Treasure-Filled Warrior's Grave Found in Russia
Hidden in a necropolis situated high in the mountains of the Caucasus in Russia, researchers have discovered the grave of a male warrior laid to rest with gold jewelry, iron chain mail and numerous weapons, including a 36-inch iron sword set between his legs.

That is just one amazing find among a wealth of ancient treasures dating back more than 2,000 years that scientists have uncovered there.

Who used the necropolis?
Based on the artifacts, researchers believe the warrior's burial dates back around 2,200 years, to a time when Greek culture was popular in west Asia, while the necropolis itself appears to have been in use between the third century B.C. and the beginning of the second century A.D.

Researchers were careful to note that the artifacts cannot be linked to a specific archaeological culture. Mordvintseva points out that "this region is very big, and not sufficiently excavated," particularly in the area where the necropolis is located. "(I)t is situated high in mountains. Perhaps the population of this area (had) trade routes/passes with Caucasian countries — Georgia, Armenia etc.," Mordvintseva writes in the email.

The date they give puts him in the time China was building the great wall against Mongol nomadic raiders.

I would like to see a map of where this was found.

I didnt consider the time period in relation to the great wall... awesome!


but the mountains where this was found are closer to the middle east than china

I actually didnt really know much about the Caucasus mountains until now :)

That is also about 130 years after Alexander the great, Lot of very advanced cultures at the time. They won’t be able to pin point a culture from all the trading/raiding at the time. Look at the pic of the axe then realize the sword he had, two totally different technologies and cultures produced those. The fact he kept the swords in death;a weapon worth way more than gold says a lot about who he was.

Not your average swords, swords to rule with.

The two swords also included gold decorations, something the scientists had never come across before.

although that sorta style was very popular... still not your average person had them for jewelry

If the proper archeology is done... we will most certainly find this guy was more powerful and influential than thought. hopefully.
