Here, as in planetary chronicle, lists all milestones in the history of the Earth – everywhere geological monuments, ancient burial mounds, stone images, traces of an ancient settlement. Among these stands out “stone island” – sacred land of ancient Stone Tomb. Similar places in the land unit: in Tibet, Nepal and Egypt. This “stone island”, as scientists believe, is one of the most powerful energy centers on the planet. Known ufologist K. Marchuk suggests that Stone Tomb – a special place, plays an important role not only within the planet but of the Cosmos. Here twice visited by the Dalai Lama.

The antiquity of the city is designated artifacts found at archaeological sites. Traces of ancient settlements, the so-called settlements, can coexist with urban buildings and to the uninitiated to be only a bunch of clay, but it is necessary to dig (literally) deeper and you can hear the “voice” of the millennial history. In Tashkent there are a lot of archaeological monuments of Tashkent, but we can highlight three: Aktepa, Ming Urik and Shashtepa.
The aktepa Yunus-Abad (“AK-Tepe” in Turkish means “white hill”). Today it is the largest archaeological site. Archeologists headed by doctor of historical Sciences V. A. Shishkin carried out excavations in this territory in 1948. Then there were found coins of Chach and foundations of ancient buildings. The aktepa is the highest point in the Yunus-Abad district of Tashkent, Yunus-Abad, in turn, is the highest area of the city.

Recall that the first written record of tea dates back to 59 BC, and until now the remains of the oldest plants ever discovered were hundreds of years younger (they were associated with the Northern song dynasty. who ruled in the years 960-1127 ad).
“Our work showed that tea was the drink of emperors of the Han dynasty already 2100 years ago,” according to scientists. They compared the remains of plants with those that were found among the funerary artifacts of the cemetery in the monastery Gorham in Tibet, which is about 1800 years.

In the province of Mendoza (Argentina) paleontologists have found the remains of a giant titanosaur, whose age is equal to 86 million years. The new dinosaur scientists call Notocolossus gonzalezparejasi. This name translates as “southern giant Gonzalez and Parejas” (it was coined in honor of the principal author research Bernardo Gonzalez and the lawyer don Parejas, helping the paleontologists to excavate).
Titanosaurs were the largest land animals in the history of planet Earth. Their weight can reach 60 tons
The unique opening of scientists is that they have found well-preserved bones of the hind paws of a giant dinosaur. This discovery will allow paleontologists to learn more about how it moved some of the largest animals in the history of planet Earth. Recall that the pangolin, whose remains were found in Argentina, belongs to a new subspecies – titanosaurs. Scientists estimate that the weight of these giants can reach from 40 to 60 tons.
