Archaeological work was carried out on the territory of the mound "The Prayerful Sands", located in the Astrakhan region. The remains of a child, who is about 4,000 years old, were discovered.

According to experts, the boy was lying in the fetal position, which indicated his high social status. The grave dates back to II millennium BC.

Archaeologists shared a picture in one of the social networks, where they wrote that, together with a teenager, they found a set of altars (carved bones for games) and ceramic dishes. The finding is attributed to the Srubna culture of the Bronze Age.

Srubna culture, archaeological culture of the developed Bronze Age, common in the steppe and forest-steppe zones of the European part of the USSR.

It is represented by settlements, kurgan cemeteries, metal items, as well as molds and metalworking tools. Marked by V. Gorodtsov in 1901 and named for the characteristic log structures in the graves.
