“If you follow the ancient maps written on the stars, no person will ever understand you. So if you could read these maps, would you follow them? And forever be misunderstood? Or would you close your eyes tightly and pretend to be like everyone else?”

Architectural monuments Akmola of region.

The burial ground consisted of 5 rectangular fences and a mound with the fence around its foundation. The height of the remaining burial mound is 0.35 cm and it has two fences. Three fences were ploughed up, currently are not sowed.
People also tried to plough up the remaning mound and fence. Upper along the slope, in 200 m at the ploughed field, there are some stones but it is hard to say whether it was the fence or not. The burial ground is located on the slope of the hill descending to the right bank of Koshkarbaika River. It is dated as of the Bronze Age.
Yenbekshilder rayon of Akmola Oblast geographically is located in the North-Eastern zone of Akmola oblast. This rayon has valley and hilly landscape. The surface contains clay alluvial-dealluvial sediments and solid rocks in the elevated area.
Monotonous landscape is relatively enriched with a small river network and lakes. Rivers and lakes are more concentrated in the western, central and south-eastern parts of the area. Rivers and lakes, as a rule, are different in salinity and scarcity of plantation around the river basin.
River valleys Sagi, Shata, Tassu, Tatymbet, Karasu are relatively narrow (in average 300-400 m); the valley of Atan River reaches the width of 1 km. Within the valleys there are shapes of ancient former river-beds and spring flows.
This fact says that on this territory there were periodically times when the area was more humid and contained more water in comparison with today. Basic concentration of the monuments is near the town of Stepnyak, Ualikhanovo village, Koitas and the valleys of Saga, Atan and Tattymbet Rivers.
River valleys are characteristic not only with burial mounds and burial grounds but also with sites and settlements dated as of the Mesolithic Age and Bronze Age. N Geographical coordinates Burial Ground Kenetkol  - 53° 04’ 25.2”  E 069° 00’ 37.4” Elev 302 m
