In the Caucasus mountains discovered the ancient grave of soldiers
In the highland district of the Krasnodar region, near the village of MESI, archaeologists have discovered the tomb of an ancient warrior. Despite the fact that the burial was looted in the “black” diggers necropolis, it inexplicably remained untouched…
That in the grave he slept a warrior, indicate found near the remains of two swords, forged from iron, with a length of 91 and 48 and a half inches. More a short sword, in all probability, was in the scabbard, of which there remained only decoration is the small flat brooch, inlaid with semi-precious stone agate. In the grave also was found a gold clasp, rock crystal and remains of animals – one cow, three horses and wild boar. Pets, most likely belonged to a buried warrior and the boar was a hunting trophy.
Near the graves at the necropolis, the researchers found a lot of old gold jewelry, as well as examples of ancient arms and armour.
The greatest interest from the point of view of cultural-historical importance are the fragments of two bronze helmets, one of which, judging by the preserved parts, was a depiction of curves of RAM’s horns, the other was decorated with various figures in the form of lines and zigzags.

It is possible that the people who lived in the highlands of the Caucasus more than two centuries ago, had good trade connections with the neighbouring countries, e.g. Armenia and Georgia. The local population was also strongly influenced by Greek culture, however, maintained their own traditional way of life.
