Archaeological finds were handed over to Karaganda local history museum

The fund of Karaganda Regional Museum of Local History was replenished with archaeological finds. In total, more than 400 exhibits were handed over to the museum, most of them from the settlements of Akkezen and Abylay.

— All the exhibits from the Taldy Archaeological Reserve. Our findings mostly date back to the Bronze Age. Among them are women's jewelry in the form of bracelets, paste beads, bronze beads, whole necklaces, pendants, as well as bronze hryvnia, splints. And the most interesting — solar plaques, combined in the maxillofacial pendant. Usually such pendants consist of nine rounded bronze plaques, with a larger one in the center, all with the same ornament. All of them were transferred to the museum's fund, and in the future they can be seen at exhibitions, says Igor Kukushkin, a leading researcher at the Saryarka Archaeological Institute.
