The "Research Innovative Digital Laboratory for 3D Modeling and Visualization" of the Archeology Office of the History Faculty, the Sterlitamak Branch of Bashkir State University, reconstructs objects of the cultural and historical heritage of Bashkiria using the latest IT technologies.
A new object for digital reconstruction was a fragmented vessel of the Kara-Abyz archaeological culture, discovered during excavations of the Shipov burial mound in the Iglinsky district of the republic. The work was carried out by a 2nd-year student of the Faculty of History Aytugan Galiaskarov and the head of the archeology office Igor Denisov.
The vessel dating from the 3rd-2nd centuries BC refers to the still little-studied Gafurian type of pottery, widespread along the right bank of the middle course of the Belaya River in the Ufa-Sterlitamak segment. The ancient artifact became the first virtually reconstructed object of the Kara-Abyz people - ancient sedentary herders and farmers who inhabited the right bank of the Belaya River in the early Iron Age and will be used in the educational process in the future.
