Archaeologists and black diggers.

Archaeologists and black diggers should find a common language, to combine efforts and work together to preserve historic values in Russia.

If you think that a COP ( the treasure hunting ) is a peaceful, safe and profitable occupation, I hasten to disappoint you – it is not. A man with a metal detector attracts the negative attention of the police and the local population. First, because the diggers are on the bird’s rights. Rather in the law they have no rights at all. If, God forbid, you accidentally got on a historical object (barrow, an ancient settlement, the castle, the ancient man), it is better to pack up and move away. And in time to inform the archaeologists that were walking and stumbled upon a valuable and unique things.

Most often, the diggers, the archaeologists are treated with hatred. They can understand, in fact, they care for the preservation of archaeological sites and artifacts. But there are online allegations that archaeologists themselves are looting and selling the historical value of ancient settlements and burial mounds. Moreover, many treasure hunters are former or current archaeologists. Continue reading

Egypt terminates a contract with archaeologists from the Mormon University

Network still debating extremely incredible news — in Egypt found a grave with two million mummies. For a little bit knowing the history of the issue, this message sounds completely unrealistic. And most importantly — the way it is. History with two million mummies is pure fake, rising to a ridiculous post Brigham Young University.

University Brigham Yang is not an ordinary University. This is the Central scientific authority of the sect of Mormons, called to prove the validity of the claims of the founding fathers of the Mormon teachings. So scientists working for him are aggressive, often outside of scientific ethics and with a considerable thirst for sensationalism. In Egypt they long ago settled in archaeological mission. The excavations Mormon Egyptologists have been ongoing for 28 years.

The decision of the Ministry of Egyptian antiquities (Egyptian Archaeology) instructs to terminate all contracts with the mission of Americans and to prevent further excavations, which led the mission of the University. Grounds for expulsion were numerous violations in the Protocol of interaction between the mission and the Ministry, Continue reading

Archaeological excavations of the ancient settlement of Lucentum (Tossal de Manises)

Those who want to know the origins of the Spanish city of Alicante should also visit one of the sights of Alicante – Lucentum (Lucentum). This archaeological site of an ancient Roman. This place is located on the top of the hill El de Tossal at a height of 38 meters and 3.5 km from the centre of Alicante. The ancient city covers a huge area, component 7. But the excavations produced only on the territory of 2.5 hectares.

In this place approximately in 215 BC, there was a city of ACRA Leuca. And the artifacts that are here today, show that the architecture in those years was exposed to Carthaginian influence. Having existed before the 2nd century BC this city as a result of one of the Punic wars was captured by the Romans led by Publius Cornelia stsipionom. They rebuilt it and named Lucentum, which means in translation “the city of bright lights”. At the turn of the eras, the city reached the peak of its prosperity. But in 2-3 century ad it was abandoned because it could not compete with the nearby city of Ilici, referred to today as Elche. And then it was used as a cemetery for Muslims (5-6 century ad).
