Bukan-VII burial ground is located in Almaty Oblast, 6,8 km north-east of Uzynbulak Village in Raimbek District, 800 m south-east of Bukan winter quarters. Archaeological site was researched by Almaty reconnaissance expedition of A.Margulan Institute of Archaeology in 2005. Burial complex is situated on the left bank of the Bukan stream in the foothills of northern slopes of Kuluktau Ridge.
Burial complex consists of 18 barrows grouped in several lines stretched in south-west to north-east direction. Embankments are built of earth and stone, fallen, flattened, some are plundered, with a stone ring encircling the basis, covered with turf. Diameters vary from 4 to 10 m, 0,1 - 0,5 m high. External fences up to 15 m in diameter, encircling some barrows, are traced on the surface.
Enclosures of the Turkic period are accumulated in the northern part of the cemetery. Rectangular and square fences are made of large stone slabs installed vertically on the edge, and smoothed-down river boulders put in layers, rising above the surface to 0,4 m. Dimensions of the fences vary from 4 x 4 m to 5 x 9 m. Twin fences are arranged in a common oval fence. Fallen stele shaped stones have been found in some fences. The barrows are spread at distance of 8 - 90 m.
Burial complexes of the Early Middle Ages differ from those of Bukan-V, located 300 m south. This proves that on the certain period of time the area of the gorge get into influence of economic development of another tribal group of ancient Turks despite those buried on the former necropolis. Considerable number of graves of the Bukan-VII burial ground testifies that this territory was under their control for a long period of time.
Such types of burials in stone mounds and commemorative fences arranged in burial complexes of the Turkic period are widely spread on the middle mountain plateau and in the foothills of Toraigyr and Ile Alatau Ridges.
