(ORDO NEWS) — Turkey is an amazing country, on the territory of which there were once many ancient states with a great history. From the peoples of the past, there are many magnificent monuments that can be admired today. However, many of these structures tell us that in past centuries there were clearly some advanced technologies on the planet.
Not far from the famous Turkish lake Van there are the remains of the ancient fortress of Chavush-tepe, built at the time when the state of Urartu was in these places (disappeared in the VI century BC). These places are very little studied, although there are absolutely amazing evidence of the past. Here, for example, there are inscriptions carved in basalt. Chavush-Tepe fortress amazes with its amazing stone blocks that go far underground – at the same time, almost no excavations were made at its base. However, even what has already been excavated has shocked researchers – they recently discovered traces of sewage – an underground system of stone “pipes” -channels that run at a depth of 1 meter throughout the fortress. This sewage system is almost 3 thousand years old.
