Ancient Barrow Destroyed in Adygeya

 Black diggers have ravaged and leveled to the ground the ancient six meter barrow Tabor by heavy machinery in Adygeya Republic.

      Even local authorities had no idea about "pseudo-archeologists" who carried out excavations there. It is now being investigated how the swindlers managed to get a permit for digging works.

      According to experts, the burial place dated to the 3rd millenium B.C. and has never been explored. As archeologists say there is no sense in further digging works in the barrow, since it has been almost totally destroyed.

      Adygei Office of Public Prosecutor has started investigation on the case of destruction of the culture monument.
