A reconnaissance of medieval archaeological sites on the right bank of the Yenisei in the vicinity to the village of Bolshoi Telek (Idrinsky District of the Krasnoyarsk Krai) was conducted in August 2017. Two excavation trenches were established on one of the hills northeast from the village. Initially, no visible signs of artificial constructions were noted. Two burials (by the rite of cremation) were discovered beneath the turf layer. The rich grave good kit includes armament pieces and horse trappings (108 artifacts). An iron needle is noteworthy. Its length is 4 cm; diameter 1 mm; round eye diameter is less than 1 mm. The burial rite and grave good kit suggest attribution of both complexes to the culture of the Yenisei Kyrgyzians of the Mongolian period.
