Polish Prince’s grave full of ancient treasure
An ancient tomb packed with riches has been unearthed by archaeologists in the northern region of Mazowieckie, east of the River Vistula. Due to the contents of the tomb, scientists have nicknamed the site ‘the Prince’s Grave’.
The lavish grave was actually found in the summer of 2018 but archaeologists have only just announced its discovery owing to fears it might be looted. The precise location of the site, however, still remains a closely guarded secret. Archaeologists found that although the grave had been plundered numerous times in antiquity, it still contained several valuable artefacts which included fragments of bronze vessels, bronze spurs with silver inlays, a metal belt buckle, and even a gold ring.
It is still a mystery who the grave belonged to. “Only a wealthy person could afford such rich burial equipment, some of which could have been imported from other regions, including Rome itself,” archaeologists from Warsaw University explained.
The tomb has been nicknamed the ‘Prince’s Grave’. The exact location of the grave has been kept secret due to the high value of the artefacts it contains
