KAZAKHSTAN, Central Asia - Kazakh archaeologists have discovered a tomb of a “Saka[n] princess,”  reports the expedition head Timur Smagulov. The tomb was found during road maintenance in the district of Urdzhar, East Kazakhstan Oblast.
The burial site of a high-ranking young woman was discovered during reconstruction of Taskesken-Bakty Road in Urdzhar.
An expedition team composed of professors and students from Semipalatinsk and Pavlodar Institutes discovered the stone tomb-chest [a reliquary or urn like that containing "The Buddha's Bones" found entombed in a burial mound] with remains of the young woman at the depth of 1.7 meters under a burial mound [possibly a Buddhist stupa, which were reserved for royalty and saints, chakravartins and arhats].

The artifacts found in at the burial site certify that the woman was from a distinguished tribe. According to archaeologists, golden head wear that looks like a Kazakh Saukele (the national headgear of Kazakh women, Saule being a common female name from prior to Islamization) was the most valuable research item found.

“The pointed golden head wear with zoomorphic ornaments has the top that looks like the arrows and is decorated with a spiral made of golden wire and jewels. A similar head wear used to be part of the official costume of the Saka tribe chieftains. It is quite possible that the woman was a daughter of a king of Saka Tigrakhauda tribe,” Timur Smagulov explained.

According to him, it is quite possible that young Tomyris, who later became a warrior-queen, used to wear similar head wear.

According to the expedition’s members, ceramic and wooden vessels, as well as bones of a sacrificial lamb, were also discovered in the tomb. Pieces of blue and green clothes still clung to the woman’s remains. Golden earrings and a stone altar were found next to her head.

“According to the preliminary information, the tomb of the 'Urdzhar princess' is dated 4th or 3rd century B.C.,” Smagulov said.

He also notes that a similar tomb was discovered under the Issyk burial mound (called "Golden Man").

Golden Man is a Woman
(Issyk Kurgan) Situated in Eastern Scythia just north of Sogdiana, the kurgan contained a skeleton, possibly that of a Scythian [Shakyan] woman, warrior's equipment, and assorted funerary goods, including 4,000 gold ornaments. Although the sex of the skeleton is uncertain, it may have been an 18-year-old Saka (Scythian) prince or princess. The richness of the burial items led the skeleton to be dubbed the "Golden Man" or "Golden Princess," with "Golden Man" subsequently being adopted as one of the symbols of modern Kazakhstan. A likeness crowns the Independence Monument on the central square of Almaty. Its depiction may also be found on the Presidential Standard of Nursultan Nazarbayev. More
