Ancient Ceramics of Unknown Culture Found in Kuril Islands

Archeologists of the Sakhalin Museum of Local Lore Three have found ancient sites in their current expedition to Iturup (the southern Kuril Islands).

      One site located on a high coastal terrace at the mouth of Kuybyshevka River harbored fragments of ceramics which have no known parallels in the Kuril Islands, or in Sakhalin, or in the the Japanese island of Hokkaido, which is next to them.

The found ceramics are fragments of several same-type vessels, which differ from well-known samples in the shape, ornament, clay composition, and overall appearance. Scientists need to carry out extensive research work to establish where these artifacts come from and what ancient culture they might belong to.
