Sochi dolmen

«Dolmens are a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb, usually consisting of three or more upright stones (megaliths) supporting a large flat horizontal capstone (table). Dolmens were usually covered with earth or smaller stones to form a barrow, though in many cases that covering has weathered away, leaving only the stone ‘skeleton’ of the burial mound intact.»
– Wikipedia

The monuments date between the end of the 4th millennium and the beginning of the 2nd millennium B.C. — that’s older that Pyramids of Egypt!

Members of Sochi geographical Society had discovered ancient writings on Dolmens located in Sochi area. During their expedition scientists saw images on some of the stones and noticed that they closely resemble Asian petroglyphs. They also believe that these petroglyphs are not just pictures, but have a meaning.

Historians from Moscow will help their colleagues from Sochi to prove or disprove this theory. After that Russian “Culture” TV channel will record a film about dolmens in Sochi.

    Hi all,

    Aditya here. Sochi and infact the entire lower Volga basin in SW Russia is the true Russian cultural origins. I refer you guys to a recent article in several country news sites that a Vishnu’s idol was discovered near staraya maina …in the volga region.

    this along with other things like people’s names around that region ( eastern europe – lithuania,poland,& south west russia ) had culture actually resembing Hinduism that spread from India.
    Thats why also lithuanian language is quite close to sanskrit.
    So what Iam trying to say is that the true culture of some of the countries like poland, lithuania, russia is Hinduism…

    If you look at autosomasl dna studies of eastern europeans even those from isolated villages they have double the amount of indian admixture over regular europeans usually around 11%.
    Whereas most europeans are about 5.6%.

    First, Evolution is western invention with the purpose to hide that encient civilizations existed and with that they wanted to become the smartest creatures in the world. Even they write that Archimedes made Antikitera following work of Arab masters who made simmilar things some 300 years before him. After Lemur and Mu center of civilization was in valley of Inds River, or west India and Pakistan. That civilization was calld Rams pronaunsiation is ROMA. At that time it meant somthing glorious and it gave Italians the idea to call them selves Romans.

    Sochi is NOT RUSSIA, and was never Russia. More than 1000.000 Circassians were killed in Sochi by Russian occupiers. Volga belongs to Tatar-Bashkir Culture NOT Russian. You have to learn History. S.c. Krasnodar region is occupied by Russian terrorists
