Unique items unearthed in burial mounds in Orenburg
Archaeologists have found household appliances and weapons of the Sarmat epoch (4th century BCE) in the area of the Filippovsky burial mounds in the Orenburg region (one of the former Soviet Union provinces). The archaeologists found bronze items, including a boiler with animal-style handles, a brazier, mirrors and cosmetic vessels, Central Asian ceramic dishes, quivers, daggers and cuirass fragments. The origin of some finds is still unknown, the source said. The expedition led by Doctor of History Leonid Yablonsky from the Russian Academy of Sciences' Archaeology Institute, also found medieval tombs in one of the mounds.
