Unusually posed burial found in Russia

The remains of a man buried in what appears to resemble a dance pose has been found in Russia’s Far East.

The ancient skeleton surprised archeologists because he appeared to be dancing when his grave was opened in Amur region. Archeologist Denis Volkov, 35, said: ‘We jokingly nicknamed this skeleton Mikhail.

‘He amazed us with his pose – he had been laid to rest on his back, with his legs looking as if he was dancing.

‘His feet were crossed and knees wide open. None of the known burial ceremonies include this position of a body.’
