He didn’t even think that he would make the biggest discovery and find a man from the neolithic age. The archeologists have a funny tradition to call the discovery after the person who found it so the skeleton got the name Valihan Senior. For science it is a very important discovery because it proves that ancient people who lived in Omsk oblast had a very complicated social scale and a system of religious beliefs. Thanks to new scientifical methods the scientists managed to define the borders of the graves and as a result on the territory of Stoyanka Omskaya have been found more than 2000 artifacts which are valuable from scientific side.
