The Oldest Tomb Of A Scythian Prince Has Just Been Discovered By An Archaeologist In Siberia

The oldest known tomb of a Scythian prince has been discovered in Siberia.

In the south of Siberia in the Russian republic of Tuva an archaeologist has discovered the oldest known tomb belonging to an ancient Scythian prince, and this tomb is also reported to be the largest of its kind to be found anywhere.

Even more amazing, this find did not first come about using traditional archaeological methods such as digging and is all down to the initial use of a computer that helped to analyze satellite images of an interesting looking structural formation in the shape of a circle beside the Uyuk River.

Once the satellite images were scrutinized by archaeologist Gino Caspari, a dig was conducted last summer in which the Hermitage Museum and the Russian Academy of Sciences worked alongside Caspari to get to the bottom of this mysterious structure in Siberia which turned out to be a Scythian burial mound, or kurgan, in a region that is referred to as the “Siberian Valley of Kings,” according to Heritage Daily.
