The ridge of UNICOS – Ancient tombs

The ridge of Usakos also quite exclusive route. Tourists don’t drive it often. This for two reasons – few sources of water along the way and a rather big load on my feet – to reach the crown of the route – the devil’s finger ( in Dakhovskaya this rock is called Bell tower ) and return to determine, you need to otmechat twenty kilometers. Options with Shuttle – to Romance ( Victory village ) or Dakhovskaya. The first option is better as you climb and there is no way to Unocosa fun. From Dakhovskaya is also possible (he had passed this way, and got burned, but more on that later), from the stables – and up.

To take Uncos we went on Monday. Light went to work, and the rest, pushed his way his eyes and wash with cold water some morning neverest, moved to Nakasu. All went easily enough, so decided to walk in full to the Fucking finger and back. Having Mesko, we filled out from the source a couple of bottles and crossed the stream. We went straight to the cleft in the ridge, the glorious fact that there is Alanic grave – the grave, which archaeologists produced in addition, Alan and elongated skull. Now in the grave they have this large toad. Katerina immediately dived into the pit, shook hands with the little animals and milesnorth. The rest has already been there this year (when he walked Mesko). Climbing up to the ridge, we – the stone trough, and shreds, as grandmaster, in the bypass, it was on Unease. The Bloody finger on Nakoso you can go two ways – top forest (in the shade, no special attractions, no water sources) or along a trail under Skalnik the sun, a lot of caves, cave Dakhovskaya, very nice and there are a couple of sources of water.

Siberian archaeology — the end of the season

First of all Vyacheslav Molodin has focused on excavations in the complex of Tartas-1 Vengerovsky district of Novosibirsk region. Portal Scientific Russia already talked about the mysterious graves found near the Old village of Tartas. This year archaeologists have examined about 2 thousand square metres, found the remains of dwellings and a variety of things. Found even the Neolithic was the construction of fish processing. The archaeologists used geophysical equipment — magnetometers — and made a map of potential sites for future excavations.

Continued excavations in the Novosibirsk region and “Vengerovo-2”, where the bronze age settlement (about it also wrote the portal of Scientific Russia ). In Vengerovo was made a rare find — absolutely a vessel. In addition, this year there was found a mold for the manufacture of bronze axes. Tellingly, it was made from imported stone, and, apparently, could withstand up to 200 castings.Here’s another proof of the constant mixing of cultures that occurred in Siberia.

And in the Kolyvan district of the Novosibirsk region was found in Mongolian burial related in XIII-XIV centuries. In grave discovered the woman’s headdress, bun, clearly Mongol origin. And lie near the Western Siberian things. This woman, who lived far to the North from the centres of the Mongolian Empire clearly used local things, and, says Vyacheslav Molodin, “was integrated into the local environment.” Continue reading

Learn to look for fossils and be saved from insects

Got up early. The day here starts at 5 and ends at 9, because of the darkness.

After Breakfast, immediately proceeded to business: today has scanned the skull of a Rhino. The skull consisted of two parts: the upper and lower jaw. Scanned in less than an hour, and since the skull could “disassemble” the scan has turned out amazingly detailed: you can look in your mouth and inspect every tooth on all sides.

Today Louis invited us to the nearest place of excavation to show how it actually works. The excavations so far nothing major is found, but will definitely find: the place is extremely gracious. Louis immediately taught us how to identify minerals by color, structure and pattern. After that, it immediately became clear what she was talking about yesterday: fossils are EVERYWHERE. Just lying on the ground: bones of animals, fish, fossil remains of trees, in large numbers.

The remains of the hippopotamus: phalanx.

While it was windy, Louis decided to make a Photomap of the area. This is done by hanging the Camera to the kite. The survey area occurs in high resolution at an altitude of about 50 meters.

Meanwhile Francisco was able to talk with local volunteers. They say that 10 years ago, their life was very different: all were very poor and lived with the only hope to ever leave the city to get work. Family Louise Leakey gave local residents the opportunity to work, to help paleontologists, to feel needed. Love them very much, and sincerely grateful for the opportunity to change your future.
