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.
