Archeologists to Start Excavation of Ancient Site of Ust-Poluy

On July 3 researchers of the Arctic Study Center will start excavation of the ancient sanctuary of Ust-Poluy on the Angal Cape in Salekhard.

      The ancient sanctuary of Ust-Poluy is a unique archeological monument. Scientists found out that this place was the spiritual center for ancient peoples of Yamal. Besides, it was a centre spreading technological innovations, such as metal casting, spinning, and bone carving.

      The monument was discovered in 1932, when workers constructing an air harbor found ancient stone, clay and bone artifacts. Most of them are now kept the Kunstkamera Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography of the Russian Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg.

      Archaeological studies of the ancient sanctuary of Ust-Poluy were recommenced in the 1990s. Yamal archeologists plan to preserve the monument next year.
