Abstract. In August 2010, the expedition of the Institute of Archaeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the State Research and Production Center for the Protection of Historical and Cultural Monuments of the Volgograd Region conducted rescue excavations of the archaeological heritage site on the territory of the modern cemetery in the city of Novoanninsky, Novoanninsk District, Volgograd Region. As a result of work, one ancient Sarmatian burial, which was destroyed when constructing modern graves, was investigated. A wide rectangular grave pit was oriented with a long axis along the line of the NS. Detected at a depth of 0.50–0.55 m from 0. Dimensions: 2.95x2.1 m. Diagonally, the burial was cut by a modern grave pit, oriented with a long axis along the NE-SW line. Dimensions: 2.4 0.8 m. The bottom of the ancient burial pit was located at a depth of 1.6 m. Shoulders 0.3–0.4 m wide were located at a depth of 1.24–1.34 m, along the walls of the ancient burial pit. In situ preserved bones of the legs of an adult, testifying to the fact that he/she laid stretched out on his/her back, head to the south. The inventory of the burial included a bronze cauldron, a bronze mirror, numerous glass and faience beads, chalk and bronze pendants, a bronze bracelet, a gray-clay bowl, a black-clay vessel, fragments of gray-clay and redclay vessels. Analysis of the funeral rite and inventory makes it possible to attribute this burial to the Middle Sarmatian culture and to date it within the end of the 1st c. BC – the beginning of the 2nd c. AD.
Key words: the northern part of the Volga-Don interfluve, the Middle Sarmatian culture, burial, bronze mirror, bronze cauldron, beads.
