Excavations of a burial of a Chief in the Valley of Kings (Tuva)

Excavations of an entire chain of royal burials in the Valley of Kings (Pii-Khem district, Tuva), are being conducted by archeologists of Tuvan expedition under the leadership of Candidate of historical sciences Vladimir Semyonov.

1.5 kilometers from the settlement Arzhaan, the archeologists are finishing up the excavation of an elite kurgan, with preliminary dating of 6th century before our era.

“This is a kurgan of Uyuk culture. Very few of them have been excavated so far, - explains Vladimir Semyonov. – It is a burial of a chief. I would not use the word “king”. We can speak of chiefs, but not kings. It was a chiefdom.”
