“Mounds with undisturbed burials are extremely rare to find,” Natalia Solovyova, a deputy director of the Institute for the History of Material Culture of the Russian Academy of Sciences, told ITAR-TASS. “As a rule, the bulk of burial mounds were plundered back in the old times.”
The mound, according to Solovyova, is a roundish stone structure measuring six metres in diameter. The burial had cremains of a warrior. Cremation of the dead was typical nomadic Kyrgyz tribes.
“The finding is unique because we a single small mound yielded so much new informations,” she said.
After specialists study and conserve these artefacts, they will be handed over to a museum.
