Archaeologists discover unique finding in Turkistan region

The objects of everyday life of a primitive man were discovered by archaeologists in Turkistan region. Plates, scrapers and other tools were found in the Tutta cave. Examination in Germany revealed that the ancient artifacts are 48,000 years old.

“We are finding interesting items down here, because the humans of the middle ages left behind medieval jars, fragments of ceramics, where they stored food and so on,” said Zhaken Taimagambetov, PhD in History and archaeologist.

Foreign scientists are interested in archaeological monuments of Kazakhstan. The Tuttybulak cave is being explored as part of a project of the European Union by scientists from Germany, Greece and Spain. One of them is Rado Jovica. The archaeologist admits that he has been on many expeditions around the world, but recently he has been attracted to Central Asia. The land here keeps many interesting things, he said.

“Why are caves important? Because organic remains of both humans and animals are preserved in the caves. We can determine the kind of human through DNA analysis by getting the samples from here,” noted Jovica.

Archaeologists say that the oldest cave in the country is an inexhaustible storehouse for study. The nature itself has preserved human history here. There is a lot of work to be done, but the most interesting is ahead. Kazakhstan has over 80 such caves, many of them have not yet been explored.
