Hundreds of archaeological sites have been identified in the area: settlements, cemeteries, petroglyphs, stone sculptures, megaliths, ranging from the Paleolithic to the Middle Ages. Many Bronze Age (kurgan) mounds have been linked to the Pazyryk culture, which bears similarities to the Shia peoples of the West. The excavations have provided interesting archaeological finds, among which the one of the mummy of a young woman known as the Princess of Ukok, found by the Russian archaeologist Natalia Polos’mak, which, since 2012, has been in the national museum of Gorno-Altaysk . In the second half of the 20th century, three tattooed mummies dating back to 300 BC were extracted from the permafrost of the plateau.
In the heart of the icy Siberian mountains, an ancient and surprising megalithic site has been unearthed whose origins are still the subject of heated and heated debates by researchers from all over the world. These exceptional structures are located on the top of “Mount Shoria” in Gornaya Shoria, east of the thick southern Altai mountains, and were found and photographed for the first time in 2013 by independent researcher Georgy Sidorov, during an expedition organized right on the cold. Siberian places.
The hypothesis that these are natural geological formations would seem excluded, despite the fact that academics and geologists themselves were quick to point out the opposite right away, taking refuge as often happens in these cases in the most unbridled orthodoxy.
Instead, it appears evident through the images, the shots and the many data collected in the field by the researchers who have personally studied the site that we are facing artificial structures, since the mammoth blocks have evident symmetrical cuts, flattened and shaped surfaces, cuts made horizontally and vertical with 90 ° corners and edges.
Russian popular articles have reported that scientists have proposed the rock formation to be the result of geological processes associated with the intense weathering of the rock composing Mount Shoriya. Both tectonic forces acting on deeply buried bedrock and pressure release that occurs within nearsurface bedrock as it is uplifted and eroded commonly form rectangular, block-like, rock formations that consist of jointed rock. Tectonic forces acting on deeply buried massive bedrock, such as granite, and pressure release as this bedrock is uncovered by erosion, can create sets of joints which are known as orthogonal joint sets, that intersect at nearly 90 degrees. Orthogonal joint sets quite often result in the formation of rock formations that are comparable in size and shape to the blocks shown in pictures of the alleged megaliths.
