The article publishes the results of rescue excavations of a small area (about 47 m2) Novo-Ufa burial ground. The description of the burial rite and inventory of 12 burials is given. Weapons, household items and jewelry were found in the graves. Two groups of burials were identified in the investigated area. One group of burials dates back to the II–I centuries BC. The date is established by the presence of bronze arrowheads and eight-shaped buckles in the burial complexes. The second group of burials is attributed to the I century BC – I century AD. The chronological position of this group is determined by the presence of iron arrowheads, buckle with a movable tongue and bronze diamond-shaped belt pads in the graves. Thanks to the research of 2000, ideas about the territory of the Novo-Ufa burial ground have changed. The area of the necropolis has almost doubled. New chronological boundaries of the monument have also been installed: IV century BC – I century AD.
