"Baikal Stonehenge" at least 4000 years

November 9 2005

It has recently become aware of the first results of the expedition of the Baikal-2005: The Great Russian Triangle, "which was initiated by Andrei Polyakov, a well known journalist and researcher of antiquities.

As previously reported, members of the expedition in September 2005 was to explore the Cape Ryty where they found ancient artifacts: the system rounds (stone pyramids), the remains of the ancient wall, as well as pottery fragments.

Ceramics can be attributed to the 3.2 millennium BC. By the Neolithic or later Bronze Age. On Lake Baikal and the earlier found traces of the Neolithic, but they are not very well researched "- made the Opinion Dniprovskyi Kirill, head of the archeology of Siberia and the Far North of the State Museum of Oriental Art, candidate of historical sciences.

Shards of pottery were found within the ancient walls of hand-laying, which is part of a complex system, located on Rytom. Local researchers have dubbed it "the Baikal Stonehenge "by analogy with the British megalithic monuments.

"Now I have no doubt that the stone Rytogo system belongs to the so-called slice Observatory, - says Andrey Polyakov. - The findings of archaeologists clearly given to understand that we are dealing with a highly educated and relatively ancient civilization that existed in different corners of the earth for 2.3 millennia BC.

The last such observatory found in China a month ago. Scholars date it as the second millennium BC. Usually in such places, there was no written language and many versions are built only on hunches researchers. Expedition Polyakov luckier.

"Our friends Baikal showed us ancient rock carvings, which, along with very interesting subjects there is an ancient map - continues the story of Andrei Polyakov. It is carved on one of the rocks. Its surprising contours clearly depict the Lake Baikal, and where people live are marked by circles. Around the same places are now the modern towns. Interestingly, the deer shown in the adjacent figures, on the conclusion of scientists from the Baikal-Lena Reserve, became extinct about the second millennium BC. This, in my opinion, a good clue to ancient mysteries. "

Alexander Burmeister, Baikal captain who discovered the cave paintings promised that he would try to keep their location secret until the archaeologists arrived. Although some fragments of rock have been destroyed by local residents. Some of them adorn the interiors of homes.

"Another clue to the structures Rytogo lies directly on the surface of the cape. Three arrows of the stones are oriented to the East, as well as in other similar observatories focused on the solstice, - says Andrey Polyakov. - And there was continual adjustments to a certain point azimuth. Here astroarheologi could apply the method of Norman Lockyer, described by him in 1894. And comparing the angle axis of the earth with the points of the orientation of the stone arrows can determine the true age of the rock system Rytogo.

According to researchers, in order to unravel the many mysteries of the Cape will require a comprehensive scientific expedition. Poles believe that many interesting things can open not only to archaeologists, historians and astroarheologam, but geologists.Since the fold, where local shamans strictly forbidden to enter someone else, remains virtually untouched for serious research.

"Archaeological science is now in a state where that can be found, has already been found, - said Kirill Dnipro - Now the problem - they found the monuments to explore. But this many years of hard work. "

Expedition in 2005 was organized by a tourist company in the world of fantasy "
