The land covers ancient burial grounds that have yielded priceless archaeological treasures. Mammoth bones transformed into musical instruments, vessels of intriguing shapes, galloping bronze stags, gold that adorned warriors and their horses in death as in life, gods and goddesses captured in marble and terracotta, and many other splendours.
