UK scientists have discovered ancient burial in their homeland, which in importance is correlated with the legendary tomb of Tutankhamun
Reported by the Ukrainian service of the BBC. As you know, the tomb was found in 2003 in Essex during road works in the city Prittlewell. However, in addition to a variety of artifacts, no human remains there could not be found, except some particles of the tooth enamel. But, having carried out appropriate tests, the researchers came to the conclusion that it belongs to the Anglo-Saxon Prince IV century.
It’s believed this is the oldest example of Christian Anglo-Saxon Royal burial. After 15 years of tests, some of the artifacts decided to return back to exhibit at the exhibition. The team from the London Museum of archaeology, which excavated the site, said that she was amazed by the intact condition of the burial chamber. In the tomb was able to find a lot of interesting history artifacts. For example, gold coins, decorated utensils, and a lyre box, which, as experts believe that about 1400 years. Specialists, depending on the location of objects, were able to establish that the burial was accompanied by a special rite, testified to the high status of the buried dead.
Scholars have suggested that the remains belong Sebert, Saxon king of Essex (604-616 years), but carbon Dating and other tests showed that the grave was built between 575 and 605 years, we have less than 11 years before his death. However, after 15 years of research, archaeologists suggested that the tomb belongs to Seaxe, brother Sebert.
Director of research and interaction London Museum of archaeology Sophie Jackson said that nobody expected from such findings, at first glance, the “unpromising object”, found in 2003. She said that nobody thought he would be the equivalent of Tutankhamen’s tomb from England.
Recall that, by conducting excavations in Egypt, archaeologists have discovered a sarcophagus with unique artifacts.
