On.Iturup Island found a settlement, created 5 thousand years ago

On Iturup Island, in the area of ​​the village of Reidovo, archaeologists of Sakhalin State University discovered an ancient settlement established about 5 thousands of years ago.

The remains of about a hundred houses, ranging in size from 4x4 to 12x12 meters, served as dwellings for people from the Neolithic era (up to 5 thousand years) to the Middle Ages. Professor Alexander Vasilevsky, Director of the SakhSU Research Institute, Head of the Department of Russian and General History, spoke about the unique discovery: “Thousands of years ago, hearths burned in these houses, people lived, were born and died. The same as we are, only with different knowledge, ideas about the world and their own traditions. On Iturup, these were the ancestors of the Ainu and other modern peoples of the Far East. For example, the Ainu dwellings were square in shape, while the Mohe (ancient Tungus-Manchu people) had hexagonal dwellings. This suggests that the routes of various ancient tribes passed through the Kuril Islands, including Iturup. "

The find is of great importance for science. The discovery of such a large monument allows us to talk about the great prospects of Kuril archeology, reports RIA Sakhalin-Kuriles.
