Amateur Archeologist Stored Skeleton of Early Man for Half a Year

A skeleton and weapon of a man who lived in the Neolithic or Stone Age presented to Ust-Ilimsk Museum of Local Lore in the Irkutsk Region.

      The find was provided by a local citizen, who came across an ancient grave on the bank of River Angara in the autumn of 2014. He confessed to the museum staff that he had been storing the bones at home for half a year until they started mouldering.

      The donator was carrying out construction works in the territory of a boat station in Ust-Ilimsk, when he spotted the bones. When his excavator unearthed a bone, the man started digging the soil with his hands.

      The skeleton in an embryo pose was facing the east with his head to the north. A smaller skull filled with stone and bone arrowheads stood at his head. A bear paw and a large animal’s lower jaw were found near the skeleton. Therefore the museum workers assume that the early man was a hunter.
