Teenagers who lived 4,000 years ago were found buried opposite each other in a remarkable tomb in Kazakhstan.
The old couple is supposed to be 16 or 17 years old when they died and archaeologists say there is probably a & # 39; noble family & # 39; in their culture.
It is not clear whether they were brothers or sisters or lovers, but the prehistoric couple were buried and stared at each other for their journey to the hereafter.
Experts have yet to figure out how they died, but there are plans to investigate the remains to find out.
Embrace: The remains of the teenage couple depicted at an old funeral complex called Kyzyltau Cemetery – in the remote Karaganda region of Kazakhstan
The young people were found in an old burial complex called Kyzyltau Cemetery, which consists of five hills in the remote Karaganda region.
Gold and bronze treasures were found in their grave and the young woman wore two bracelets on each arm, as well as pendants depicting the sun.
She also wore precious gold temple rings in the form of earrings, archaeologists say.
& # 39; The man and the woman face each other & # 39 ;, said archaeologist Igor Kukushkin. Most likely the newly discovered young couple belonged to the noble family.
& # 39; The grave is rich. The young woman has two bracelets on each arm with spiral ends and round solar pendants with ornaments.
& # 39; It is significant that he was wearing golden temple rings. & # 39;
The couple from the Bronze Age is probably around 16 or 17 years old, reported Tengrinews.
Face-to-face: the prehistoric duo, more than 4,000 years old, were buried and stared at each other for their journey to the afterlife
Rich tomb: gold and bronze treasures were found in their grave. The young woman wore two bracelets on each arm and sun pendants
The tomb of a suspected priestess from the ancient Alakul culture was found in the area.
& # 39; This woman was buried with seven pots, ashes and a skull, & # 39; said Kukushkin.
& # 39; Her grave was not robbed (by later generations), although many neighboring graves were looted.
& # 39; Maybe something here has driven them away. Seven pots is an unusual number. She was most likely a priestess. & # 39;
Excavating the site: archaeologists have not determined how the young people died, but there are plans to investigate the remains
Excavation: archaeological investigation that takes place in the Shetsky district of Kazakhstan, which appears to be a rich site for ancient relics – especially of wealthy families
History: In Soviet times, Karaganda was nicknamed & # 39; middle of nowhere & # 39; and it was a destination for political exiles from many parts of the former USSR
WHAT ELSE IS FOUND IN THE KARAGANDA REGION?
The Karaganda region of Kazakhstan appears to be rich in excavations.
The latest find comes just a year after a 5000-year-old grave was found in the same region – with a few buried near the grave of two horses carrying a & # 39; chariot & # 39; into life from the Bronze Age.
The prehistoric lovers lie close together on their side, the man armed with a quiver of arrows and a metal dagger.
His partner wore jewelry, including green bracelets made from semi-precious stones.
The similarity of a chariot pulled by the two trained horses – believed to have been sacrificed for the funeral – was also the grave of another similar pair, archaeologists say.
Meanwhile, in August 2015, archaeologists found a previously unknown Egyptian-style pyramid.
The structure is now largely in ruins, but it is believed to have been a lookalike of the famous Pyramid of Djoser in Egypt, and was built around 1000 years earlier.
The discovery was made by specialists from the Saryarkinsky Archeology Institute in Karaganda led by Igor Kukushkin.
In the Soviet era, Karaganda was nicknamed & # 39; middle of nowhere & # 39; and it was a destination for political exiles from many parts of the former USSR.
But the discovery of the pyramid shows that a rich culture flourished here in the deep past
