Project Description

There have been a number of studies on the pre-modern Siberia.

Our project on the Salekhard mummies, under the international collaboration with the Institute for Problems of the Development of the North (Russia) is therefore important. By the proposed research and various techniques entailed on the mummies discovered from the cemetery of Salekhard, a full and very detailed biological and anthropological picture of the pre-modern Siberian people can be obtained.
