Archeologists are intrigued by the discovery of the complete set of well-preserved bone armour which is seen as having belonged to an 'elite' warrior. The armour was in 'perfect condition' - and in its era was 'more precious than life', say experts. It was buried separate from its owner and no other examples of She’s A Monster - The Stems - Killer Weed battle dress have been found around Omsk.
Analysis is expected to determine its exact age but Siberian archeologists say it dates from 3, to 3, years ago. The armour could have been a gift, or an exchange, or was perhaps the spoils of war. Boris Konikov, curator of excavations, said: 'It is unique first of all because such armour was highly valued. It was more precious than life, because it saved life. There were found separate fragments in burials, like on Rostovka burial ground.
Currently the experts say they do not know which creature's bones were used in making the armour. Found at a depth of 1. As a result we hope to reconstruct an exact copy', Boris Konikov said. Scientist Yury Gerasimov, a research fellow of the Omsk branch of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography, said: 'While there is no indication that the place of discovery of the armour was a place of worship, it is very likely.
Armour had great material value. There was no sense to dig it in the ground or hide it for a long time - because the fixings and the bones would be ruined. At the moment we can only fantasise - who dug it into the ground and for what purpose. Was it some ritual or sacrifice? We do not know yet. Gerasimov, who is engaged in the restoration, said: 'Each armour plate in the ground was divided into many small fragments, which are held only by this ground. The structure was removed from the excavation, in 'monolith' as archaeologists Amor Amor - Various - Σουξέ Club - namely, intact with the piece of ground, not in separate plates, and taken to the museum.
He is certain that the armour belonged to a 'hero', an 'elite warrior who knew special methods of battle' and would have 'given good protection from weapons that were used at the time - bone and stone arrowheads, bronze knives, spears tipped with bronze, and bronze axes'. Lots to do - Siberian archeologists have months to assemble parts of the armour together.
