Work has continued at the Siberian archaeological site of Ust-Polui, which I wrote about before because of spectacular evidence of an ancient bear cult. Now the site is back in the news because of a new discovery: a suit of armor made from reindeer antlers.
One of the antler plates that made up the suit. Each piece is unique, with a different decorative design.
The site is north of the Arctic Circle and was occupied between 100 BCE and 100 CE. Russian archaeologists think the armor was buried as a ritual offering to the gods or spirits of the place.
