Azer News - - Nation - By La­man Is­may­ilova

This year marks 10 years of joint co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Azer­bai­jani and French arche­ol­o­gists.

An ex­hi­bi­tion ded­i­cated to the re­sults of joint re­search of arche­ol­o­gists of both coun­tries is planned to be held in Baku with the sup­port of the Em­bassy of France in Azer­bai­jan, Pre­sid­ium of Azer­bai­jan's Na­tional Academy of Sciences (ANAS), the In­sti­tute of Arche­ol­ogy and Ethnog­ra­phy and Azer­bai­jan Na­tional Art Mu­seum.

The In­sti­tute for Arche­ol­ogy and Ethnog­ra­phy stressed that rare find­ings of great im­por­tance for world ar­chae­ol­o­gists have been dis­cov­ered dur­ing the 10 years of joint ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ex­ca­va­tions, Az­er­tac re­ported.

Ar­chae­ol­o­gists of the two coun­tries are cur­rently choos­ing the rare finds for the ex­hi­bi­tion.

French arche­ol­o­gists in­clude pro­fes­sor of French Na­tional Re­search Cen­ter Ber­til Lion­net, pro­fes­sor of the Depart­ment of East­ern Arche­ol­ogy of the univer­sity Lu­mière Lyon 2 Michel Kazanova, and Ni­co­las Gail­hard of French Na­tional Re­search Cen­ter, who is a spe­cial­ist in mod­ern ar­chae­o­log­i­cal re­search tech­nolo­gies.

Prof. Kazanova said that for 10 years, French arche­ol­o­gists, along with their Azer­bai­jani coun­ter­parts, con­ducted ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ex­ca­va­tions in­volv­ing multi dis­si­plinary re­search in ac­cor­dance with the re­quire­ments of mod­ern sci­ence in dif­fer­ent re­gions of Azer­bai­jan. Ma­te­rial and cultural ex­am­ples of ne­olithic, chal­col­ithic, pri­mary, mid­dle and last bronze, early Iron and an­tique pe­ri­ods were pre­sented to the world's lead­ing lab­o­ra­to­ries for a va­ri­ety of an­a­lyzes. At the same time, some cultural and cultural sam­ples were re­stored by French ex­perts.

"Ac­cord­ing to the agree­ment signed be­tween the In­sti­tute of Arche­ol­ogy and Ethnog­ra­phy and the univer­sity Lu­mière Lyon 2 in March 2017, some of the ma­te­rial cultural sam­ples re­vealed dur­ing joint in­ter­na­tional ar­chae­o­log­i­cal in­ves­ti­ga­tions in the south­ern re­gions of Azer­bai­jan, was sent to France for work.

All the find­ings have been re­turned to Azer­bai­jan and de­liv­ered to the sci­en­tific fund of the In­sti­tute of Arche­ol­ogy and Ethnog­ra­phy.

It should be noted that in ac­cor­dance with the agree­ment signed be­tween the In­sti­tute of Arche­ol­ogy and Ethnog­ra­phy and the univer­sity Lu­mière Lyon 2 in March 2017, the same theme ex­hi­bi­tion, which re­flects the re­sults of joint co­op­er­a­tion of Azer­bai­jani and French arche­ol­o­gists, is planned to be held in Paris and Tbil­isi in the fu­ture.
