|Archaeologists working in Siberia have discovered an undisturbed ancient kurgan—a tomb of a Scythian prince. The tomb appears to be both the oldest and largest of its kind ever recorded in southern Siberia. The tomb, Tunnug 1, lies in a southern Siberian swamp that's part of the Russian republic of Tuva. The tomb dates to a crucial period around 3,000 years ago, between the Bronze Age and the Iron Age.|
The ancient Scythians were a nomadic people who date back to the ninth century B.C.
