Dancing Shamans Found Near Baikal

Scientists have discovered unknown ancient petroglyphs.


Scientists from Irkutsk have found cave paintings of ancient people in Northern Baikal region. The gallery of petroglyphs was discovered in a hard-to-reach spot of Frokhlinsky wildlife preserve. Tourists can enter there only with a special approval – this is why ancient images remained untouched and unknown up to present times. Though, scientists mention that it is quite difficult to define the exact age of paintings, they are sure that petroglyphs date from 26th century BC. This period of Baikal history is known as pre-Evenk times – that period the area was inhabited by taiga forest tribes. Experts underline that paintings look the same like the ones found on Sagan Zaba marble cliff at the opposite side of the lake. That place is considered as the largest petroglyph gallery on the Baikal shores.
