The field season is starting on the archeological monument Gorniy Samotnel. This year the scientists want to learn, what is hidden under layers of soil of the monument.
Conducting of the geomagnetic survey is the basic task of the researchers. The specialists of Yamal have no specialized equipment. Therefore they invited the specialists from the town Tomsk. Geophysical survey in Gorniy Samotnel is the only way without destroying to define presence or absence of archeological objects on the area in several thousand square meters. The relief of the location does not mark it anyhow, and to conduct excavations blindly will be expensive and long. According to results of the survey, the scientists will have the map of ancient buildings and objects. It will be created after decoding of the materials in the laboratory of the town Tomsk. The map will be useful for a new expedition on this archeological monument, as «Vesti. Yamal» informs.
Preliminary Gorniy Samotnel dates from the third millennium BC. It is very interesting for the researchers. It is the only human settlement of the Eneolithic Period in the north of Western Siberia situated not on a usual small river but right on the Big Ob River.
According to the information given by the junior scientific employee of the center for exploration of the Arctic Daniil Tupakhin from Salekhard, the settlement was situated here in ancient times. The suppositions of the scientists that it was the settlement of fishermen are very cautious now.
