Each century has its own secrets and mysteries ...
Why does everyone have their own? Simply, over time, the answers are found to any, even the most difficult and seemingly insoluble question. Today, one of such questions, over which the best minds of mankind are puzzled, is Arkaim ... There are many theories regarding the city of Arkaim in the Chelyabinsk region. Naturally, it is no longer possible to find out for certain. We once went to Arkaim and I can say that visually a little remarkable place, but at the same time many people consider it a place of power.
What is reliably known about it is that it was discovered by scientists in 1987 at the place where it was planned to flood the Bolshekaragan valley in the Chelyabinsk region, in order to create a reservoir in its place. By a lucky coincidence, already, practically, at the final stages of work, the attention of scientists was attracted by a small piece of terrain that has no analogues anywhere in the world. In a valley dotted with boulders, a small ancient settlement was discovered, including dozens of residential buildings, like semi-dugouts with hearths, cellars and wells. According to scientists, this find dates back to the 18th - 16th centuries. BC e., the period of the Bronze Age in world history.
Scientists have made every effort to preserve this area from flooding and in 1991 it was declared a protected area (within the framework of the Ilmensky Reserve branch). According to G.B. Zdanovich, Arkaim is the clearest example of the unity of primitiveness, the indivisibility of its most diverse origins. It is both a fortress, a temple, a handicraft center, and a residential settlement..
Based on these excavations, archaeologists have compiled a picture of the ancient settlement. In their opinion, these were not isolated objects, but an integral complex, with a total area of about two tens of thousands of square meters with defensive structures and developed residential infrastructure, up to water pipelines, which arouses incredible interest in everyone who is more or less interested in history, and so, moreover, utilities.
But not only this progressive «beyond years» engineering construction is puzzling. No less interest and many guesses are concealed in itself by the geometry of this ancient construction site of the century..
For a long time I will be wondering over the unsolvable question at the moment - why does Arkaim have the shape of a circle? This is some kind of symbolism that has come down from oblivion to the present day or a sophisticatedly complex structure that is not accessible to the consciousness of a modern person.
Another secret of Arkaim is that it is not clear why this settlement was burned and abandoned. According to some reports, it did not last so long..
Unfortunately, there is a problem in further exploration of the city, as usual due to the Russian bureaucracy. The zone was declared a protected area, and in such zones it is impossible to carry out excavations and other similar activities, so now the city of Arkaim is simply an open-air museum. Perhaps this was done on purpose so as not to reveal to us this milestone in history. After all, then you will have to explain why, according to historical textbooks, settlements in Russia began to emerge only 1000 years ago, and here is a city that is about 4 thousand years old.
We can only hope that someday we will find out the secret of Arkaim, and for example, the secret of the Sungir settlement near Vladimir, in the place of which there is a dump at the moment, and the estimated age is about 25 thousand years.
