"Findings as a result of illegal archeological excavations carried out by scientists from Armenia and other countries in Azykh cave which is a primitive human camp of the Paleolithic period have been packed. Most of them are the remains of ancient fauna. Those findings in about 90 plastic boxes were brought to Baku last night and placed in the Archaeological Fund of the Institute,” said Deputy Director for Scientific Affairs of the Institute of Archeology and Ethnography of ANAS, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor Najaf Museyibli, APA reports.

“A few days ago Azerbaijani military informed Institute of Archeology and Ethnography on finding boxes, in which there were archeological materials, with a writing of “Azykh” on them while reviewing one of the houses in Azykh village of Khojavend district, liberated from occupation.

As the information was very significant, an employee of the Institute, Ph.D. in history Azad Zeynalov was sent to the village with a representative of the State Security Service of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
