“I would like to see the places where ancient people left their traces. I want to take part in excavations and open a museum in the future. That's why I came to school,” said another student Ulyana Zabrodina.
One of the ancient settlements is are located near Lake Borili in Akkuly district. The historians estimate its age as 6,500 years. Scientists believe that this may be ancient pastoral settlements.
