The burial ground found in Gorokhovets increases the chances of the city to get on the UNESCO list
According to the scientist, the Finnish burial grounds of the first and second centuries are very rare, and these are the first found in the lower reaches of the river Klyazma. Makarov blieves that the discovery makes Gorokhovets more appealing as a tourist destination and therefore more likely to be included to the UNESCO World Heritage List, because there are no such objects in other historical cities of North-Eastern Russia.
The earthen burial ground was discovered in the summer of 2017 in Lenin Square in the centre of Gorokhovets. Scientists have investigated three burials in which were found, in particular, a celt (a long, thin tool resembling an axe), a spearhead, iron ringed bits, iron knives and buckles, as well as two fibulas made of non-ferrous metal.
