Bagan – unrecognized, world heritage

In Mndalay we bought ticket to Bagan at our hotel. The ticket cost us 11$ per person. Bus station in Mandalee is not in the city, so it wasn’t possible to buy a ticket at the bus station.

“Black diggers”

Two-week archaeological expedition of Mariupol state University conducted excavations of the mound in the Novoazovsk area. To find the real sources of the historical past of mankind the students prompted the “black diggers”, which destroyed the centre hills in search of treasure. Read more about the campaign, “Donbass” said the commander, lecturer, Department of historical disciplines of the Moscow state University Vyacheslav Zabavin and master of history, assistant head of the expedition Sergei Nebrat.

The robbers destroyed the monument of history

In the fall of 2010 Mariupol archaeologists out to explore and studying the terrain on the land Pavlodolskaya of the village Council, saw pit field arable extortionate. That there worked “black diggers”, there was no doubt – the hole in the hill was done professionally, and in it and on the surface of the mound, archaeologists have found human bones, fragments of decayed wood and cernovodeanu ceramic chips.

It is likely that these findings diggers were not interested in or they weren’t identified, because this needs a specialskills. Often in mounds you can find products from precious metals, but by making an indentation in one and a half meters and not finding expensive artifacts, the robbers took off. This historical monument was destroyed, – is indignant Sergey Nebrat.

As such, the archaeologists found a mound last fall – in the heart of upland “black diggers” dug a big hole.

About this choice the citizens of Mariupol reported in the Institute of archaeology of the National Academy of science, Ministry of culture and tourism and requested permission to rescue excavations. To hold them decided not to let unscrupulous diggers continue to destroy the grave of their ancestors and themselves to find ancient artefacts and transfer them to the Mariupol local history Museum for the preservation. The court gave the green light, and at the end of June the students went on an expedition. Continue reading
