The history of ancient Siberia is full of secrets and unsolved mysteries. Famous archaeologist Leonid Kyzlasov . opened in Khakassia ruins of the ancient city, comparable in age with the first settlements of Mesopotamia, offered to leave his excavations for future researchers. The world of science, remaining in the prison of Eurocentrism, not yet ready for such discoveries that will revolutionize all present ideas about the historical past.

In the first two photos – the ancient megaliths which owe their origin to the times, which are called, according to the biblical traditions, “ancient” or “prehistoric” (in Puru and Lebanon).

The technical Foundation of the Gothic style

Gothic architecture can be determined by design technology – the Lancet arch defines the characteristics and artistic merits of the building: the use of Lancet arches, is more stable than a semicircular arch that transmits the thrust at certain points, reinforced with buttresses and flying buttresses. So exempt the piers used for additional lighting. they cut out Windows and put glass. A feeling of rush up, the internal volume rushes in height. The architects have tirelessly and successfully worked in these two areas that. as the discharge surface vertically, leading to new achievements. Occasional setbacks did not stop searching, do not put into question the principles of Gothic architecture. The style was, thus, derived from technology, and this determines the taste, creating new criteria of beauty.

Gothic art was not used in Italy than in France. The Church here is less high. They are darker because they do not transmit the thrust of the PA poles for the liberation of surfaces of walls.

Ancient civilizations on the territory of Russia

Many scientific articles and books written about the various artifacts and ancient structures in the territories of different countries. Only the findings on the territory of Russia for some reason silent. I decided to fill this “gap” some information on this topic.

The artifacts found there (stone bowls, mortars, instruments of labour and hunting) are dated by scholars to the 2.4 – 3 million years. Finds quite a lot — there are already tens of thousands of artifacts, which indicates a fairly dense and long-term human settlement in this territory.
