Medieval child burial uncovered in Russia

Published on August 31st, 2017 | by admin


A medieval burial containing the remains of a child has been found in northern Russia.

‘We can definitely say that this child was not ordinary,’ he said. ‘He or she was from some wealthy family, judging by the things laid in the grave. The parents could afford quite expensive things, especially the bowl – it was imported.’

Fragments of fur clothes or animal skins along with a ceramic vessel were also preserved in the grave which was not found in a burial ground. The blade of a knife in the tundra grave does not survive, but its handle and sheath are elaborately decorated in a zoomorphic pattern.

A small temple ring was also found.
