The Department of the Russian Geographical Society (RGO) in Ingushetia plans to send an expedition to the mountainous regions of the republic in 2018 to search for and excavate the “Cyclopean wall” (made of large hewn stones without a binder solution). This was announced by the chairman of the regional branch of the RGO Dzhambulat Ozdoev.
“In the mountainous Ingushetia there is a cyclopean wall.The archaeologists of the Chechen-Ingush State University were in the mountainous Ingushetia in 1960-1970, one of the participants told me about this wall.In 2018 we will conduct a separate expedition that will look and try to find the remains of this wall,” – he said.
According to Ozdoev, the exact location of the wall is unknown to him, but there are some guidelines on which to find it.
“It is planned to conduct excavations together with the Krupnov Archaeological Center,” he added.
The deputy director of the Krupnov Archaeological Center (center located in Nazran, Ingushetia) Umalat Gadiev noted that in Ingushetia, according to estimates of local archaeologists, there are about 130 objects of “cyclopean nature”.
“They have not been studied, except for some objects, and I can not say that next year we will start studying them or in another year, everything depends on funding,” the archaeologist said.
