The tomb was found on the left side of Zerafshan river near Penjikent as result of building work and partly destroyed. The burial contains the human body placed on the left side and the skeleton of pet (ram). Among the burial goods were three bronze vessels, three wheel – made pottery vessels, bronze dagger and knife and some ornaments. The bone horse bits are identical with material from some monuments of South Ural (Sintashta and others). The unique object is the bronze pin headed by horse figurine. Wheel – made vessels belong to Jarkutan stage of Sappaly culture in South Uzbekistan and dated 1700 – 1500 B.C. The artefacts from this tomb present the combination of objects from south urban culture and cultural traditions of steppe.
