Summary/Abstract: A 1st—5th centuries Tarasovo burial ground located on the Middle Kama River is the largest among the Finno-Ugric sites in Eurasia. Its 1,880 burials with 2,096 buried and over 37,000 artifacts were excavated and thoroughly studied over the area of over 16,000 sq. m. The graves’ descriptions and drawings were published, the burial ritual was studied, and the chronological division by centuries and half-centuries, if possible, was developed. Fibulae (147 pcs) hold a specific place among the accompanying grave goods. They were found in the 3rd—5th centuries graves only and include import (26 pcs, 9 types) and local (121 pcs, 10 types) versions. The analysis of the import fibulae allows to trace the 3rd—5th cen. historical ties of the Perm Finns mostly in the south-western direction, such as the Crimea, Kuban River Region and Lower Volga Region, as well as with the southern Sarmatians from the South Cis-Urals. Plenty and great variety of the local fibulae manifest the aesthetic views of the local populace and corroborate the existence of the Kama bronze-casting school.
