The Gobustan State Historical-Artistic Reserve will mark the 50th anniversary of its establishment and 10th anniversary of its inclusion into the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.
The conference “Petroglyphs of Gobustan is at the crossroads of cultures” will be held on June 13-14 as part of the event, Trend Life reported.
The opening ceremony will be held in the Palace of Happiness at 10:00.
The conference will host a presentation of “Gobustan. New look” research carried out by reserve staff with the support of Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the State Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography.
The project involves 3D modeling for the first time in the study of the monuments. New discoveries have opened new opportunities to study the links between Gobustan petroglyphs and rock carvings of Lesser Caucasus.
