17th Century Rock Paintings Found in Karachay-Cherkessia

Rock paintings of the 17th century have been found by scientists in one of the gorges of the Ust-Dzhegutinsky District.

      More than one hundred petroglyphic drawings can be seen on its walls: hunting scenes, bowmen, herds of horses, and many other images. According to research studies, repeated mountain slides here gradually destroy some of the images.

      The gorge used to be a sacred place, the archeologists assume. It is surrounded with ancient agricultural terraces, and settlements with ditches and shafts. Over the rock there is a settlement with barrows, lots of them plundered by black diggers.
