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].

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.

He also notes that a similar tomb was discovered under the Issyk burial mound (called "Golden Man"). [If there were an Aryan "invasion" from the north, which there likely was not, it may have been roaming nomadic Central Asians coming into ancient Indus River Valley Civilization and/or modern India.] More (Tengri News, June 3, 2013)
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
