New rare archaeological find inViminacium

Serbian archeologists unearthed a pristine Roman sarcophagus in
Viminacium, что можно назвать редчайшей удачей для исследователей,
dedicated their lives to studying our distant past
the planets.

First, let’s still clarify for readers (for sure, not
everyone knows this) that Viminacium is an ancient Roman military settlement on
territory of modern Serbia, founded in the 1st century AD and
that existed until the V century, when the Huns ransacked and burned it.
It is interesting in that by those standards it was one of the largest
European cities with a population of over 40 thousand people, the capital
Roman province of Mözia.

For archaeologists, the ancient city is a godsend because
territories did not grow further; new settlements, such as
It was with Budapest, London. This is 450 hectares of “clean”
archaeological site, that is, free from modern buildings,
moreover, the practical territory is still little studied (no more than 5

The Roman sarcophagus found is unique in that
century (previously determined that it dates back to III
century AD) not looted, burial did not damage by accident

heavy equipment (coal power plant). Just a miracle

In the sarcophagus were the remains of a man and a woman, clearly
owned by upper class people. It says clothes
jewelry, as well as other graves of notable people nearby.
Modern research methods will allow archaeologists to further with
Accurately determine when this couple lived, who was the friend

The most painstaking work with this archaeological find in
Serbian explorers are still ahead

We are very lucky, because in the territory of modern
Serbia was born eighteen Roman emperors, including
Constantine the Great. But the greatest luck for Serbian
archaeologists became exactly undeveloped Viminacium, where they were, and
some are buried here, individual Roman rulers.
For example, we excavated the tomb of the supposedly Emperor Mark
Aurelius Karina, discovered at the time unique gold plaques
with curses, like some other finds, invaluable to
world history. And now – new luck: almost untouched
tomb of a man and a woman of the highest Roman class. Since 1982
this is just the second untouched sarcophagus found in
Viminacium. You see now that even in this gracious for
Archeology of a place of luck is not so frequent, especially if
consider that separates us from that time more than a thousand
years old…

The unique sarcophagus was raised and opened on May 10, but only
Today, the journalists of the Serbian TV channel RTS were able to interview
Miomir Korach, however, a scientist, briefly describing the details of this
findings, said that the main, very hard work, albeit
the most interesting, they are yet to come. And this is an analysis of each thing.
