In 2018, the undisturbed burial of an Iron Age Saka youth was discovered in East Kazakhstan. Furnished with astounding gold grave goods, it is only the second undisturbed burial of its kind to have been discovered on the territory of Kazakhstan. The inhumation was removed as a complete block, and brought to the East Kazakhstan Regional Museum of Local History to be excavated in minute detail. It is currently on display at the Fitzwilliam Museum as part of the Gold of the Great Steppe exhibition. Excavations are ongoing, and are funded by the East Kazakhstan regional government, making the museum a hub for the processing and dissemination of archaeological information. This talk will explore how new discoveries of international importance have changed museum practice, how the museum is navigating the relationship between active archaeological material and existing collections, and how very new information is made accessible to both a local and international audience.
