Updates on Mongolian field season 2020

Special comission of the Ministry of education, science, culture and sport decided to cancel forighn expeditions for this season to protect Mongolia from COVID-19. We support this decision completely. We preliminary shift excavation of Tsagan Agui to spring of 2021.

It doesn’t mean that work freezed up. We are working on samples delivery to Russia. Mongolian part of our team will continue to work on sampling for isotopic map of Mongolia. Just yesterday last portion of samples for OSL-dating was delivered to IVPP, China, where Ge Junyi works hard on estimating the age of the Paleolithic sites from Orkhon valley. Lab analysis of other samples is on-going in Novosibirsk.

Soon we will publish new updates, and some of them will be pretty exciting!
