More than 4 thousand years ago, one noble woman, perhaps ancient queen, was carefully buried outside modern territory of London. Archaeologists have recently discovered her grave in a career that sits between Windsor Castle and Heathrow Airport. The gold jewelry shows that this woman was an important person, perhaps a representative of the nobility, princess or queen. The bones of a woman were damaged acids of the soil, which makes it impossible to accurately date find age using the radiocarbon method and DNA analysis. However, archaeologists have suggested that at the time of death between 2500 and 2200 BC she was at least 35 years old. On the woman was necklace of gold plated beads, black lignite discs, in color resembling agate. Although her robes had long since crumbled into dust, amber buttons were found on the woman’s body and fasteners, by the location of which you can predict her outfit. A team of archaeologists suggests that the woman found to people of cup culture – a common Neolithic culture, named after ceramic dishes that remained in place their residence. Remains of cups are found almost throughout Europe, and in the territory of Britain were found several items of utensils with gold ornaments. Excavation chief Gareth Chaffey says that they would be interested to know what place this woman had in society. “Perhaps she was an important person in society, held any high position due to which owned these expensive and rare jewels. She could be a leader a person with power, or perhaps a member of a noble family – princess or queen. “Her jewels that were made of very rare materials are an eloquent indicator of her public status. Analysis showed that gold from the grave comes from from Ireland or southern England, and amber from eastern England or even the Baltic. In addition to the graves of people culture cups archaeologists found many ancient remains of late glacial tools period, as well as other burials of the time. Scientists hope that finds will be exhibits of the local museum.
