As mentioned earlier, a Scythian woman and a child were buried in the side vault of the Tovsta Mogyla Kurgan. In the same chamber with them, there were also the sceletons of a bodyguard and a cook. At the entrance to the vault, there were the remains of the wheels from the funeral cart and a skeleton of a groom. In a separate small adjacent chamber, there was a skeleton of a servant girl. The headdress of the queen together with the pendants are represented in the title image of the article.
