Kurgan Chorna Mohyla, meaning the “Black Grave” is an archaeological site located in the city of Chernihiv, Ukraine. It is a burial mound that dates back to the 10th century and is believed to be the final resting place of one or more members of the ruling elite of the Kievan Rus.

The mound was discovered in the 19th century and was named the “Black Grave” due to the dark color of the soil in the area. Archaeological excavations of the site have revealed a number of interesting artifacts, including weapons, jewelry, and clothing.

The most significant discovery at the Black Grave was a burial chamber that contained the remains of a man and a woman, along with a large quantity of weapons and other objects. The man is believed to have been a prominent warrior or leader, while the woman may have been a member of the ruling family.

The Black Grave is considered to be an important historical site because it provides insight into the culture and society of the Kievan Rus, a medieval East Slavic state that played a significant role in the development of modern-day Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus.
