Sverdlovsk researcher Valentin Degterev, after studying satellite images, discovered a Neolithic Nazca (deposited on the land of the giant figure), which, in his opinion, is the oldest in the region. According to his calculations, the length of the monument the stone age – about 10 kilometers, a width of approximately 5 kilometers.
As noted by the researcher in the article, the geoglyph is located 60 kilometers South-East of the Dyatlov pass is located in the North-West of Sverdlovsk region Ivdel city district, where in 1959 under mysterious circumstances killed a tourist group of nine people.
According degtereva, they discovered dozens of drawings engraved in the ground in the middle of the forest. Many Internet users believe that the researcher found is not a geoglyph, and traces of tractors and logging. However, he writes: “Nothing to do with Geology or harvesting they (the figures) do not have”. According to researchers, the ancient artists depicted “something which now can be interpreted in two ways,” – a comet, a meteorite, or a large bird.
“Two mountains, between which there is that resembles a gate. Perhaps it’s a passage somewhere…” says Degterev, adding that he did not claim, “we’ll never know what was recorded on these drawings.”
According to the researcher, the findings prove that the area around the pass was indeed sacred to the Mansi people that inhabit these places. “The sacred and it was long before there appeared the first resident. So something mystical in it is” – he concluded.
A mysterious event that led to the deaths of Dyatlov’s group, occurred on the night of February 2, 1959. The group consisted of tourists-skiers tourist club Ural Polytechnic Institute. The team leader was a student of the 5th course UPI Igor Dyatlov. Then, for unknown so far reason, staying overnight tourists who hike through the Northern Urals, hastily, not taking warm clothes, left the tent. Subsequently were found the bodies of all nine people. At the conclusion of the examination, most of the tourists froze to death, but some of the victims were found seriously injured, the nature of which is incomprehensible to specialists.
The pass, where the tragedy occurred, was later named Dyatlov. A discussion of the causes of death of tourists continues at the present time. To the same conclusion, the experts did not come. The number of versions of the avalanche, collision with wild animals, the impact of rare and poorly known natural phenomena a test of a new weapon – a weapon, or a new type of missile, attack by escaped prisoners, or Mansi, who consider the mountain Otorten, which sent tourists the sacred.
The most famous geoglyphs are the Nazca drawings – located in South America. 30 km from Nazca plateau Palpa are the “giant of the Atacama desert” and “chandelier” from the Peninsula of Paracas. In North America there are geoglyphs near the city of Blythe (CA). Large ground drawings found in England, in the Urals (the geoglyphs “Moose” in the Chelyabinsk region), Altai, in Africa.
In 2007, NASA experts have discovered geoglyphs in the steppes, Kostanay region, in the vicinity of the village in torghay Kazakhstan. On the Ustyurt plateau on both sides of the Kazakh-Uzbek border has an arrow-shaped geoglyphs.
