Bronze Age girl buried with more than 150 animal ankle bones, potentially to help her to the next world


The burial mound of a Bronze Age girl unearthed in Kazakhstan contains a plethora of grave goods, including dozens of animal bones that may have been used for ceremonial purposes and a carving of a frog on a bronze disc.

Since 2017, researchers have been working at this site, located in Ainabulak (also spelled Aynabulaq or Aina-bulak), a village in the eastern part of the country. Since then, they’ve discovered more than 100 burial mounds dating to the Bronze Age, including this one, which they found on Aug. 2, according to The Astana Times, an English-language news outlet in Kazakhstan.
