Information -

The Sarkyrama settlement is currently being actively researched; archaeological excavations and partial restoration of the site are being carried out. During excavations at the settlement, gold jewelry, bronze jewelry, ceramics with very beautiful ornaments, women's beads, a bronze thimble and a sacrificial lamp were discovered. The beads are a particularly interesting exhibit because they were imported, suggesting that the settlement had a well-developed trading network. Beads were brought from the Black Sea region, and from the countries of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East and were used for jewelry, as part of necklaces, pendants, and sewn on clothes and handbags. The beads are quite small, their diameter ranged from 1 to 5 millimeters, the material is a glassy paste. Also, during excavations at the settlement, ancestral burials were discovered, which is typical for settlements of this type and age.
