In Kabardino-Balkaria near the village Zaykova found a unique Cimmerian necropolis. Local historians Maria and Victor Kotlyarov, who discovered the ancient burial ground report that the disposal is subjected to barbarous plunder.
“An area of about four hundred square meters excavated. The earth mixed with human bones. Around hundreds of items recovered from the graves: copper, covered with green patina, buttons, pins, bracelets, remains of helmets, iron, corroded lugs peak, a variety of vessels – cups, jugs, bowls, damaged during the excavation”, – told the “Caucasian knot” ethnographer Viktor Kotlyarov.
These items are of great value to science, however, not touched by the vandals, as partially damaged during excavation. Now consumer demand for the artifacts fell as “black” archaeological market at the same time thrown a huge amount of rare finds, says local historian.
“The burial ground could shed light on the history not only of Cimmerian but also the whole Caucasus. After all, everything else, is tiered cemetery: burials continued here for many centuries – in the bottom row buried by the Cimmerians, then Scythians, then drugmetformin,” says Kotlyar.
Looted next to the necropolis is another, still untouched, therefore, the authorities of Kabardino-Balkaria should take urgent measures to save it for science, I’m sure the ethnographer.
Meanwhile, what is this necropolis belongs to the Cimmerian period in ancient history indicate typical findings. For example the helmets, which fully correspond to those, which are depicted in these nomadic conquerors on Etruscan vases, the researchers note. They already called the find in the mountains of Kabardino-Balkaria sensation.

Here, for example, a dozen major findings, which were made by the archaeologists in 2015.
The new monument, found just a few kilometers from Stonehenge, was one of the most impressive finds of this year.
