The National Museum of Azerbaijani History is going to celebrate the 100th anniversary this year. In this regard, preparations for the jubilee have begun under the relevant decree of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.
Referring to the press service of the National Academy of Sciences, AZERTAG reports that during a preparation for the anniversary, the museum’s fund is replenished with new objects. Following the proposal of Museum Director, Academician Naili Velikhanly to the Chairman of the Upper House of Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, Vasif Talibov, it was decided to permanently store some archaeological finds in the National Museum.
Thus, ceramic vessels and their parts found in the monuments of Kultepe I, Ovchulartepesi, Koitpesi, Duzdag, Nakhchyvantepe, and Oglankala, as well as archeological materials containing one fragment of the cuneiform, were transferred to the museum’s archeological collection. These objects belong to the period of VI-I millennium BC.
It is worth noting that these historical finds are valuable material sources on the history and culture of the region, in particular of Azerbaijan.
