Around 2009 an excavation took place near the Russian town of Marinskaya, performed by the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Institute of Archaeology RAS and ‘” Nasledie”. The excavation encompassed a large free standing burial mound that was used from the Early Bronze age up to the 1st century BCE. It was catalogued in detail.
For my “Hole in History” tale, I picked one late Maykop grave (number 25 to be precise) and started from there.
