4th-Millenum BC Mound Discovered in Former Province of Arran

 

News Category: Prehistory

As a result of the archaeological dig in the territory of Agstafa region, through which the Baku-Tbilisi-Jeyhan oil and South Caucasus gas pipelines pass, scientists of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography of the National Academy of Sciences have discovered ancient mound dating back to the 4th millennium B.C. 

 

The finding considered to be the most ancient one of this kind in the Southern Caucasus testifies that the tradition of manufacturing burial stones in that region first began in Arran (today the Republic Azerbaijan), and later spread to the Northern Caucasus.
