Ancient Archaeological Monument Destroyed in Priozersk Region

The most interesting archaeological monument of the Leningrad Region – a complex of cult stones by Olkhovka Village in Priozersk Region – may disappear under the bases of cottages.

      Archeologists, geographers, nature defenders and merely indifferent citizens sound alarm: the unique archaeological complex is on sale just like usual land for countryside building. This complex represents the largest in the European part of Russia accumulation of ancient sacrificial chalice stones and a few objects accompanying them. The monument was discovered by archeologists in the 1980s and got the status of a cultural heritage site in 2009. In May, 2012 there appeared an advertisement about the sale of land plots, among which there is the central part of the monument’s territory. At the same time it remains unknown who is the owner of the land and who has put it up for sale.
