the antiquity. Some experts consider Sind tribe to be ancestors of the modern Adyghe people.
