Adygea and Kuban Dolmens Might be Included in UNESCO Heritage List

The ancient dolmen culture of Adygea and Kuban is not protected from vandals and needs conservation at the international level.

      Archeologists of Adygea have come up with this suggestion.

      As Kuban.Info reports, the experts intend to petition for including the dolmens of Adygea and Kuban into the UNESCO cultural heritage list. Thus, according to the archeologist Aslan Tov, saving dolmens is a challenge for the entire world community and the few remaining dolmens should be preserved for posterity. The involvement of UNESCO in protection of these monuments of ancient culture is necessary, since the existing local services prove unequal to this task.

      Aslan Tov pointed out that parceling out of land for development purposes is taking place in the dolmen area in the Hadzhokh Settlement of the Maikop District of Adygea.

      According to historians, there were about 3000 dolmen constructions in Russia, however only about 150 have come down to us.
