Representatives of the news outlets managed to talk to Anna Kadieva, who is the head of the United North Caucasian Archaeological Expedition. She told that in Kabardino-Balkaria Russian archaeologists managed to find valuable exhibits. They are bronze decorations that were made about 3000 years ago. In this field season, this find from the Zayukovo-3 burial ground is considered the largest.
She said that excavations were carried out at the burial place of a young woman. In the course of their work, specialists managed to find a breastplate made of bronze. This decoration dates back to the 8th-7th centuries BC. On the woman's chest there was a necklace, which included large pendants of bells. There are bronze balls inside the bells. Also in the tomb was discovered a time of pendants in the form of birds with a dog's head. Another find was a figurine of a deer, and a similar one had already been found by archaeologists in Karachay-Cherkessia at the Terese burial ground.
The head of the expedition drew attention to the fact that a hoop-shaped ornament was part of the breastplate. Bronze plaques were also discovered, presumably previously sewn on clothes. In the burial ground, archaeologists found spiral beads that, according to experts, were sewn onto the headdress of the deceased or were woven into her hair. A large number of jewelry gives reason to believe that the woman buried here had a fairly high status in society. During her communication with reporters, Kadieva noted that the field excavation season began in June and this find with bronze decorations is currently the largest of this season.
The United North Caucasian Archaeological Expedition was formed in 2014. This expedition includes specialists from the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the State Historical Museum, and the Faculty of History of the Kabardino-Balkarian State University. Together they are engaged in excavations of the Zayukovo-3 burial ground, which is located in the Baksan region. This repository is located at an altitude of 900-1000 meters above sea level. Excavation work in this area is planned to be commissioned by the end of September 2019.
