YEKATERINBURG, October 27 (RIA Novosti) - Additional excavations could be carried out in the Urals area where the remains of the family of Russia's last tsar Nicholas II were found, a local archeologist said on Monday.

The remains were discovered near Yekaterinburg in 1991.

"We plan to begin the excavations in June next year. We earlier thought we could start this fall, but the work was postponed due to lack of funding," Sergei Pogorelov told RIA Novosti
