Archaeologists find ancient artifacts of 14th century
Scientists of the North Kazakhstan region discovered ancient coins during archaeological excavations. The coins were found in burials belonging to a noble family. The minting on the coins indicates that they were cast in 1337 in the city of Saray al-Jedid during the reign of Uzbeg Khan. In addition, a silver mirror and parts of vessels ‘chigiri’ are also among the finds that date back to the period of the heyday of the Golden Horde. The latter was used as a water intake device. The excavations were carried out on the territory of the monument of Kyzyloba, which was opened last year. This is the first archaeological site that reveals the history of those times to the full extent. It is planned to turn it into a tourist center in the future.
“The portal is very well preserved, the remaining walls of the mausoleum are perfectly preserved and this will allow to completely reconstruct it in the near future. To date, a 3D model of the archaeological excavation of the building has been fully developed using satellite technology, and now at the final stage, we begin the conservation of this monument. There are still at least six or seven mausoleums to be studied in the coming years, and the next stage of work is the study of monuments of settled life,” said an archaeologist Timur Smagulov.
