|Zeleny Yar Child Warrior|
|Culture||possibly from Northern Sibera|
A child aged 6-7 years old, wearing child-size bronze axe and bear pendant from the site Zeleny Yar necropolis, close to the Siberian Arctic. Child appears to be male, as belongings consist of a bronze axe and an unidentifiable sharp tool. Items found with the body include an axe, pendant, and rings, suggesting the boy was from wealthy descent.
Body almost completely mummified with copper or bronze plates, except the right hand and legs. Covered in birch bark. Body was wrapped in layers of fur.
