Abstract

Purpose. An analysis of the collection of iron weapons of the Kyrgyz warrior and the equipment of his riding horse showed that they come from a burial made according to the cremation rite. Items of horse equipment are: a bit with a hook method of connecting links and cheek-pieces in the form of large rings; two arched stirrups with holes in the upper part of the shackle and 10 lamellar overlays for a wooden saddle. Results. The weapons consist of 13 flat arrowheads and a saber, which was bend during the funeral rite. Saber length is 0.85 m, blade width is 3.2 cm, and weight is 568 grams. The guard is in the form of a rook; on one side of it, cruciform figures are applied. At the guard on the blade there is a figured clip. The bend of the blade is 1.7 cm, which makes it possible to attribute the saber to slightly curved samples. At the end of the shank, there is a hole for attaching the handle. Probably, the handle was made of solid wood, with a through hole and a prominent head at the end. The saber's feature is the offset of the handle to the back of the blade, which is found on Caucasian (Circassian) checkers. Conclusion. The whole complex of objects has numerous analogies and dates back to the Mongolian period (13th -14th centuries). During this period, there were several migrations of the Yenisei Kyrgyz to the territory of Mongolia and Manchuria.
