Kyzyl  Kuragino Railway: Volunteers Needed

 In a few years the Republic of Tuva will become connected to Krasnoyarsk Krai by Kyzyl – Kuragino railway.

      In order to study and preserve the archaeological sites and unique natural objects located in the construction zone, Russian Geographical Society is recruiting volunteers to take part in the largest integrated archaeological and geographical expedition in modern Russia.

      The applications for participation in international "Discover the secrets of the King's Valley of the Kings" youth volunteer competition, to participate in the fourth field season of archaeological and geographical expedition "Kyzyl - Kuragino" will be accepted from January 28 to April 15, 2014. To participate in the contest, applicants must fill out a form on expedition's website. In the past three seasons (from 2011 to 2013), archaeologists and volunteers excavated dozens of large archaeological sites: kurgans, settlements and hill forts. During the first field season, held in the summer of 2011, excavations were carried out on the territory of Tuva on 22 kurgans simultaneously. In high season, nearly 180 student volunteers from across the country: Tuva, St. Petersburg, Moscow and Novosibirsk worked in the camp.

      The second field season expedition lasted from June to September 2012, this time covering two regions: the Republic of Tuva and Krasnoyarsk Krai. 477 volunteers in total, including 90 foreigners from 28 countries took part in second field season. In 2013 the number of expedition participants and their geography continuously expanded. About 600 volunteers – students and young scientists – took part in the third field season.
