Day 3: Ashgabat – Mary – Gonurdepe
The team of our company will give you the opportunity to visit 5th center of civilization Margush/ Gonurdepe. It is located north-east site 90 km from Mary city. The wonderful Bronze Age civilization appeared here and known as Margush, meaning 'lowland', or from the Greek name of Margiana. It was discovered since the early 1970s by Professor Viktor Sarianidi - the leader of Margiana Archaeological Expedition. It is important to note that the Bronze Age sites were found beyond the northern edge of the present-day oasis, where you can find desert. Climatic change caused the desertion of the area, which later became the result that the ruins of the Bronze Age are well-preserved underneath the desert soils. The Margiana sites have close connection with those at Bactria, in present-day northern Afghanistan. Sarianidi claims that the Bactria- Margiana complex was the main center of ancient civilization, and also Margiana may even have been a birthplace of Zoroastrianism. Later on you will visit the National History and Ethnology Museum.
