Scientists who conducted excavations at the confluence of the Oka and Orlik in 2019, were able to learn a lot about castles which were the ancestors of modern Orlov. In particular, it turned out that a significant part of the people who were entrusted with the protection of the ancient fortress came from other parts of the country. As told during a meeting with journalists, researcher, Institute of archaeology Academy of Sciences Oleg Ragusa, among the ancient warriors were the real heroes. The growth of some of them is not inferior to the growth of modern man — about 180 centimeters, which was much higher than the average for that time. Also, a preliminary study of the remains of the victims showed that for many of them the eagle was not the original Homeland of the Spanish castles.
The soldiers were reporting for duty from other regions of the ancient state. Soon, scientists hope, it will be possible to establish: from what. The analysis of bone remains should help in this. Work on this is already underway. It is also known that during the life of many of the inhabitants of the ancient city broke bones more than once. Traces of fractures, not always successfully fused there are almost every skeleton extracted by archaeologists.
