Tanakeevka burial ground

Location: Spassky district, the Tanakeevka village

This monument (the 9th-10th centuries) is one of the most important in Eastern Europe and crucial in illuminating significant questions of the history of Volga Bulgaria, such as the timing of the appearance in the Middle Volga region of this new political entity, the development of a general Volga culture as the result of the interaction of various cultural components, the nature and timing of the appearance of Muslim rites, and so on.
