The sources of the study include the Krasnogorskiy-1, Yazevskiy-3, Sidorovka, Isakovka-1 burial grounds. The set of vestments consisted of a silk shirt, a caftan decorated with embroidery and metal stripes, pants of coarse cloth or suede and soft leather or fabric boots with straps. Headdresses are represented by a hood and a cap with lapels. The sword and dagger were put into the hands of the deceased. Horn or iron plate armor consisted of shirt with shoulders or short waistcoats was sewn on a leather base. They were placed in the grave to the right of the deceased, along with a sword belt, a helmet, an axe or a spear that constituted a set of heavy armament.
