In the spring of 2015, a new cremation cemetery was discovered. The site is located on the Cape Ristiniemi (North-Western shore of the Ladoga Lake, Republic of Karelia). Three coins with signs of secondary use were found among jewelry and weapons dating from the 11th century. They are a miliaresion of Emperors Basil II and Constantine VIII (976—1025), a penny of Knut the Great (976—1029) and a previously unknown type of Kufic dirham. The last coin dates to the time of revolt against the Abbasid (?), during the reign of Caliph al-Hadi, minted by Medina mint (?) in 16 (?)9 Hijri year with the name of Ali bin Ja’far. The features of the arrangement of the lugs and holes in the coins allowed to reconstruct their positions in funerary headdress and assume a possibility for presence of a multi-row necklace in it.

Keywords: North-Western lake Ladoga area, 11th century, burials, coins, secondary use, necklace.
