Russian archaeologists have discovered two Scythian burial mounds outside of the village of Krasny Ya. Local farmers’ ploughing activities had rendered the mounds nearly invisible making their discovery fortuitous. Excavations of one of the mounds revealed the remains of a Scythian warrior buried beneath his horse. This grave produced a number of interesting finds including the warrior’s sword, belt and gold foil believed to have been part of the warrior’s clothing.
