Mansi Ethnographic Park

"The Land of Ancestors" Ethnographic Park, dedicated to the Ural's indigenous  peoples of Mansi and ethnic groups, which previously inhabited the Urals, will open in the Sverdlovsk Oblast in September, ITAR-TASS reported the words of one of the ethno-park's founders Alexei Slepukhin, the traveler and member of the Russian Geographical Society.

      "The park will consist of two parts. One is devoted to the monuments of megalithic culture (New Stone Age): Ural dolmens, ancient stone sculpture and so-called "pisankas", the cave art, the age of which experts define in the range from 4.5 to 5 thousand years. The second – to the later history of the Mansi – “the forest people" still living in the Urals", he said.

      For 11 years, the members of Tourism and Culture Research Center's "Team of Adventurers" nonprofit partnership studied Mansi culture and Ural megaliths (stone structures of predominantly religious purpose). First dolmens in the Sverdlovsk region were discovered and described four years ago during an archaeological expedition, organized jointly with the Institute of History and Archeology of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
