Archeological monuments are under threat by water, people and animals

Despite a squeamish attitude of some residents of the republic towards the man-made Shagonar sea, plenty of people go there in the summer to relax. People feel maximally uninhibited - there is nobody to chase them away from the water. In the growth of wild hemp on the shore, there are copious signs of active relaxation: bottles, plastic bags, and other detritus of human life activities. But these are not the only “riches” of the shores of the reservoir.

Unique necropolis discovered in Tuva

Unique necropolis discovered in TuvaHow many kurgans are there in Tuva? This is a question that is difficult to answer even for archeologists who have been working in Tuva for several decades. Many. There is not a single district without burials from the Turkic or Scythian epoch, and sometimes they can be seen intermingled on a single territory.

The secrets of Bizhiktig-Khaya

In Tuva, in the vicinity of practically any inhabited area, you can find “open books”, where our ancestors left the traces of their lives on this territory. Stone statues, petroglyphs, deer stones, remains of ancient military fortifications, irrigation canals, kurgans holding burials of kings, chieftains, leaders, warriors of the tribes of Sayan-Altai… “To the credit of our distant and recent ancestors, I would like to note that antiquities of Tuva have been preserved better than anywhere else…” Sergei Shoigu writes in the “Tyva Depter” anthology, of which he is the collector and editor.
