Trip to Arkharly

On September, 12 2021 the management of the Institute of Archaeology named after A.Kh. Margulan CS MES RK visited the tract of Arkharly, where the Institute staff, under the leadership of A.Goryachev, carry out work on the certification of archaeological sites.

Earlier, because of economic activity in the tract of Arkharly full of archaeological sites, a large number of ancient petroglyphs with high cultural and historical value were destroyed. However, the selfless actions of caring citizens united in the volunteer group "Petroglyph Hunters" caused a wide public outcry, as a result of which the Minister of Culture and Sport of Kazakhstan A. Raimkulova drew attention to the incident. As a result of the meeting which she held at the site of the archaeological site being destroyed, a decision was made to constantly monitor the site together with the public, the adoption of measures aimed at preserving archaeological sites, promoting scientific research, and creating conditions for tourists to visit the area (

To implement the scientific component of this decision, employees of the A.Kh. Margulan Institute of Archaeology were involved in the work. During the certification, hundreds of clusters of petroglyphs were recorded, and a number of settlement and funeral-memorial complexes were identified: from the Era of Stone to ethnographic time. In the future, archaeological research is planned at the most promising and emergency sites.
