Russian horse tomb stumps archaeologists

The discovery of a 14th century tomb at Staraya Russa holding the remains of 14 horses puzzles archaeologists. The experts feel the site was not used for slaughter or rituals, but have no other explanation for the mass grave.

“This is not consequence of murrain; because horses were buried in this place throughout 80 years; and it does not look like slaughterhouse or ritual place either. In short, we need some time to find a proper explanation for this discovery,” archaeologist Elena Toropova said.
