Unique burial dated by the Х-ХI found near Mogilev

The unique burial dated by the Х-ХI was found by archeologists near Mogilev. The information is provided the chief of the Archeology and Special History Branches, the doctor of History Igor Marzalyuk.

The archeological excavations near Mogilev revealed the female burial dated by the Х-ХI. The findings – a silver temporal ring, the Byzantine beads made of blue glass, a cross-shaped pendant, and remains of a leather coat – prove the fact that a female representative of the noble krivichi clan was buried here.

Igor Marzalyuk says that it is the first burial with such a rich artifacts collection in Mogilev. The team of Mogilev’s archeologists has also found the remains of the wooden bucket. The bucket had been put in the grave by the feet of the buried girl. The spot of the land where the girl was buried had been burnt-over, covered with sand and fenced around with stones.

According to Igor Marzalyuk, culturally and historically the findings are really valuable. They are of great importance in tracing paganism transformation. The findings reveal us the way of how our ancestry lived and died. They also help to define the borders of the krivichi’s settlement pattern on the territory of Mogilev region which in the Middle Ages was also inhabited by the dregovichi and radimichi.

Igor Marzalyuk says that spring and summer will continue the archeological excavations which will definitely enrich the archeological laboratory of Mogilev State Kuleshov University.
