An early Neolithic burial place has been discovered in the Ulyanovsk region on the Volga, southeast of European Russia. Archaeologists found a skeleton apparently of a young woman who, in their estimate, lived in the 8th millennium BC.
The age will be defined more precisely by the radio-carbonic method in St Petersburg.
As RIA Novosti knows from Alexander Viskalin, who leads the expedition, the skeleton lacks the skull, the fact that suggests a ritual to bury heads separately from bodies.
Local school and university students who are fond of history worked alongside professional archaeologists as part of a project sponsored by the youth committee of Ylyanovsk's Mayor's Office.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
