Scientists discovered the 16 new monuments in the Mangystau region
Scientists discovered the 16 new monuments in the Mangystau region. These are the results of scientific expeditions. There are 14 architectural monuments and 2 archaeological facilities in total. For example, there are necropolis and mounds. Experts refer, the findings presumably, to the early Iron Age. The facilities found during the expeditions by the staff of the historical and cultural reserve of the Mangystau region as part of the Modernization of Public Consciousness program will be thoroughly investigated in the future. In total, the 590 historical and cultural monuments are registered in the region. 20 of them have the status of republican significance. Every exhibit keeps the story about our ancestors. The researchers said that the Mangystau region can be called the open air archaeological reserve. Every year the registers of historical finds are replenished with new exhibits. There is a lot of work to do in 2018.
