Ancient child burial site found in Siberia
An ancient child burial site dating back to the Stone Age has been discovered in the Altai Region, Siberia. Excavations carried out by a local archaeological association led by scientist Yuri Gelmel near the town of Slavgorod also resulted in the discovery of a knife which supposedly belonged to Scythian-era nomads. Among other findings was an earthenware pot, a necessary funeral attribute. Once, this hill housed an ancient nomad cemetery.
