Archeological and geographical expedition "Tunnug"
Since 2018, the Russian Geographical Society and the Institute of the History of Material Culture of the Russian Academy of Sciences have been studying the Tunnug Kurgan located in Tuva. It is part of the Valley of the Kings, where are many kurgans of the nobility of the Scythian time. The first season showed that the burial ground is the oldest of all discovered, it belongs to the IX century BC.
There is a high probability of finding preserved organic matter and various artifacts under the rock mound due to the fact that the Tunnug Kurgan is located in the permafrost.
