Scientists Shared Preliminary Results of Archeological Objects Research in Ulytau

Historical and cultural monuments of the Golden Horde era are being studied in detail. European and Japanese labs are carrying out the genetic analysis of the remains from the Ulytau famous burials including mausoleums of Bolgan-ana, Zhoshy and Alasha Khans.

The preliminary results were announced at an international scientific conference in Karaganda.

Radiocarbon analysis was used to study the burial site of Bolgan-ana and the technology helped to determine that there was a high-ranking lady who used to live there in the early 14th century. She was about 40 years old. Her headdress was an attribute of a married woman, which is the only item discovered and preserved in Kazakhstan.

As part of the conference, participants will visit Ulytau region and visit the historical sites.

The event was held as part of the Modernization of Kazakhstan’s Identity program and dedicated to the 750th anniversary of the Golden Horde.

“We are conducting research not only on the Kazakh Khanate, but also on a number of previous states. This is our heritage, and we need to preserve it, including the empire that Genghis Khan and Jochi created. It is necessary for us to take measures on the restoration of historical monuments that will contribute to the development of the region and will reflect on tourism potential of the region,” said Governor of Ulytau District in Karaganda region, Berik Abdygaliuly.
