Medieval graves found in Siberia

Siberian archeologists are working to excavate a medieval cemetery, dating to the 11th century, near the River Angara in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. Over 10,000 items such as jewelry, pottery and tools have been found.

“The significance of the discovery is that this is a complex of graves rather than individual graves that were discovered earlier,” says Pavel Mandryka. “This is an entire cemetery, either clan or patrimonial. It shows how cultural ties and contacts changed,” Pavel Mandryka said.
