Résumé

– Satellite images were used to identify barrow cemeteries in the North Caucasus.

– Magnetic prospection helped to recognize circular and rectangular ditches in the cemeteries.

– Archaeological excavations fully confirmed the results of the magnetometry survey.

Introduction

One of the most striking cultural phenomena of the Central Ciscaucasia in the era preceding the Great Migration period is the early stage of the Alanic culture (2nd-4th century AD). More than 1,500 burials have been excavated to date at dozens of barrow cemeteries. A comprehensive study of monuments of this kind, using remote sensing data and geophysical survey methods, was carried out in 2019-2020 by a joint team from the Institute of Archaeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Department of Geophysics of the University of Munich. A number of methodological techniques have been developed for the identification and localization of sub-mound catacombs (Korobov et al., 2013; 2020). This technique was used to investigate two of the largest necropolises in the Central Ciscaucasia, Kievskiy and Beslan, which are located in Northern Ossetia.
