Archeologists Found Remains of Sarmatians in Yelets

Archeologists have unexpectedly found a set of graves dated to the dawn of the Common Era in Yelets.

      Judging by the funeral ceremony traces, such as cremated remains in clay pots this is the burial ground of the Sarmatians.

      They have also come across a 14th century settlement and a number of finds. Among the rare ancient finds there is a unique reliquary cross on a chain, a lock, a quiver hook, spindle whorl, crocks and other ceramics. The excavation works will be carried on: 23 thousand square meters of ground are yet to be uncovered.
