Wolf’s Mane – Volchya Griva – Palelolithic site

by Alex on March 26, 2010

First of all, I found a few cool pictures on ScienceFotoLibrary
These pictures are for sale by Russian Information Agency Novosti (RIA Novosti)
This is a biggest and oldest Russian news information agency with huge archive.
And they definitely have some mammoth stuff to present.
I can’t afford buying pictures from stock house for my project, so I did just that (click it):


I hope I am not violating anything, but promoting the seller.
Let me know if I am wrong.

Anyways, this one is a picture that, at a first glance, could be mistaken for some terrifying
World War II documentary.
Actually this is, thanks God, just some more exciting ancient Siberian Mammoth stuff.
This is turning out to be a site of Upper Paleolithic man called Volchya Griva (means Wolf’s Mane)
This settlement is more than 14000 years old.

The site is situated near Mamontovoye village in Baraba Steppe (Southwestern Siberia)
