Unique Petroglyphs Discovered In The Caucasus

Archeologists from Saint Petersburg have discovered unique petroglyphs at the Western Caucasus, reports the fellow of the Institute of History of Material Culture.
      
      Its the first time Russian archeologists have discovered a frieze with pictures of animals and human beings on the wall of a Caucasian dolmen an ancient entombment, built from huge stone plates 3 thousand years BC.
      
      Ancient burials, looking like a box made of stone, covered with a plate, are common for coastal regions of Europe, Asia and North America.
      
      Archeologists till have to find out the real meaning of ancient petroglyphs, however the discovery obviously sheds more light on ancient cult traditions.
