In the Amur region, archaeologists have found the hearth of an ancient man

A unique ancient structure - a stone hearth with air ducts - was discovered by archaeologists on the Uldugichi River, a few kilometers from the village of Albazino, Skovorodinsky District, Amur Region. This was reported by the newspaper "Amurskaya Pravda".

Scientists suggest that the construction could have been created by the Jurchens, traces of which have not yet been found in the Skovorodinsky region. “As soon as the top layer was removed under the grass, an unusual structure was discovered - a stone furnace with air ducts. Warm air passed through them, and above it there was a small hut - 3 by 4 meters, here there was a chimney and an exhaust hood, - said Sergei Valchak, a researcher at the Institute of Archeology of the Academy of Sciences. “For the Amur Region, for these places, all the more, this is a unique design.”

Another feature of the found archaeological site is its almost complete preservation. In addition to the hearth and the heating system, the "heel" stone has also been preserved, which supported the door to the hut of ancient people. After the study, the archaeologists plan to preserve the unusual structure and move it to Albazino on the territory of the museum.
