Anomalous Zones of Russia: The Town of Arkaim
April 12, 2007 15:00


Four thousand years ago the local dwellers suddenly left the town Arkaim located in the south of the present Chelyabinsk Region and burnt the empty settlement. The town had a circular structure coordinated with the stars order. Many believe in mystical characteristics of the area and link it with the legends of ancient Siberia and the Urals. Specialists of the monitoring station of anomalies` research in the Urals claim that the specialized national park-museum Arkaim is a vast anomalous zone.

Arkaim was found by an archaeological expedition of the State University of Chelyabinsk in 1987. Geophysical methods let the scientists come to the conclusion that the ancient settlement located on that territory consisted of 60 buildings (35 in the inner circle of the town, and 25 in the outer circle). So far archaeologists have carefully researched 29 buildings. Although the settlement is not so well-known as Stonehenge it is highly unique and has even more complex organization. Modern astronomers were surprised by the diversification, complexity, and accuracy of the built “project”, taking into account the fact that there had no been found traces of any earlier and simpler constructions in that area.

The fire which burnt the settlement remains one of the main puzzles of Arkaim. It is known that there have not been found any human remains and this makes it evident that the dwellers had been ready to leave the settlement before the fire had broken out.

After archaeologists, historians, and ethnography researchers got interested in the area it caused an influx of psychics, prophets, communicators with outer space, members of various religious cults, people seeking cure and enlightenment, and diverse other pilgrims. “Psychic tourism” in Arkaim started in 1991 after a visit of one of the most famous Russian astrologists, and at the present time the national park-museum is visited by more than 25 thousand people annually. Some media sources report that the multiple visitors of the Arkaim valley can see some strange light moving not in accordance with the satellite trajectory in the sky at night, light flashes, fog clusters, and some other things. If one is to believe the stories of witnesses, people often start to feel unreasonable psychic tension in some areas; they may register changes in heart beating rhythm, blood pressure, and body temperature. The atmospheric temperature in Arkaim can rise and fall by 5 degrees within 5 minutes.

Trees in the nearby forests suffer from cancerous snags, and their trunks are abnormally crooked – this is an obvious sign of geo-pathogenic zones having an adverse impact on plants, animals, and humans. There are tectonic crust fractures in the area of Arkaim which is situated in the river meander; the mountainous surrounding, according to scientists, is seismically active. Areas which cause considerable changes in physical and biochemical indexes and often leading to a sudden health decline are often located not only in the zones of geological crust fractures, but also near channels of underground water flows, mineral resources` concentration spots, and waterlogged places.
