Maiden tower and ancient places of worship

Studying places of worship and rock artifacts throughout the Absheron Peninsula together with Abbas Islamov, we came to the conclusion that almost all religious buildings of Absheron built on the iconic places that people worshiped for a few millennia. First, we have investigated preserved in Absheron and Gobustan with the bronze age ancient burial mounds, crypts, tombs carved into the rocks. Around these graves on the cliffs there are various kinds of hollows and Cup marks. Most likely these holes are of a ritual character, and the same species occur all over the Absheron Peninsula at a considerable distance from each other. Then were examined preserved places of worship (feasts), religious buildings (mosques, mausoleums) and the medieval cemetery. On the rocks, next to almost all of these places also have found ancient hollows and Cup marks. This suggests that certain places on the Absheron Peninsula was considered particularly revered. These are typically open hills with rocky soil. Here in the stone graves, as it could be carved in the rock tomb or stone blocks lined with tombs, burial mounds, the bronze age people were buried. Such burials are not massive and most likely belonged to the most revered members of society. The graves come to worship and bring offerings, which were left in speciallyformulated on the rocks around the graves. These places people have visited for centuries. Continue reading

Physics will help to determine the exact age of the finds from the excavations of the ancient city of Phanagoria

On the Taman Peninsula began a new season Phanagorian expedition

The exact age of artifacts found at the site of the ancient city of Phanagoria in the Krasnodar region, will help determine the scientists of the national research centre “Kurchatov Institute”. In the joint work of physicists and archaeologists will be used only in Russia resonant circular particle accelerator – a synchrotron, told TASS the head of the Phanagorian archeological complex expedition Vladimir Kuznetsov.

“The representatives of the Kurchatov Institute will participate in the work of the expedition – it is possible that on the site. Using different physical hardware, for example, Russia’s only synchrotron, it is possible to determine the age and composition of the artifacts, structure of matter, the origin of the material from which are made coins, utensils or weapons,” he said.

According to Kuznetsov, similar studies of archaeological finds outsales a few institutions in the world. “In this regard Phanagorian expedition, Russia’s only multidisciplinary, it becomes even more advanced,” – said the Agency interlocutor. Continue reading
