Acheologists from Saint-Petersbourg Suggest to make an Open-Air Museum out of the Scythian Burial Mound

A press conference was held by Konstantin Chugunov, head of the archaelogical expedition from Saint-Petersbourg annually working in Tuva, and Omak Shyrap, head of the archaeological service of Tuva. They reported on last year and this year's excavations of the Pii-Khem district, which became world-renowned when an untouched burial mound of a Scythian tsar couple with 20 kg gold decorations all over their corpses was discovered. This year the grave was dated to be from the 7th century B.C.. Mr. Chugunov expressed the desire of the archaeological team to turn the mound into an open-air museum. He and his colleagues tried to restore the grave of the tsar and 5 other graves that accompany it. All of the articles extracted from the site will undergo restoration in the Hermitage (St. Petersburg) and will then be returned to the Pii-Khem Local Museum. Excavations will continue next year, but rich finds like the ones found this year should not be expected, noted Mr. Chugunov.
