"Large-scale works are being carried out in the liberated territories of Karabakh", Director General of the Institute of Archeology, Ethnography and Anthropology of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS) Professor Abbas Seyidov said in the first international conference on "Forensic archeology and forensic anthropology: Humanitarian applications", APA reports.
He said that last year, 8 months of archaeological excavations were carried out in Uzarliktepe, a 4 thousand-year-old ancient city in Agdam, and more than 2,400 sq. meter area was studied: "We will inform the public in detail about the results soon. A lot of archeological materials have been found there. The city has construction and farm remains. Remains of smelting furnaces, and furnaces for making ceramic dishes were discovered. Excavations were carried out in Uzarliktepe for the first time in the 1950s. However, the excavation of that time and the current one are of course not the same. Now the technology is too modern. We already see if there are any construction remains under the ground with modern equipment".
