hi all! another older find i have just found not to be marked yet.
"The geoglyph is located on the slope of Zjuratkul Ridge, near the lake of the same name in the Zjuratkul National Park. The area of the geoglyph is crossed by an excursion track leading to the top of the ridge which dominates the surroundings. It was found by satellite imagery and subsequently surveyed by a hydroplane and a paraglider. It shows that, unlike the Nasca lines, the geoglyph is covered by a layer of soil and is visible only from a great height in the form of lines of a different colour."
"Dating this geoglyph is more complicated in the absence of dating material, as is the case for most geoglyphs the world over. However, some observations may be useful. The buried soil in Trench 1 was only 8cm thick but, supposing that during building of the figure this buried soil was partly destroyed, it is possible that this buried soil was once 10cm thick. Furthermore, in antiquity the stone outline would have protruded above ground, and today there is 40–50cm of humic soil over the virgin soil in the trench. The formation of soils in the high-mountain area of Lake Zjuratkul began in the very early Holocene. In conditions of gradual and uniform accumulation of humus, this soil accumulation would suggest that it took place over 7000–9000 years; i.e. from the Neolithic onwards."
