Archaeology

[edit]

The ancient Poylu II Settlement was discovered during the construction of the Baku–Tbilisi–Ceyhan pipeline.

Excavations revealed several occupational phases. The lowermost layer shows a late Eneolithic period of domestic occupation, dating to the early fourth millennium BC. A multilayer settlement of Leylatepe culture is attested. The Leylatepe deposits start at the natural soil layer. A small amount of Kura–Araxes culture material was also recorded at the depth of between 70 cm and 110 cm. Yet no clearly defined cultural layer is formed by these deposits.[3]
