A Neanderthal archaeological site exists near Burchmullo. In mediaeval times, Burchmullo was an important town, fortress and mining location. Polymetallic and other deposits are known in the area, including arsenic, bismuth, lead and silver. In the 18-19th centuries gold was extracted by washing through wool carpets [3]

Burchmullo is also known in Russian culture due to the song Brich-Mulla by Tatyana and Sergey Nikitin.
