New Archeological Findings in Chelyabinsk Region
Island of Faith

Archeologists, who work at the Island of Faith in Chelyabinsk Region, unearthed fragments of unusual ceramic tableware.

      
Fragments discovered date back to neolith, the period known as “era of megalith construction” with megaliths being giant stones, erected about 4 thousand years BC.

      
Scientists are also working with a giant stone, bearing signs of human activities. Functions of this stone – mengir – are still unclear to scientists; possible explanations are cult rituals, memorial functions, or solar astronomical ones.

      The stone, weighing about 14 tons, was discovered last year at south-eastern part of the island. Since there are more vertical stones there, which indicate Sun’s position during equinox and summer solstice, with one stone missing, researchers strongly believe that their stone belongs to this group.

      
The Island of Faith is a beautiful piece of land, located on Turgoyak lake and widely acknowledged as “pearl of the Ural”.
