Anomalous zones of Russia: Arkaim town
Four thousand years ago the local dwellers suddenly left the town Arkaim located in the south of the present Chelyabinsk Region and burnt the empty settlement. The town had a circular structure coordinated with the stars order. Many believe in mystical characteristics of the area and link it with the legends of ancient Siberia and the Urals. Specialists of the monitoring station of anomalies` research in the Urals claim that the specialized national park-museum Arkaim is a vast anomalous zone.
Arkaim was found by an archaeological expedition of the State University of Chelyabinsk in 1987. Geo physic methods let the scientists come to the conclusion that the ancient settlement located on that territory consisted of 60 buildings (35 in the inner circle of the town, and 25 in the outer circle). By the moment archaeologists have carefully researched 29 buildings. Although the settlement is not so well-known as Stonehenge it is highly unique and has even more complex organization. Modern astronomers were surprised by the diversification, complexity, and accuracy of the built project, taking into account the fact that there had no been found traces of any earlier and simpler constructions in that area.
The fire which burnt the settlement remains one of the main puzzles of Arkaim. It is known that there have not been found any human remains and this makes it evident that the dwellers had been ready for leaving the settlement before the fire broke out.
After archaeologists, historians, and ethnography researchers got interested in the area it caused an influx of psychics, prophets, contactors with outer substances, members of various religious cults, people, seeking cure and enlightenment, and other pilgrims. Psychic tourism in Arkaim started in 1991 after a visit of one of the most famous Russian astrologists, and at the present time the national park-museum is visited by more than 25 thousand people annually. Some media sources report that the multiple visitors of the Arkaim valley can see some strange light moving not in according to the satellite trajectory in the sky at night, light flashes, fog clusters, and some other things. If believe the stories of witnesses, people often start to feel unreasonable psychic tension in some areas; they may register changes in heart beating rhythm, blood pressure, and body temperature. The atmospheric temperature in Arkaim can rise and fall by 5 degrees within 5 minutes.
Trees in the nearby forests suffer from cancerous snags, and their trunks are abnormally crooked this is an obvious sign of geo pathogenic zones having an adverse impact on plants, animals, and humans. There are tectonic crust fractures in the area of Arkaim which is situated in the river meander; the mountainous surrounding, according to scientists, is seismically active. Areas which cause considerable changes in physical and biochemical indexes and often leading to a sudden health decline are often located not only in the zones of geological crust fractures, but also near channels of underground water flows, mineral resources` concentration spots, and waterlogged places.
Good enough reason to burn it and move.
Archaeological excavations indicated that the people, who inhabited Arkaim, represented one of the most ancient Indo-European civilizations, particularly the branch, which is referred to as the Aryan culture. Arkaim turned out to be not only a town, but also a temple and an astronomic observatory.
"A flight above Arkaim on board a helicopter gives you an incredible impression. The huge concentric circles on the valley are clearly visible. The town and its outskirts are all enclosed in the circles.
We still do not know, what point the gigantic circles have, whether they were made for defensive, scientific, educational, or ritual purposes.
Some researchers say that the circles were actually used as the runway for an ancient spaceport," Vadim Chernobrovy said.
Researchers discovered that the ancient town was equipped with a storm sewage system, which helped Arkaim's residents avoid floods. The people were protected against fires as well: timbered floorings and houses themselves were imbued with fireproof substance. It was a rather strong compound, the remnants of which can still be found in the ruins of the town.
Each house was outfitted with "all modern conveniences," as they would say nowadays. There was a well, an oven and dome-like food storage in every house. The well was branching out into two underground trenches: one of them was directed to the oven and the other one ended in the food storage.
Arkaim in Russia is believed to have been constructed by Indo-Iranian tribes some 4000 years ago.
The trenches were used to supply chilly air to the oven and to the food storage. The cool air from the trenches also created a very powerful traction force in the Aryan oven, which made it possible to smelt bronze there.
The central square in Arkaim was the only object of square shape in the town. Judging upon traces of bonfires that were placed in a specific order on the square, the site was used as a site for certain rituals.
Arkaim was built according to a previously projected plan as a single complicated complex, which also had an acute orientation to astronomic objects.
While archaeologists are meticulously brushing dust off ancient stones in an attempt to recreate the lifestyle of Arkaim's residents, ufologists study mysterious phenomena, which they register in the town: inexplicable fluctuations of voltage, magnetic field tension, temperatures and so on.

Archaeological cultures associated with Indo-Iranian migrations (after EIEC). The Andronovo, BMAC and Yaz cultures have often been associated with Indo-Iranian migrations. The Swat, Cemetery H, Copper Hoard and PGW cultures are candidates for cultures associated with Indo-Aryan movements.
Was the town built on a meteor crater?
I've not seen any mention of that what-so-ever.
Great opening for a Lovecraft story.
They could be my ancestors and I spent 30 years building intergrated circuits.
My, how you’ve devolved!
Just kidding. Great post.
4000 years ago would be pre-Flood, wouldn’t it?

WOW! Brilliant post, breathtaking images. Fascinating!
I have solved the mystery of the fire. Mrs. O’Leary’s cow...
Interesting addition, thanks.
Very interesting post!
The people were protected against fires as well: timbered floorings and houses themselves were imbued with fireproof substance.
Any ideas as to what the fireproof substance would be? Are they saying they had clay or stone floors, or treated lumber?

I wonder what happened to Rightwhale?
It’s possible that he is no longer with us, but no one seems to know him well enough to find out.
